    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Not sure about allowing picks well after the breakaway has been established. Midday cut off not an issue for normal finish times (ie 4.30 pmish UK time), but not for stages finishing shortly after 3.00 pm.

    Still if them be the current rules.....

    Fair play. I'd have done the same (it was such an obvious stage for the break) but I was working at the time and past history tells me that I'd have doomed the break anyway. Were you the only scorer?

    I made my feelings on the matter very clear earlier in the week and the response was, them’s the rules. So...

    What was strange was insane-oerr picking Demare past the half way point. 🤔

    Once again, it didn't really help anyone did it... both times when I've tried to do it (once this Giro) the break hasn't even lasted to the end.
