  • Drummer Boy: Manequin jerseys for the win.  :D
    July 18, 2021, 19:17
  • Drummer Boy: Not a big fan of these winner's speeches, but no doubt Tadej is glowing. He certainly deserved the victory.
    July 18, 2021, 19:09
  • Drummer Boy: Then no mask required for Pogańćar. Which is good, but confusing.  :S
    July 18, 2021, 19:01
  • Drummer Boy: Anyway, Cav, with his family, appeared happy in Green. I think.
    July 18, 2021, 18:59
  • Drummer Boy: Stupid beyond words.
    July 18, 2021, 18:59
  • Drummer Boy: It's the most idiotic protocol I could imagine.
    July 18, 2021, 18:58
  • Drummer Boy: Why not just not have anyone else up there, so we can actually see the rider's face? I mean, which is more important?
    July 18, 2021, 18:58
  • Drummer Boy: FFS, if they're going to insist on the riders, OF ALL PEOPLE, to be wear on mask on the podium, then don't even bother.
    July 18, 2021, 18:58
  • Drummer Boy: What an amazing Tour it turned out to be for  #tdfjumbo. Who would've ever imagined?
    July 18, 2021, 18:31
  • Drummer Boy: Still would've been fun to see Cav win.
    July 18, 2021, 18:29
  • Drummer Boy: I have to admit, though, there's something slightly comforting in not having EVERYTHING play out according to a pre-written script.
    July 18, 2021, 18:27
  • Drummer Boy: I expected much more from  #deceuninck They never once had control of that.
    July 18, 2021, 18:26
  • Leadbelly: yeah he didnt get to explode
    July 18, 2021, 18:25
  • Drummer Boy: Is Kibry still alive?
    July 18, 2021, 18:24
  • Drummer Boy: I need to see that overhead replay several more times.
    July 18, 2021, 18:24
  • Drummer Boy: Even if Cav were return next year, it'll never have the same drama as this would've.
    July 18, 2021, 18:23
  • Drummer Boy: What the hell is WvA made of?
    July 18, 2021, 18:23
  • Leadbelly: could come back next year ofc
    July 18, 2021, 18:23
  • Drummer Boy: That one gonna eat at Cavendish for years.
    July 18, 2021, 18:22
  • Leadbelly: teunissen
    July 18, 2021, 18:22
  • Drummer Boy: Who was the other Jumbo rider up front?
    July 18, 2021, 18:22
  • Leadbelly: not bad for debris
    July 18, 2021, 18:21
  • Drummer Boy: That never looked good for Cavedish at any point.
    July 18, 2021, 18:21
  • Mellow Velo: Belgian road block. :D
    July 18, 2021, 18:21
  • search: not too bad
    July 18, 2021, 18:20
  • search: 5th for Greipel
    July 18, 2021, 18:20
  • Drummer Boy: Insane
    July 18, 2021, 18:20
  • Drummer Boy: WOWOWOWOWOWOW
    July 18, 2021, 18:20
  • Mellow Velo: Oh dear never mind.
    July 18, 2021, 18:19
  • Drummer Boy: No gifts today.
    July 18, 2021, 18:17
  • Drummer Boy: Damn this is tense.
    July 18, 2021, 18:16
  • search: work done, I think
    July 18, 2021, 18:16
  • Drummer Boy: work done, it seems
    July 18, 2021, 18:16
  • Drummer Boy: Did Alaphilippe drop a chain there, or is his work done?
    July 18, 2021, 18:16
  • Drummer Boy: Coming together a bit now
    July 18, 2021, 18:15
  • search: yeah, at the front now
    July 18, 2021, 18:15
  • Leadbelly: moved up a bit now
    July 18, 2021, 18:15
  • Drummer Boy: Um....:slow
    July 18, 2021, 18:14
  • Leadbelly: he was quite far back with a couple of team mates
    July 18, 2021, 18:14
  • Drummer Boy: This is mania.  :o
    July 18, 2021, 18:14
  • Drummer Boy: I don't see Cav yet.
    July 18, 2021, 18:13
  • Mellow Velo: There is debris, just no Belgian conspiracy. ;)
    July 18, 2021, 18:13
  • Drummer Boy: Thomas?!?!
    July 18, 2021, 18:13
  • Drummer Boy: They're leaving this chase a bit late.
    July 18, 2021, 18:13
  • Drummer Boy: Jeezus :fp
    July 18, 2021, 18:12
  • Mellow Velo: LOL There's been a Belgian conspiracy to sabotage the race by chucking debris on the road.
    July 18, 2021, 18:12
  • Drummer Boy: Anthony McCrossan & Simon Gerrans are like the anti-Kirby comm team. Pretty low-key even when there's excitement on the road.
    July 18, 2021, 18:11
  • Drummer Boy: I didn't see it either, but it's being reported.
    July 18, 2021, 18:11
  • search: didn't see it. What happens if Turgis gets lapped?
    July 18, 2021, 18:10
  • Drummer Boy: Ballerini with a mechanical?
    July 18, 2021, 18:09
  • Drummer Boy: He must be out of seat like never before.
    July 18, 2021, 18:09
  • Leadbelly: which he'll struggle to say no doubt as he chokes up
    July 18, 2021, 18:08
  • Drummer Boy: I'll have to find a clip of him calling it later.
    July 18, 2021, 18:08
  • Leadbelly: you can tell he's got a little speech ready :P
    July 18, 2021, 18:08
  • Drummer Boy: OMG, his must be out of his MIND with this finish!
    July 18, 2021, 18:08
  • Leadbelly: kirby's building himself up for the finale and a win for cav. somebody else winning would pr*ck his balloon most amusingly
    July 18, 2021, 18:07
  • Drummer Boy: B&B to steal the show.  :D
    July 18, 2021, 18:07
  • Drummer Boy: With so much on the line for the strongest team there, today would seem like the one with the slimmest of chances for a break to stay away.
    July 18, 2021, 18:00
  • Drummer Boy: At least they get multiple looks at it long before the time comes.
    July 18, 2021, 18:00
  • Leadbelly: couldnt see any holes at 100m to go. bit it looked a bit bumpy going over the zebra crossing /speed bumps at that point
    July 18, 2021, 17:58
  • Drummer Boy: Van Aert is a savage though. That can't be denied.
    July 18, 2021, 17:53
  • Drummer Boy: He's just so good when under pressure.
    July 18, 2021, 17:51
  • Drummer Boy: Cav looked good in the intermediate though. I still think he's going to win with a big gap.
    July 18, 2021, 17:50
  • Drummer Boy: But if they miscalculate this one, we'll never the end of it from Horner for not seizing the opportunity on Stage 19.
    July 18, 2021, 17:49
  • Drummer Boy: I would think the longer straightaway would play to the strength of  #deceuninck.
    July 18, 2021, 17:48
  • Drummer Boy: plural: "holes"
    July 18, 2021, 17:46
  • Drummer Boy: Curious stage recon from Gerrans just now. It appears they've smoothed out much of the cobbles on the final run-in, but he did mention some "big hole" about 100 meters before the line, which seems...unacceptable.
    July 18, 2021, 17:46
  • search: Balaphilippe chasing down #bora Ide Schelling. Looks like he read the interview that Schelling wants to win today ;)
    July 18, 2021, 17:44
  • Drummer Boy: I guess it would be even weirder if one person had dominated the finishing sprints as Cav has. If the wins had been spread out amongst a number of different riders, then maybe not so bad for someone else to take green. Still weird though.
    July 18, 2021, 17:42
  • search: yep, 2014 and 2015. #green without a stage win
    July 18, 2021, 17:41
  • search: not sure, but I think so
    July 18, 2021, 17:41
  • Drummer Boy: Did he?
    July 18, 2021, 17:40
  • search: didn't Sagan do it twice? ;)
    July 18, 2021, 17:40
  • Drummer Boy: How weird would it be to win Green without having won a single finishing sprint? I wouldn't want to see that.
    July 18, 2021, 17:39
  • search: Matthews would need to win now to take #green btw, even if Cav gets 0. So it made sense to go for it
    July 18, 2021, 17:38
  • search: with the new finish it's a bit more difficult
    July 18, 2021, 17:37
  • Drummer Boy: I won't be at all surprised if the finish replicates what Renshaw and Cav did a number of years ago, leaving everyone in the dust.
    July 18, 2021, 17:37
  • Drummer Boy: Is there tyipically an intermediate sprint on the Champs? I can't recall.
    July 18, 2021, 17:35
  • search: yeah, just in case I guess. Late mechanical, or crash...
    July 18, 2021, 17:34
  • Mellow Velo: Bonus Green points there
    July 18, 2021, 17:33
  • Drummer Boy: That looked easy. But why is Cavenish concerned with the intermediate?
    July 18, 2021, 17:33
  • search: right before the intermediate sprint. Great timing! ;)
    July 18, 2021, 17:33
  • search: Armirail now. Can all 4 #groupama riders manage to attack within one lap?
    July 18, 2021, 17:32
  • Drummer Boy: I see some new UCI standards on the horizon.  :lol
    July 18, 2021, 17:32
  • Drummer Boy: :P
    July 18, 2021, 17:31
  • Mellow Velo: There has been some serious helmet hair faux pas this tour. :D
    July 18, 2021, 17:31
  • Mellow Velo: They will knock out these final 42kms in 50 minutes. Quite a contrast to the parade kms.
    July 18, 2021, 17:30
  • search: he is the one with hair out of the helmet holes
    July 18, 2021, 17:30
  • search: Madouas! I found a way to distinguish him and Gaudu, by the way
    July 18, 2021, 17:30
  • Drummer Boy: Liggett postulating that the reason for the narrower roads is...Covid. :fp
    July 18, 2021, 17:24
  • Drummer Boy: True race commencing...
    July 18, 2021, 17:16
  • Drummer Boy: Which is why the pushed the finish line further up the road.
    July 18, 2021, 17:16
  • Drummer Boy: New bike lanes now reducing the road into the final bend to half of its previous width. Ironically.
    July 18, 2021, 17:15
  • Drummer Boy: Through The Louvre. Such an odd sight.
    July 18, 2021, 17:13
  • Drummer Boy: *hadn't
    July 18, 2021, 17:12
  • Drummer Boy: Looks like full crowds after all. Not sure what those previous reports about supposedly lighter crowds was all about. Unless people just hasn't yet gathered at the earlier hours.
    July 18, 2021, 17:11
  • Drummer Boy: Denmark looks beautiful in this little 2022 promo clip they just showed.
    July 18, 2021, 17:05
  • Drummer Boy: MV, have you ever been to Paris for the final day of the Tour? I think you may have, but perhaps I'm misremembering.
    July 18, 2021, 16:54
  • Drummer Boy: If not somewhat irresponsible as a network mouthpiece.
    July 18, 2021, 16:48
  • Drummer Boy: That seems like a bit of a leap of imagination, though.
