    Add Porte and Konig to those 7 and do you have the team for the TDF?

    Wonder now if they will keep König off TdF duty and give him the lead for  #red  *es later on - if he puts in a good final week in the Giro.

    there will be codes

    Like these?

    Spoiler (hover to show)


    Did Braisford even consider the international component in all of this?

    I don't doubt that there may be some interesting/entertaining banter to be extracted, post-race, from one or two cars. But during? Why would any team divulge, to the world, what they're about to do?


    Here's a sneak preview at the ASO/UCI/Eurosport Communications Center for Le Tour. They'll sort out all those audio feeds.

    well, we have that during the Tour, don't we? It's just that the Eurosport guys keep talking (because they don't seem to have it on their headphones), so that you can understand nothing at all.

    No. Unless you're referring to something different. What are you referring to?  :P

    every time this little thing appears, there is radio communication from the car broadcasted



    has been there for 2 or 3 years already

    and I think everyone remembers Vaughters' "don't chase" order from the Ronde a couple of years ago. So it's nothing new, just barely in use

    I've never seen that icon before. :slow

    But I would imagine that a team is fully aware of just when their broadcasts are going public?

    That would be quite a bit different from every utterance being channeled through the TV producers control desk.

    If the teams knew everything was being monitored, I doubt we would get much worth hearing.

    Does it get a 2 minute penalty? ;)
    So it's back to a box in the Ibis.
    Not that I care, one way or the other, but it's yet another example of the UCI making up rules as they go along

    Its strange. UCI want to transform cycling into a Giant Global Champions League of Cycling and when a team acts in ditto way it is not allowed.

    Anyway, much ado about nothing.

    Quote from: Porte
    I think it’s one day in the Tour we can’t get too carried away. We saw it in 2013 when we got first and second on a stage and the disaster there. So we’re not getting too far ahead of ourselves.


    Quote from: Thomas
    ... [W]e’re not going to get carried away ... We just have to remember ’13, when Froomie was in the front group by himself, and we really messed up. So you can’t take anything for granted.

    And the answer to the question "You know you are running a successful team when?" is

    - When the disaster scenario you bring up is one where you win the Tour de France by 4'20''  :lol
