    The UCI should focus on the important; Making the sport even less attractive for fans should not be one of them. Gently offering a bidon for a fan to pick-up is a sign of empathy in a world of sports dominated by natural aggression. The new UCI rules (supertuck, puppy paws and bidons) seem to suggest the UCI has become less relevant while degrading the art of Pro-Cycling.

    The riders should add a new rule concerning themself by any dangerous move of a car or motorcycle that could harm the riders, all teams retiring from the race so the UCI should get on the bike and ride the remaining km to fill in the lost screen time on every channel where it's on!! If the UCI sees some humans as for trees as in "open nature" they really are overruled...

    Would the world's TV telecasters please find a way to interview riders without masks. Tennis and may other sports interview the competitors with a table of microphones with journalists a distance away. It's good to see GCM/Eurosport using a boom to socially distance but would be even better to hear the riders clearly and without a mask. Surely not a big ask for the fans.

    Yes let's disqualify our riders for littering. Nevermind all the energy is used for transporting the world tour from country to country. And let's also gloss over that at least 4 of the world tour teams are funded at least in part from oil and natural gas money.

    Hi everyone, firstly: it's amazing to be able to watch all races with GCN, absolutely love it and thank you! Secondly: the littering question is an issue and one that is to be reviewed by UCI for sure. And thirdly: what about Trek Segafredo - I haven't heard any comments about that team. Given the recent results they must be utterly disappointed by a 4th place finish without much of contribution throughout the race. Thoughts?

    The UCI 'have a bit of common sense?!' Fat chance. I loved the commentary late in the race when both Van der Poel and Asgreen tossed bottles to spectators in the final 10 km. So basically UCI says 'throw out the domestiques and let the top guys slide'. What a load of crap. The UCI needs a house cleaning and the rules need to be streamlined.

    To think, if only MVP hadn't pulled through at all when he was in the initial break and let QS do all the work. Seriously 4 QS riders and for some reason the riders with no other teammates in the break pull through? It was almost an exact repeat of E3....both him and Wout screwed themselves. Jumbo was a joke. Wout ended up isolated because they decided to chase down every attack in the first half of the race. By the time the real attacks started he had no riders left and had to make the jump himself. Ends up pulling through instead of letting DQS do the work like I said above for absolutely no reason. He flats and ends up back with the main group around 50k and instead of letting his team calmly but swiftly closing the (only) 2 minute gap until about 30k he just attacks again and ends up in no man's land. Jumbo and Wout need to learn how to work like a team.

    Ian Stannard threw a Team Sky bottle to me at the 2016 Tour Of Britain and even at my adult age, I was thriilled to get it! while visiting the UK My son in law got a Team BMC bottle. We were standing in a rural area and I think they were showing their appreciation that we would be there to see them ride by. It only promotes the sport, their sponsors and the riders earn new fans. UCI should be promoting that kind of interaction with the fans and not DQing a rider for an obviously good deed.

    It was a good race. Quickstep always is willing to let their big name set in and send a teammate who is strong down the road. We have seen it time and again. They are very cunning and also always very strong. Bravo. I agree with Chris Horner when he said Jumbo Visma burned itself out chasing everything and then Waut was isolated. That was nonsense for the DQ for the bottle. The fans are important to cycling. When I think of all the years they went along throwing all kinds of trash to the winds, now they DQ this guy? Nonsense. I enjoy your videos. Thanks. Pete

    Hi GCN, I understand territorial broadcast rights for races but they do not apply to the pre or post race analysis. Is it possible to provide these as stand alone programs on GCN+, even if it means a re-edit to remove video if that is a sticking point? Thanks too for your commitment to covering all aspects of the sport.

    That was a total disaster! How better to promote our sport. Shame on the officials.

    Re giving bidons to kid spectators usually I would agree but in a Covid world do we really want to encourage this even if the riders have been regularly tested and are in a bubble? Surely it sends out some bad messages about cross contamination and protecting one another

    A gift to a child is not liter, it is a gift. There is a spirit of the law and the letter of the law. Only the corrupt or incompetent follow the later.

    In the Tour of Flanders, with 2.3km to go MVP throws a bottle and then Asgreen does likewise. Carlton Kirby commented on this at the time. So UCI, explain why GVA isn't the winner.

      If I remember rightly, it was in one of the designated litter zones

    Sorry Daniel, but a major disagreement. We are in the age of COVID. How can the bottle discussion occur without its mention? It's an oversight in your mention of the incident, and obviously the reason for the bottle-discard ban. The expected response is "but the riders are tested..." The UCI simply cannot take the chance. It's not about littering.

    maybe they DQ'd him for the bottle because of the 'rona?

    Thankfully for Dan, your best presenting years are ahead of you because unlike sports, in presenting you get better with experience and age. Have a beer on me, on that note.

    where was the UCI looking when MVDP and Asgreen tossed bottles in the last few km's? No spectators there...
