    Default 2020 TdF with spoilers.

    Hey, I feel like a wimp watching stage one and not riding in the rain today.

    I actually have high hopes for the Tour this year since I am so starved for sports. If today's weather is any indication, it is setting up to be a race fitting of 2020. I suspect the high mountain stages we are waiting for will have early season blizzards just in keeping with 2020 theme.

    Similar thought here Up-Doug. The weather is sure to get these gents.

    We are camping in the mtns. BUT I've got NBC-Gold setup and we plan to watch today.

    I went to set the PVR to record and found out that I need to pay a monthly subscription to Flo to be able to watch this for the next 4 years! All I can say is this sucks!

    So separate TDF thread or should we compile this in the 2020 race season (with spoilers) omnibus thread?

    Was it just nervous day 1 of TDF + pandemic anxiety + break from racing + [diesel on roads? ] + [fresh paint on roads?] ?
    I take it the climbs around Nice are mostly short but can be steep n twisty. Still dont understand how SO many crashes happened today.
    What do you guys think?

    Post-race they talked about how hot and dry it has been there for the past days/weeks. So I expect the water just floated all the accumulated oil and detritus and that made the roads completely different from training. And then all the anxiety as mentioned. Watching Lopez from Astana go straight off into a pole was a bit hair raising.

    From the post-race interview, the road was like ice, prolly from the reason Jorn mentioned already.

    Good finish and good on the Swiss rider for reeling in Alaphilippe after the initial attack.

    I must say I rooted a little for Marc Hirschi but he should have launched his sprint 2 seconds before Julian Alaphilippe. Well, he gained experience and confidence that is for sure.

    Adam Yates appeared to be very happy with third place. When Adam Yates goes to Ineos next year it will be easier to tell which twin is which.

    Anyone else notice that this time round they are doing disc wheel changes rather than going straight to bike swaps? Granted, there’s a power tool involved, but I wouldn’t call it slow!

    Spectacular timing and tough inside move next to the barrier for Caleb's win.

    shouldn't he be relegated for changing his line several times ?

    I think each time he was going around slower or slowing riders. And he didn’t appear to be impeding anyone.
