Will we have pink cards, at the Giro, and red at the Vuelta?... :D

Peter Sagan would have been put into solitary confinement in the UCI supermax.

2 cards in a stage race doesn't seem proportionate to 2 in a 1 day race. Maybe for grand tours it should reset on a rest day?

And Djamolidine Abdoujaparov would be in the UCI 'Center For The Criminally Insane'... :D

Given all he's done, for British Cycling, I think Chris Boardman was worthy of the step-up as well - he's been made a CBE, so next time should be a Knighthood.

meanwhile . .. OK to talk about Matteo Jorgenson and Dillon Gee?

Some real young north american talent. Jorgenson could realistically be at least the co-leader of one of the super-teams at the TdF. Granted, due to an injury to their primary yellow jersey contender and to Van Aert really not targeting the TdF, but Jorgenson stage race performances this year and the Puy de Dome stage last year makes a white jersey very possible. Top 5 would be very nice, but top 10 is more realistic.

the title of the link doesn't give away the content, so if you are planning on watching on video later, just avoid the link.

Interesting stat, from today's Tour coverage - since Pogacar and Vingegaard started racing each other, in the Tour (2021), that gives a total of 327 hours of racing. Pogacar is ahead by 1 minute 25 seconds...
