STAGE 13 TRACKING
STAGE 13: VILLA CARLOS PAZ > ROSARIO
Connection 519km | Special Stage 180km | Total 699km
Aspiring winners will certainly be those who find the 180km of the day’s special section the most difficult, designed with twisty, undulating routes, faster sandy and rocky sections… leading to significant levels of stress. For most of the others, the 699km to be covered before reaching the podium in Rosario will be a relief. To be enjoyed without moderation…
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
Watch the Tour de France every year and you'll see mechanics adjusting bicycles while hanging out the door of the support car with the rider still on the bike. Guess what? Occasionally a rider goes down and gets seriously hurt. Hasn't stopped them from doing it.
If it was a non-team car they were doing this with, I'd be outraged, but what the team does as their course of business is their business. As they say, hindsight is 20/20. Sure, they probably should have been going slower, but they probably did this every day of of the race. Other teams are probably doing the same thing.
If Peterpecker can get gas because there was no clear rule against it, then Robby and team can do this until there is a rule against it.
I just want one good news. please, somebody,. tell us something positive, a positive fact.
Did mine two years ago, makes you feel great!!
