Re: 2019 Tour de France

Today was what I expected it to be. A flat uneventful stage that led to a sprint finish, and Caleb Ewen winning that sprint just edging out Dylan Groenewgen. Very little happened GC wise, but I have a feeling that will change over the next few days. A few notes from today. 1. Nairo Quintana was invo...

None of that changes the reality that AA is overstaffed compared to its peers, and that the model it currently embraces is labor heavy/low return.
