 I was coming here, having just caught up witnessing the finish, to say that watching the racing here and at the Giro, this week is like watching 5 hours of a Scandi mystery, followed by 15 minutes of Tom Cruises latest MI. :D

 However, having now also caught up with the result, I think I should have gone with a WWE analogy.

 This is one of the most ludicrous decisions that I can remember.
 Same thing happened to Flo's boy, Alberto at the Tour: got caught up behind a second crash and shipped a bunch load of time as a result.

 The rule is that you have to be in the bunch at 3kms to get the same time and no way was TJ in the bunch.
Plus, it wasn't even at 3kms!

This is why this sport is viewed by some as a joke. We have rules, but they are always open to interpretation. I prefer the term flexible. :(
