Now I don’t claim to be a medical expert of any sort but what the hell were the riders thinking?Rain and cold compromises the immune systems,Ok. If they were not up to the challenge of a 258 km course they should have just said so and not messing the organisers about. Eventually the course was trimmed to 123 km with riders being taken to starting point by vehicles. So much for alpha male sports. Good win by Josep though,take nothing away 💪.
