Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

Well, I have to say that my sympathy is rather limited. If you can afford to live on The Pearl, you won't be used to any discomfort.
Not saying this couldn't have been handled better ... but rich Arabs or expats buying luxury property on an artificial island can do one.

    Mens and Womens TTT Start list

    Not a complete list though? No Cycling Academy on that pdf, but they still think they're competing.

    Quote from: Cycling Academy
    The Viking Mihkel Räim Official was our first rider to land in Doha a few hours ago to prepare for our world championship TTT this Sunday.

    Rest of our riders including Israeli champion Guy Sagiv and Aviv Yecheskel will be landing in the coming days .

    Take a look at the postcards that the Viking sent us from his first training. "It took about 30 min before the water in my bottle started boiling״...

    Maybe the sheikhs had something against an *il team competing, and the UCI 'forgot' to relay that? :shh

    Ignoring the first split, they would have finished just behind the Ogres.

    Did anyone see the sitation with   #raboliv Rabo-Liv rider Anouska Koster?

    Here's a tweet with a video of the situation:
    https://twitter.com/NOSsport/status/785096595557810176

    My question, how do you interpret what happens when she tries to get on the bike again? Is it just her being disoriented, or does the guy who comes running up to her force her off the bike. It looks to me like he's laying it down when she tries to stand up?

    For those complaining about the heat, have you considered that the temperatures during the Tour and the Vuelta are sometimes as high as they were in Doha today and that similar temperatures are known from both Los Angeles,  Atlanta GA , and Athens (in Greece, not GA :) )in August, when they hosted the Olympics?
    I have to say I recall some less pretty sights from the LA olympics, but Atlanta should normally be worse due to high humidity.

    By the way, in TTT it would still be fair competition if they had mandatory stop & drink at the intermediate time checks. I am not really serious about that but in Rio de Janeiro they play football in 4 quarters instead of 2 halfs in the state championships, which are run in summer months, with temperatures sometimes up to 38-40 degrees. I found that quite extreme just sitting in the shade watching, but as long as the air is dry at least you get to cool  a little by sweating. I wonder if part of the problem is humidity not temperature. The sea around the pearl was visibly steaming and the shadows were long hinting at that the temperatures might already have been dropping (which raises relative humidity, makes sweating less effective for cooling down.)

    yes T-72 the humidity is most definitely an issue.

    40 degrees in Perth or LA or France is very different to 40 degrees in Qatar.   its hot and humid and oppressing in a way the body just cannot deal with.

    To give you an idea - on the Tour or on any of the other races there are plenty of people on the roadside ... but in Qatar there is no one.  Its not because they dont care about cycling (they dont but they would come and watch anyway just because its there) but because the heat is so horrible that no one wants to be out in it. 

    Heatstroke is going to be an issue for the road race - whatever the distance

     It looked to me as if Anouska Koster may have blacked out on the bike, thus hitting the barriers.
    Riders were reporting temperatures as high as 43C.
    The problem in Doha for me is that a large proportion of competitors are not season old pros, but young lads and girls.
    The won't have the experience to manage their effort in these conditions and are more susceptible to it's effects.

    The other thing that concerned me was that Kirby (OK not exactly a reliable source) gave the distance for the men's road race, should the extreme weather protocol be enforced.
    The figure he gave over the air was just 102kms. What sort of distance is that, to decide who gets to wear the  #rainbow for a year?

    I've read that the DS made her stop. Probably for her own good.

    I can't find it right now, but I read an article on Saturday that the road race would not be shortened by that much. If they cut the desert loop, they would add laps on The Pearl.
