Cycling fans probably read about the Giro riders protesting the safety of the course on Stage 9. The usual “just-race-your-bike-mannnnnn” morons predictably came out of their hospital beds to criticize what was a smart decision on the peloton’s behalf. The Giro director idiotically blabbered,
“This is not doing the sport any favors. Do we have to cancel all the dangerous races in cycling? Do we cancel Amstel Gold Race, Liège-Bastogne-Liège? I hope that the riders have made their point and we can return to the spectacle after the rest day.”
I could waste my time and yours with a refutation of this nonsense. A picture does better here.
Umm, that’s not okay.
