Re: Vuelta al Pais Vasco 2017

My brain's filing system isn't working enough to give details and checking PCS isn't jogging my memory, but I have a vague recollection from ~5 years ago of someone puncturing towards the end of a GT stage and getting pushed by a team mate over the 3km mark and being given the same time as the rest of the group.

Anybody with a better memory or am I making it totally up? :lol

Closest thing I can remember to that is when Contador punctured near the end of stage 3 of the 2010 Tour and rode in on his flat while Vinokourov still pushed the pace in the group that Contador had been in instead of giving him his wheel or bike. Some said it was a sensible move as Contador would still get the time of the group that he'd been in although he didn't and given subsequent events it didn't really matter anyway.
