Nibali did get a bit of a tow and a few seconds of the magic spanner fixing the rear brake on the move, but nothing of note. I dont think it was enough to make any difference. I agree, Urans crash was a real shocker, lucky it was into the bank but the way the bike bounced down the round after him certainly showed how quick he was going.
A great race and a worthy outcome. While I had others who I was hoping would win, Costa did ride a very smart race.
I read that the Spanish coach was well annoyed with Valverde for not chasing down Costa or anyone for that matter, he reckoned Valverde should have protected Rodriguez and so should have chased down anything that moved ' even the TV motorbike'
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
