POLL: Majority for cobblestones on tour, Nys agrees: ‘Part of cycling’ | a trip

The stage did Arenberg a lot of damage in the peloton on Wednesday. It was impossible to keep up with the number of falls at one point in time. Several riders exited the fray, battered. However, the majority of Sporza surfers are professionals, and Sven Nys and José De Cauwer see no problem with that. Commentator Christophe Vandegor has a comment.

De Kauer: “No one was against the start”

José De Cauwer joins the majority of Sporza surfers who believe cobbled riding has its place in the Tour de France. “We knew before the tour started that there were cobblestones. No one was against it,” it sounds sober.

“Every year is not necessary, but for me there might be a cobblestone stage on the tour every two to three years. It also didn’t puncture or fall on the cobblestones.”

“There was also one person who was driving between his fingers in his nose: Tadej Pogacar. I don’t know if it would be easier on Pogacar now, because now we have a different kind of race. Do something.”

“At Jumbo-Visma, they have the tactical prowess and now they have to start racing more openly. They can actually put Vingegaard on the wheel of the Pogacar and let Roglic do it. Roglic can set up a track with O’Connor and the others who have fallen behind. To ride the race.”

Vandegor: “Not tense for the coming days?”

Commentator Christoph Vandegor also loves the cobblestones, but he has a comment. “I think it’s great to watch,” he says. “Paris-Roubaix is ​​my favorite besides Milan-Sanremo.”

“I love those cobblestones, but in a Tour de France the potential drawbacks are no more than months of training and investments at the heights.”

“The ASO is aiming to have a scene with such a stage and they’ve got that too. But that scene one day might be obliterated by the lack of tension in the coming days, because of that cobbled ride.”

I think riding on gems is part of cycling.

Sven Ness

“I don’t quite agree with that,” replies Sven Ness. “I think cobblestone riding is part of cycling.

“Obviously this isn’t done very often, but on other big rounds we also see gravel stages appearing or going up to close to 3,000m on a gravel strip. Is this fit within a single lap?”

“Everyone knows in advance that this stage is in the Tour. If Pogacar loses 20 seconds, we are all saying that this stage may have created an opportunity to prevent Pogacar from winning the Tour.”
