let's discuss the races here, where can I find the profiles of the road courses? How steep and long are the climbs? Surely Froome would have to rid of Valverde, Nibali, and punchers like Alaphillipe, is it hard enough to do so?

awesome finish
got back what i f*cked up on the cricket
but a little ambivalent
given van vleuten's terrible fall
johansson was gaining on VDB near the line
maybe she lacked her explosiveness initially
good course but dangerous on the descent
hope the other dutch girl is OK

Health and safety is dominating most sports .....but we have road cyclists descending in shade covered rain forest with deep rain gullies ....not my idea of an acceptable course.
Hopefully the dutch girl is fine , it was a nauseating fall .

And that was after spending the whole race hoping a Brit would not win .

The climb was terrific to watch .
Report CJ70 August 8, 2016 3:48 PM BST
Thank god there was good news on Van Vleuten last night. I was in floods of tears when she went down fearing the worst.

How she came out of that with only 3 fractures and concussion I'll never know. Hope if nothing else it becomes a lesson not to f*ck about with dangerous descents.
Report johnnythebull August 8, 2016 4:49 PM BST
very brave girl
and very positive on social media
given the gravity of what befell her
such a shame it denied her almost certain gold
CJ70..don't think it's a case of 'effing about'
these guys are racers
sometimes being too cautious can be dangerous
just got unlucky as did Nibali and henao the day b4
maybe they could or should have removed those horrendously dangerous concrete kerbstones for the race
could easily replace them after
wouldn't have prevented the falls per se
but would've mitigated what could've been a fatality
Report bb66 August 9, 2016 11:56 AM BST
wish her all the for a full recovery, and you have to blame organisers for lack of safety measures, almost a little stonewall aside the road, and probably a layer of tarmac put on the concrete road like it was on uphill section, so it was also dangerous to reach the edge of the road. The crash was caused by a riding error though, it looks to me the way she went into this bend from the inside she wasn't aware this was a rather sharp turn, she had no chance at that speed.
