Nairo is racing up Ventoux next week. They climb it twice. Twice as many attacks.
I've drank 1.5l of wine and 5beers and tomorrow I'll have to ride 100+km with over 2k climb. Also lots of cakes.fml

Apparently GVA most likely will join AG2R next year. They most like not winning very much.
Bardet is leaving, maybe they'll become a classic team.
Reading up on transfer news. De Plus has signed for Ineos (3 years) and is on the shitlist now.

UPDATE ON @vincenzonibali after yesterday's crash @StradeBianche. He will undergo a radiological check of his left hand this afternoon. He has spent a peaceful night but still have pain at the thenar eminence area. Further updates will be provided later in the afternoon.
>>101178183Why do they do my boy TACO like this...
>>101179287>thenar eminence areaDid they just make that up or is it a euphemism for penis or something
>>101179398I think he does have some talent though, unlike those other washed up hacks. Hope he finds another team.

My predictions for Sanremo, Flanders and Roubaix:Mathieu "Crack" Van der Poel won't win any of them
>>101178596I feel the same way, and I feel so dumb. I hadn't had a drink since [spoiler]monday[/spoiler] and I felt perfect, why did I have to ruin that?>>101180311Neither will GVA
>>101180562True, but at least GVA's legs were good
>>101180311Flanders and roubaix are in 2 months. His form doesn't look good for san remo though
>>101181412Maybe he's just been gaming during the corona holidays, that's how he is. He likes to train during races, there's a reason why he didn't DNF.
>>101181540I'm sure he trained properly. It's more probable that he doesn't stand the heat.

>>101185172For me, it's Groenewegen
>>101185293Was injured in the Tour and still won a stage. Or is that a fake race too
update: it was horrible, the chain saw profile with a big climb in the middle killed me, had to drag my fat ass home at 23km/h. Fucking 130km with 2100 climb, felt completely empty near the end. Lost like 3kg even tho I stayed hydrated. I have to eat a lot more. Hope I can go under 80kg this August.Miss the days where a ride like this would be nothing special.
>>101186485Just ride more friend. At that weight it's almost impossible not to lose weight if you go riding 4 times a week.
>>101186485Just pedal harder bro
>>101189848Is that Pantano with Izagirre? He was pretty based.

>>101184346Very excited for this one, considering the GC riders that'll be competing. Obviously I'm backing Ritchie Porte to win
>>101193721>Nibali is also participating btwSo the hand is ok?
Any good sources on bikefitting? Have only been riding for half a year (did 130km around part of Lago Maggiore 2 weeks ago, 6h, longest ride yet). But I had massive pain in my hands/wrists after 3h and my behind as well. At the end of it I was literally putting my fists on the handlebars to be able to continue. I think my position might be slightly front heavy? But I am very unsure on how to find this out and fix it.>inb4 harden the fuck upthere is a difference between discomfort and outright pain
>>101204569The only real solution is to spend the 200€ and get a bike fitting done
>>101204569> Any good sources on bikefitting?you can go on yt and find good bike fitters that literally give opposing instructions.the problem is that sometimes the source to your pain can not be traced directly. you mean back pain or literally ass pain?>>101204672sometimes even bike fitters don't get it right, but yeah I agree
>Nils Pollit to Bora HansgroheDamn... BORA just keeps getting more and more based
>>101204569https://torger.se/anders/bikefit/https://www.stevehoggbikefitting.com/category/prime/ (check the popular posts)https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMZ241fyVfiv3eAJ4UYkzeb2JltpLSlzsUnderstanding bike fitting will help you more in the long run. You can pay someone if you don't want to learn. If you do you'll be able to adjust your fit over time, as your body will also change over time. Even if you end up paying someone it is good to understand the basics.I also think that you are the only person that can give yourself the best fit. Sitting on a trainer in the bike fitting studio is much different from sitting on the bike after a 4h hard ride within a 20h training week. So if you understand the basics you'll always be a better bike fitter than what some person can be in a couple hours.
Damn the break in the trittico is a lot ahead, almost an entire lap.
strava has never been good but now it's literal shit, whats even the fucking point
If you had to pick one, would you guys rather win the famous and historic Amstel™ Gold™ race or the fairly recent Strade Bianche?
Trittico live in few minutes>>101206106Strade is more fun but Amstel is the real 6th monument for now
>>101206106strade bianche makes for kino footageinteresting how a Cancelleara attack put that race completely on the map.But Amstel is the proper race, not even a question.

Wiggins says G will win the tour and would have won last year too if they didn't cancel the stage.
>>101209372his chances are worse than last year the average Ineos rider now knows that Bernal is stronger and will give him more support than last year
>>101209399Bernal didn't look super strong last year though. He gained most his time when nobody chased him and G sat in the group. I think Wiggins could be right. And Pinot would have own if he didn't get injured don't forget. Also where the fuck are Jumbo hiding? 3 races today and they didn't enter any of them.
>>101209429It sucks how Roglic has become a tourbabby now. In previous years he was always dominating the 1 week races, winning almost everything he entered. Now he does fuck all all season, just to end up 3rd or something in the tour. Is the tour really that important?
>>101209372Wiggins is a blowhard and when is he going to make that "big reveal" he's promised so many times?
>>101209220I'm considering either time or custom steel in europe
>>101209429chilling on their drijftenues
>>101209167all these reruns Eurosport has been running with Bjorg showing so much promise again and again have been pretty brutal ;_;
>>101209332Lmao. The funniest thing though is that he out-jewed the jews and got a 5 years contract without showing his current form lol.
What the fuck they've turned milan torino into a flat race

>hey brother I'm changing my system to campy, would you like to keep the old sram red and update that old frame to 10speed so we can ride again? You can also keep my old mavic ksyrium, they are a decent all whether weelset. All you really need is to dump that old triple crank and buy a cheap double tiagra or something and a new set of cables>what do you mean you're assembling it on a guy you know that is really cheap?>what do you he said the crank was fine, he's just removing the litle chainring? the whole crank is bent ffs>what do you mean no new cables? he said that cables are only bad when they're broken, hum? behold pic related, I don't even know where to startalso my dumb brother just broke his arm doing skateboard so I'm not even ridding with him for a month kek

If you had to pick between the following two palmares, which would you go for?* 2 stage wins in the TDF + 2 stage wins in the DauphinéOr* 43rd in the World Championships Road Race
>>101221717I would take the 43th place because being Mathieu I will certainly win a lot more than whoever that other fraud is
For me, the greatest cyclist to ever finish 43rd at the world championships road race of all time
Carl Frederik Hagen to Israel startup nation
Porte to Ineos btw

>>101223995But I thought rim brake where inferior. Surely ineos isn't using inferior technology aren't they?
>>101224185You just don't get it, just a matter of time until every rym brake over heats and blows up all of the pelotons inner tubes and then they smash into children descending the tourmalet!You don't hate children, do you?
>>101223995I don't understand it.Shouldn't bike manufacturers be easily making bikes that weigh under 6 kg, but it's just UCI rules?They should be able to easily make a 7 kg disk brake bike.
>>101224185Izagirre was 27 seconds faster than the peloton yesterday, entirely due to his disc brakes (it was a rainy race)
>>101224659Plenty of disc brake bikes are already between 6.8-7kgThere is a movement to get rid of the 6.8 rule, probably the rim copers lobby so they can continue to justify their existence as they crash in a corner on a slightly damp day
>>101224659You can get SL6 Tarmac to around 6 kg with a bit of weight weenieism. Getting disc brake bikes to the 6.8 kg isn't really an issue anymore unless you've got an aero bike.

After winning Strade Bianche on Saturday, Wout van Aert asked his soigneur and mechanic not to wash his sweat and dirt-covered Jumbo-Visma jersey and his Bianchi bike, as he was keen to add them to a growing personal collection of cycling memorabilia."Over the years I've become a collector of special cycling jerseys. I think those souvenirs are much more beautiful than the trophies you get on the podium. I plan to make a private museum with everything later in life," Van Aert said, according to Het Nieuwsblad."I've kept the original jersey with the race number from all three of my world cyclo-cross titles, including the mud on them. The skinsuit I wore when I won the stage at last year's Tour is next to it." Van Aert is now making extra room for his Strade Bianche memorabilia and wants to keep everything from his victorious ride on the dirt roads of Tuscany.
>>101225785imagine the smell
>>101225701Lol Froome is not going to make the Tour team, is he. Good, fuck him.
>>101225838however, moleman for tour podium confirmed
>>101225838He's been working as a domestique, can't really say anything about his form based on this.
>>101225849Big Tom, Kruijswijk, Mollema podium, I'm not settling for anything less.
>>101225838Chris Froome once looked down and out and then he won the Giro, I'm not counting him out ever (although Bernal is a better cyclist)
>>101226157I hate frauoome as much as the next guy, but in what way is Bernal a better cyclist?
>>101226219In that Bernal is the 2nd best stage racer after Roglic atm
>>101226292Ah, you're talking about form. Froome would run circles around Bernal if both were in top form imo
>>101224659Aero bikes with fat tube shapes are heavier. An absolute unit of a bike like the Madone or Systemsix will never be 6.8kg. Looks like the full blown aero meme is dying anyway. Specialized even slimmed down the Venge last year. Now they are getting rid of it. It wasn't too long ago that we had the absolute abomination that was the Venge vias. Now with disk brakes even the climbing bikes are over 6.8kg once you add pedals, power meter, cages, computer mount.
>>101225838I hope he makes it. And I hope he is in such great shape that it causes tension in the ineos camp. It will be much more interesting if that is the case. Same with Jumbo. I hope all 3 are in the best shape of their lives and all wanting to make the podium.
Jumbo team for Dauphine next weekBernal Thomas and Froome all racing tooand Pinot, Pogacar, Nairo, Alaphillipe, Buchmannwew ladshttps://www.cyclingstage.com/criterium-du-dauphine-2020/
>>101226729Well that's going to be a thing.
>>101226348Really? Interesting, maybe I'm too high on Bernal or playing down Froome's career, but I estimate Bernal as a rare, bigger talent that's going to dominate grand Tours the next decade
>>101226729holy shittour preview++
>>101226729Wew, I just got a warm fuzzy feeling from your post, thanks friend. Really looking forward to it.
>>101226863I dunno, is bernal a better climber, is he a better TT? is he a better descender? does he recover as good in face of adversity? Froome in form is one of the best in almost every category when he's on form imo>>101226729this is totally not a recipe for disaster
>>101227263fucking hell I'm writing like shit sorry
>>101227263I remember a couple of years ago being frustrated thinking about ways for anyone to beat froome. My conclusion then was that he was just absolutely unbeatable. People seem to forget just how dominant he was in his best years.
>>101226863The guy has 2 vuelta 4 TDF and 1 giro. For bernal to have a better career than Froome he has to end up as the goat.
>>101177733Latour and Bardet will left the team. I think the team is switching its strategy. They're becoming a classical/Tour stage team.It seems based to me, French teams aren't strong enough to win a Grand Tour and the jack of all trade strategy is inneficient (B&B, Cofidis, Total) .
>>101227263Bernal a better climber and a descender imo, Froome a better ITT. But last year we had a young Bernal won the TDF on his first try, having also won Paris-Nice and Suisse, and we saw him perform well in the October Italian classics - podium in Lombardy, I've just been so impressed by his ability, maturity, how quickly he seems to learn (anecdotally he was told what echelons were in a hotel by Luke Rowe and the next day he was pulling one) so he just seems like such a strong rider to me, I think I'd rather have him than a young Froome to build a career on
>>101227361Lots of asterisks with those wins. In a few years there will probably be (no winner) in the history books. Maybe he can keep his results from 2009 and earlier, like the zigzagging on San Luca. I wonder if people even remember that first Vuelta, it was a complete laughing stock with Cobo and Froome. It's up there with the Horner Vuelta for most ridiculous GT.
>>101227381Seems based to me too; I would also like Bardet to try the Giro + Vuelta instead of the tour; so he at least has two chances - although fucking hell, he's 29 years old already
>>101227774He will never win a GT, just is not the right type of rider for it.
>>101227558> anecdotally he was told what echelons were in a hotel by Luke Rowe and the next day he was pulling onedo you actually believe that? come on now
>>101227774Bardet will win a GT once they run one with extremely minimal TT kilometers, otherwise he has no chance
>>101227582Every gt winner of the last 70 years has been on juice. Do you think Bernal won't take whatever from was taking at ineos?
>>101227582what GT ever doesn't have an asterisk?
>>101227852He could win a Vuelta with their crazy steep climbs and love of uphill finishes.this is the ITT in this year's vuelta, 30km flat and then finishing on this 1.5km climb. Doesn't get much better than this
>>101227947>30km flatthis kills the bardet . jpg
>>101227774Bardet would be a french Purito Rodríguez, good in climbs, irrelevant in TTs, and losing GTs by this
>>101227984you're probably right, but even then all the stars had to align for him to win
>>101227984Come on, he started at ONCE which was one of the biggest doping teams. Then years at CSC with Mr. 60% as manager. Yes, never tested positive but neither did Rasmussen in those years so that doesn't say anything.
>>101228481fuck you Sastre was clean
>>101226729Now that's what I call a real race.
>>101228013This, I thoutgh Pierre Latour could be his successor but it seems that AG2R doesn't beleive in him.
>>101227947>30km flatHe would have lost 3 minutes by then lmao.
>>101230004Gaudu seems more promising.
How would be a Tour de Lebanon?
>>101230215please don't make me say it
>>101230004Gaudu is the next PinotCosnefroy the next AlaphilippeLatour is the next Rolland
Bros why the fuck didn't Ineos send Pavel Sivakov to the Vuelta last year?
>>101230463Injury, I believe
>>101228749Kek you probably still believe in Sinterklaas too
>>101230215Probably with a lot of short climbs. You know, for explosive type of riders haha
>>101212500Guys, I just wanted to let you know this post (I can't delete it anymore) was NOT AN ENDORSEMENT to buy a rim brake bike. I don't want you guys to end up on rim brakes and crash and get injured when you ride through a shallow puddle of water, I wouldn't be able to handle the guilt
>>101226729The top cg gets to be capn at the tour an the rest will be sunwebbed through the season
Why do good riders from flat countries like the netherlands even exist how

>>101190464Tdf might. I don't know if tour of California is happening this year.
>>101205687Easier to keep track of your miles accurately.
>>101223995Why are pros using disc brakes anyway?
>>101239995They ride what people pay them to ride. And now you have to convince freds with aero climbing rim brake bikes that they need aero climbing disc brake bikes.
Good to see the /cyc/ threads are finally waking up to the treath of disc brakes

>this is unironically some people's favourite for Sanremo
Tour de Pologne is that 80 kmh downhill sprint finish
>>101246556It's usually a good race bro.
What do /cyc/ think about the new Milan-Sanreom ?
>>101246692This i the first time I watch it and it looks like a transition flat stage of Tour de France (clean road, flat as hell, 120% chance of sprint). Not very exciting for a one day race.
>>101246712What's new about it?
>>101246747Yeah this year is like that, but usually there are 2 nice climbs at the end.Normally, it's a preparation for the Lombardia; this year is a preparation for Milano-Sanremo. That's why they changed it.
>>101246647Oh yeah that Mezgec won last year right. Pretty crazy finish
it's pretty shitty when it's 30km to go and the 1st group is 1min away in a flat stage
>>101246815Thank you for the rundown. >>101246808They changed the route because of COVID.
>>101246692fuck them for changing that iconic Superga climb with this shit tier sprinters finish. Did they give any explanation at the start of the broadcast? I turned on the TV a bit late.>>101246712it will be interesting to see how much those 700 more metres of climbs will affect the very last kms of the race. I guess they will favour attackers on the Poggio and sprinters like who get better as the race gets harder.I'd say something like:1) Van Aert2) Kwiato3) Gilbert...X) Kristoff
>>101246850Doesn't really matter, as long as final is unchanged it will be decided on the Poggio. Then a small group will stay away, or the sprinters come back after holding on to cars like Demare.
>>101246885Yes, it's a preparation race for Milano-Sanremo this year, that's why they changed it into a flat race.
>>101246644I'll tolerate your attempt at bullying VdP my wallon friend, but don't post twitter screencap here, even more La Flamme Rouge.
>>101246808Some coast towns didn't want the race to pass on their roads so they had to change the normal route.Lefevere sounded pretty butthurt it about it when they interviewed him. He insinuated that they won't pass in those towns even after the corona just to spite them lmao.
>>101246995Lefevere is always butthurt about everything, but he is just a hypocritical whining boomer cunt.

Lmao that crash looks almost comical.
>>101247423At least he fell too
i like how the retard got ran over for causing the crash. hope he breaks a leg
They need to start giving suspensions for this kind of stuff. That was too blatant.
Getting an 80kg man who travelling at 7Okm/h thrown at youRIP
>>101247436Hahahaha didn't catch that at first, he got fucked up dude
Man Jakobsen is lucky if he wasn't killed thereHe came to full stop from 80kph almost instantly that was fucked
Actually, looking it at full speed, it looks fucking sick.
Based polish subhumans just replaying the gore
Welp nice publicity for the sport, well done m8
This isn't the happy return to cycling I was hoping for.
old guy reanimating
A-any updates, y'know? Some updates w-would be nice? Not like I didn't get to see a guy get murdered or anything? He totally didn't split his head open on that stationary metal framing while he was going 80+km/h. Appreciate the snooker coverage Eurosport but y'know
>>101247501hes right simple as
Oh fucking hell
Goddammit not this shit again in fucking Poland
The lack of news is worrying bros.
Jakobsen is conscious according to some Twitter Pole. Covered in blood though
what the actual fuck has gone trough that dutch shit head

>>101247863That guy with the camera is dead for sure.
>>101247863Literally drives Jakobsen into the barriers to prevent him from overtaking. Honestly these need long bans.
>>101247863https://twitter.com/Rybitzky/status/1291048697686622212This one is way better

>>101247917But Viviani still won the omnium gold even with Cav crashing on purpose. And seething Brits trying to defend how he did nothing wrong.
>>101247863You know I think Jakobsen could have passed the finish line as second, while flying. He may have won.
apparently this is nothing new with that guyhttps://twitter.com/JacquesLeunis/status/782603105561112576
Barriers didn't even remotely do their job. Organisers have a lot of shit to answer for both with that and the course if you ask me.
>>101247956His helmet gets torn off almost immediately...
>>101247968PCS lists him as 2nd behind Groenewegen (who's DQd) so yeah it could well be.
>>101247972That's some nice save
>>101247915>>101247956fugggg>>101247938To think Sagan got booted from the tour for literally a ghost elbow that never connected, for sure this has repercussions. It should have. What a dangerous retard move.

>>101247968Yeah, it's even more clear from the above footage.
>>101248041ffffffffuckGreenstreets you retard, at least take out some Brits if you're gonna take out anyone, not your fellow Dutchmen
>>101248041>>101248055Polish tv said medically induced comaWhat about the old referee dude tho
What do you guys think happens if Jakobsen gets rekt here?Is Gronewegen done in the sport?Imagine this has to piss off a lot of the power players in cycling.
>>101248092wouldnt say it looks too good for him
>>101248099Should be. And knowing how the pro peloton works he has no business in any professional races at least for a while.
>>101248092I read he was being resuscitated. But if you see the impact there is no way he survived that.
>>101247863IS there some elbow action? If yes kill him on the spot
>>101248078ffffffffffffuck. One year after Bjorg. Cursed day.
It's so annoying also because Jakobsen did everything right and would comfortably win this stage if not for the shenanigans.
>>101248099Yeah I think it's over for him. We have seen moves like this many times before (Cavendish vs Veelers) and nothing much happened but if someone dies it's a whole other story. Like if you are whatsapping in your car and hit a pedestrian or just miss him by 1 cm. Small difference in what actually happened but big difference for your life.
>>101247991He might end up like Stig Broeckx.Career over for like 95% sure.
As a m.d., a high-energy trauma like that is usually life-threatening and quite often fatal.Especially with the elderly.Imagine being hit suddenly by an 80kg object going 60km/u, your body does not like that.What's also not helping is the fact that he be the looks of it he hit the scaffolding.Sudden acceleration due to extreme force followed by a sudden instant deceleration.That's what tears your aorta apart for example.I give him little chance.F.
>>101248223Was replying to about the old dude>>101248092
Just did some rudimentary calculations.Photographer might have endured around 9-15 kiloNewton of force. 7.5 kN is enough force to fracture skull in 80% of cases.not looking good.
>>101248223>60km/uProbably closer to 80 km/h with this finish, although I guess some speed was lost before it hit him so maybe this comment is stupid and dumb.
>>101248245Assumptions: Jakobsen weight 80kgSpeed: 75-80km/hDuration of crash: 1 to 2 secondsDistance of crash: 2-3 meters (probably conservative)Conclusion: RIP
>>101248288Yeah old man has no chance. F
>>101248245>>101248288>>101248223old dude is dead for sure, F for himdamn, can't imagine having to live with that guilt, knowing you caused someone's death
>>101248321I once watched a documentary about this. Dimitri de Fauw who caused the crash that killed Isaac Galvez. Years later he killed himself.
>>101248307>>101248321At the same time I've had elderly people in my E.R. that suffered more severe trauma mechanisms than this that made it.Just very unlikely.
Apparently the old dude is fine. Wtf?Source: Polish TV.
>>101247991dude i noticed that too, shit gave me chills, i hope he can walk again let alone race.
>>101248414If true the barriers absorbed more of the force than it looked like on the images.hoping he makes it
>>101248414Maybe he wasn't hit in the head at all.From some of the footage it looks like he gets caught a bit lower.
>Record scratch>Freeze frameYeah that's me. You're probably wondering how I ended up in this situation...
>>101248414Polish boomers are strong, but yeah. Doubt
This reminds me of the Lambrecht situation so much, he was also reported to be conscious after a bad crash but taken to the hospital before he died from internal bleeding. Hopefully Jakobsen is OK, he's certainly a physically much stronger man than poor Bjorg if that means anything
>reports say that Dylan Groenewegen shouted WE GAAN before crashing into Jakobsen
>Sick wattage bro
>>101248452Those barriers just completely giving up wtf. You'd think it would be possible to produce 2x300 m of high quality and safe barriers, but apparently they just have the local trade school weld some scrap metal together.
>>101248442>>101248414Watched it again, he gets hit in the shoulder/neck from above by the bike and lower by the barriers. Guessing he will make it.
With Annemiek in Rio I thought she was dead for sure too. Let's hope it will be okay.
>>101248452>barriers made out of chinesium
>>101248520dude watching that live was scary, everyone in /cyc/ thought she died. That completely lifeless body just after hitting her neck in that weird way
I'm honestly not sure what Groenewegen did was that bad - or at least, that it's that out of the ordinary. Almost par for the course in sprints these days. Maybe they'll crack down harder on it now (seems like a good idea), but given recent years, I wouldn't have been surprised if the results had stood - if no one crashed, of course.
>>101248488>tfw remember reading that he was ripping grass out of the ground before going unconscious
>>101248510Let's hope >>101248458 is right.
>>101248560You didn't see the helicopter footage then.Just slams the door on him.
Sporza: Onze Renaat Schotte is ter plaatse aan de finish. "Jakobsen werd in een ziekenwagen afgevoerd. Er zijn verschillende reanimatiepogingen geweest. Hij zou in een kunstmatig coma gebracht zijn", weet onze reporter.That sounds bad
>>101248612If he dies, the other retard won't race again.
>>101248608Yeah, that happens in about every other sprint though, and it's seemingly been deemed "fine" by jurys over the years. It's obviously super dangerous and should be have been judged more harshly, but it hasn't been in the past.
> /cyc/ racing is backnot like this
>>101248629why does he have to die first?that big retard should be banned regardless
>>101248619This isn't even the full footage. He comes from way further left before this when Jakobsen is coming around on the inside with plenty of room.
>>101248643>https://twitter.com/obserwujesobie/status/1291051502900064256Dude, look at the shoulder shrug groenewegen does. Retard probably did it instictively. Jakobsen could't do anything to not end up in the barriers
>>101248658Yeah, I don’t remember if it was something translated I read on here or if it was Twitter
I am a very calm person and never actually get angry but im fucking boiling lads. FUCK GROENEWEGEN
>>101248154yes there is, i have seen it on a slow motion clip
Groenewegen was disqualified.
Jakobsen is lying on the asphalt all the time, he's covered in blood. From what I learned, his teeth are knocked out. Fortunately, he is conscious, but a helicopter is landing for him - he told us a moment before 19 Karol Górka, Sport.pl journalist and our envoy at the 77th Tour de Pologne. - Jakobsen is not fit to be taken by helicopter. From what I have established, further resuscitation will take place in the ambulance - added Górka, who was still at the scene of the accident, several minutes later.TVP Sport commentators just after 19 reported that Jakobsen had been put into a pharmacological coma and that his condition was serious. - The Dutchman has already been taken to hospital. Fortunately, the judge is in better condition - he told us Górka at 19.20.
>>101248714Oplossing: nuke de randstand
>>101248612God I hope Jakobsen doesn't go out like this. Just 23 y/o, big future ahead of him.Podium of jodium r-right lads. Ha-h...
>>101248724n-no please; too many parallels
>>101248728The first good idea ive ever heard from a Belgian. Lets do it.
>>101248724I'm happy for the old man at least so far.Hope he gets to spend good time with his grandkids.
Fuck you giant babby groenewegen life time ban
This seems more serious than initially reported now...
>>101248560Yeah if no one had crashed big baby would've gotten to keep his win without a doubt. But the jurys have been way too lenient with changing lines at sprints. Mostly because spectators cry if their favourite guy gets thrown out the race for something that's super dangerous.
>>101248914I doubt he would have kept it tbqhIf you do that at a big race like say the tdf you lose it with that closing the door even if no one goes down, but maybe in a race like this he might if lucky.
>>101248775With different barriers that could end up in a decapitation.
>>101248914>Yeah if no one had crashed big baby would've gotten to keep his win without a doubt.NopeNo crash = dq for the raceCrash = at least a year
P-p-please be ok Jakobsen
>>101248997Just no.When did someone get a year for causing a crash?Would only happen if very serious injuries.
>>101249011Groenewegen will be obliterated by the UCI for this
>>101249040If Jakobsen dies there will be criminal charges pressed
>>101248452That wheel breaking :O Tbh great picture
>>101249097Yes, but that wasn't the issue.
Removing Groenewegen from my PCM gameGiving a boost to Jakobsen stats
>>101249103Yeah pretty impressive picture actually I like how clear it is despite how fast they’re going
>>101249011Those bricks looks very unsafe.Imagine hitting head into those.
>>101248798Hopefully it improves his odds at least a little that it's in the middle of a city, and not out in the countryside. But yeah, not good.
>>101249200Did he delete this already? I can’t find it
>Here is the latest information from the race doctor, Dr. Barbara Jerschina, who participated in the medical treatment of Fabio Jakobsen:>"We did everything that could be done. The working conditions were very hard, it is a very serious craniocerebral trauma, a broken palate, so it was difficult to intubate, but the laryngeal tubes and oxygen were connected all the time. We maintained the level of saturation and life activities. The heart was working well, it was maintaining the right pressure."When asked by journalists whether there was a threat to life, she unfortunately answered in the affirmative.>"This cyclist is very seriously injured and is life threatening. The palate and the upper respiratory tract were crushed, but he managed to intubate, he went to the hospital, but lost a lot of blood. He is alive after all, he is with us and let's hope we win"

Fuck Fuck Fuck.F to Jakobsen. Tour of Poland is cursed.
>>101249011Cute concrete blocks lmao
>>101249239Press J to support Jakobsen J
>>101249239fuck 2 years ago fabio jakobsen met fabio casartelli's parents purely coincidental at the casartelli monument on the descent when the tour de france passed ... that was the descent where phil gilbert crashed into that ravine (but was okay)https://twitter.com/NOSsport/status/1021862108936450049this all feels like some dark fate, so fucked up
>>101249239Goddamn this is so sad. I am sad and angry at the same time, its really not a nice feeling
From the spokesperson at the hospital Jakobsen is being treated:>At this moment procedures are carried out with the aim of saving the patient's life. Situation is very dynamic and I can't say anything more right now.it's the hospital I had a summer internship two weeks ago, in the words of my boss "We ought to close this fucking shack". He's lucky if there is an availivable anaesthesiologist and he's not managed by a first year resident.
>>101248907>>101249200What does he say?
Groenewegen is gonna go to jail over this
any news about the camera guy ?
>>101249501He is ok.
>Fabio's condition is very hard. There is a huge risk to life. It is a very severe craniocerebral trauma, it has a crushed palate. The situation with the respiratory system is the worst - Barbara Jerschina, Tour de Pologne race doctor said in an interview with the media. The fight for the life of Fabio Jakobsen, who had an accident at the end of the 1st stage, continues.
>>101249500Deserved This is completely different from doing whatever it takes to win
>>101247655>This is an criminel facttbf that sentence has meme potential
>>101249501>One of the judges present at the finish line also suffered as a result of the crash and was taken to hospital. Initially, information appeared that he was in the worst condition, but after several dozen minutes it was confirmed that Fabio Jakobsen was resuscitated. - The judge who had an accident as a result of this crash had his cervical spine secured. He had a head injury with a loss of consciousness. He is in the hospital - added Jerschina.
>>101249527Good, lucky motherfucker.
>>101249527At least one good news!
New thread >>101249557New thread >>101249557New thread >>101249557
>>101249467Oh great, fucking up with the barriers and a shithole hospital too. Great going there Poland
>>101249495Well Naesen said he always thought Groenewegen was an asshole, but now he knows for sure; this was in 2016 when Naesen was still a nobody and Groenewegen pushed him into the barriers in some 1.1 race (Naesen stopped sprinting, thankfully). They didn't even DSQ him over ithttps://www.procyclingstats.com/race/circuit-franco-belge/2016/resultEvenepoel tweeted just after the finish today "They should ban you for life.Goddammit, shame on you!!!" and then deleted it
>>101249605Thanks for the translation Belgianbro...
>>101249605Groenewegen is an asshole, and has always been. Typical Amsterdam cuntbag
>>101248414If youre drunk your body becomes very powerful against impact and crashes because of lack of muscle tension. Now I don't want to claim all Poles are drunks but chances are he was.
Polish tour really cursed huh, probably cancelled next year because barriers came completely apart
>>101247258Sagan has never been a pure sprinter though
Again, the spokesperson:>Patient is being operated at A&E unit by a team of orthopedists and oral surgeons. His respiratory and circulatory functions are OK, but his condition is considered to be bad. We need to wait
>>101250266>his condition is considered to be badStrong contender for understatement of the year.
>>101250360it's the medical lingo that i don't know how to properly translate. i'm guessing that it means his life is not in danger at the very moment, but if they don't do something quickly enough it might be.
>>101250452Fair. Thanks for relaying - didn't know it was your translation. That actually sounds like, mildly positive all things considered, that he's not in "he's basically already dead" state? IDK, grasping at straws probably.
>>101249011He got a long neck
So..when does Groenewegen go to jail for killing two people?
>>101190464Monkeys do not compete.Cycling is a white man's sport.
>>101223559Not a complete failure.But it is sad that he's the only talented guy of his generation and could not do more than nudge two monuments.Older Gen: Gilbert, Valverde, Boonen, Froome, Nibali, Van Avermaet, Cancellara, ContadorYounger Gen: Van der Poel, Bernal, Evenepoel, Van Aert, Pogacar, PedersenHis Gen: Sagan, Alaphillipe, Kwiatkowski? Seriously the weakest generation ever.
>>101254511Kinda wild ignoring 3 worlds in a row yet still putting Pedersen on the list
>>101249261Lifelong ban is what they should do.God damnit! Be ashamed!!!You should really learn dutch desu.World language.
>>101254533I'm not ignoring the 3 worlds.Sagan is the best of the generation 1986-1994.But he had so little competition there. It's not a diss on Sagan, it's a diss on everybody else Between 1986 and 1994. They rode in the shadow of the pre 1985 generation until 2 years ago and last year they already rode in the shadow of the post 1995 generation.Pedersen also had a #2 in Rvv, he's likely going to amass a great palmares.
>>101254533>>101255197If you're wondering why there are so many sub 23 year olds performing so well, it's not only that they are so good. It's in large part because the generation of 27-33 year olds are so bad.
