For anyone here who cares, and I don't having lost any minor residual interest I may have had after Lance boy, this interested me:

It was badly timed nature break but if he had no choice...


My question is: given how competitive I understand these things are, he couldn't have pissed - or even crapped- in his pants while riding?

Cracking stage. Felt very sorry for Landa who was pipped by Nibali on the line having lead for most of the second half of the race.

Would have been a nasty ride thereafter!

And hard to be called Dumpoulin forever after ...

For the pissing part, they sometimes let their goods loose in times of need. Although, others in the group rarely go away happy about it. A sprinter called Hutarovich once misjudged the wind direction when relieving himself on the bike. Ended up giving the rest of the main bunch a warm shower. Van Avermaet, the Olympic champion, had already win gold earlier when he whipped out his Jimmy as he relieved himself while riding during the Belgian national road race championships and it got caught front on by the cameras.

Tom Boonen once shat himself during Paris Roubaix. Didn't win the race, but finished top 5 iirc. But that's generally uncommon, and a rider is filthy anyway after Paris Roubaix. Nacer Bouhanni knocked on the door of an RV parked roadside during the tour de France. Happy camper had a top shelf cyclist shit in his toilet.

One of the most graphically described dumps happen d in the 1986 TdF and is related in this book. https://www.amazon.com/Slaying-Badger-LeMond-Hinault-Greatest-ebook/dp/B0050OLH6M/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1495605573&sr=1-1&keywords=Slaying+the+badger

Starts with LeMond crapping in a team mates cap and finishes with him dumping on a pile of Hinault posters.

Dumoulin could have blown his chances by letting Quintana & Nibali get so close. They will be hard to keep at bay in the latter stages of the race. Nice to see Yates move into the top 10.

Tejay finally gets up for a stage win in a major. The fact that it has taken so long just highlights the big hole that was created for BMC when Cadel retired.

More controversy on this stage. Apparently Nibali & Quintana attacked while Dumoulin was taking a natural break although there seems to be different versions on the story. Maybe Dumoulin should go before he starts the day's ride.

It now appears that the controversy was probably just a storm in a tea cup created by the Dutch media.

Good to see Mikel Landa win a stage after two close seconds in recent days.

Meanwhile, Dumoulin is about 30 seconds behind Quintana & Nibali with 5 or 6kn to go.

Dumoulin finished a bit over a minute behind Quintana so the Columbian is the new race leader by 38 seconds. The final two days should be fascinating particularly when you consider that the last day is a Time Trial which should favour Dumoulin.

Time Trial tomorrow. Dumoulin should be able to make up the necessary time in order to win the Giro but you never know. He might stop halfway through to take a dump.

So close. Domoulin wins the Giro. Bloody brilliant. Quintana's double attempt doesn't look so good now.

He wouldn't have been the first competitive cyclist kept from first place by a slippery shit, but I'm glad he overcame that hurdle.

Seems Froome considers Porte to be his main opposition in the Tour.
http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/article/2017/06/02/porte-major-tour-rival-not-quintana-froome

However the Dauphiné which starts tomorrow & includes most of the GC riders should give an indication of where the threats lay.

Fuglsang scores a very narrow stage win over Porte, Froome & Aru. However, Porte is now in yellow by 39 seconds from Froome. Two mountain stages to go.
