    Relegated to 5th and rightly so.
    He did give an interview after saying he'd seen the TV images and wanted to apologize to Hirschi. He didn't realize in the moment that he'd hindered or endangered him and it was a mistake.
    With his premature celebration being a second mistake, which never happened to him before in his career and which he will make sure won't happen again.

    Followed by more apologies and stating that he thinks it's totally fair that he got relegated to 5th place.

    I watched that on bt player. It's interesting & well worth a watch.

    Mostly due to utterly how unrepentant he is about it all! 😃

    He's in the Trump category for me, can't stand listening to him, can't stand listening to what he is doing now. The sooner we let/help him disappear from current matters the better.

    Watching it now actually. Heís a massive fucking asshole, but a tiny part of me admires his will to win. Dislike him for his personality rather than the systematic doping.

    Donít have any qualms about him doping, everyone was/is at it and itís still an incredible achievement to do what he did - the bullying, threats and intimidation of other riders and press was far worse though, unforgivable

    Yup. I don't care about anything else he did, this is what I judge him on as a human being.

    Evil cunt.

    Still couldn't bring himself to apologise to the Andreu's for his treatment of them when asked either. That bit was very revealing.

    Such a shame for Geraint. :-/

    It's a stupid accident as well, just happened to hit a water bottle.

    It's all the rage since I did it!

    On the Giro, it's all turning into a bit of a farce.

    Cant believe a copter wiped out some riders (via advertising hoardings) *again*, last time being a few years ago in the Vuelta.

    Alaphillipe gets his first win in his WC jersey. Almost celebrated early again.

    Brabantse Pijl? I was watching the miserable conditions in the Giro. Good result, though Yates is really struggling. I think James Knox could reach for a top 10.

    Yes, he won Brabantse Pijl.

    In other news ... Paris Roubaix is 2 weeks away.

    I canít quite get into the Giro, partly the lack of contenders but mostly the fact that Iíve fucking hoovered every race possible since September. I was so giddy at having racing to watch to begin with I would watch all 250 kilometres 😁

    All Iíve the classics though. Isnít it WvA and VdP in the same race this Sunday?

    Yea, Amstel getting cancelled means Ghent-Wevelgem has a pretty stacked field.

    I'm watching the Giro highlights on quest, but am struggling too. It's really not as engaging as the tour coverage at all.
