So I’m watching the AToC and Remi Canagna is 7:30 up on the Peloton w/40K+ to go and he’s climbing like a demon. Really impressive stuff. But holy f-k! I shit you not, he is the worst descender I’ve ever seen. Not for a pro...for anyone!!!!! Phil and CVdV are snickering. He’s death gripping the brakes and setting up wrong on almost every corner. Those weren’t my words. CVdV was even questioning if Remi understands basic Physics. Oof-a. Thankfully he’s back on the flats, cuz that was truly awful to watch.

Agreed I was gasping at every corner wondering why the second place rider wasn't gaining gobs of time with that sloppy descending. Their heckling of him was perfect.

Is Dumoulin’s injury (resulting in his abandonment) going to impact his chances at the Tour?
Not sure, but it does hurt our chances of seeing him poop on the side of the road and the GC leaders attack while he does so.

Does TeeJay's mishaps further make him the Nickelback of cycling?
