    Ports you Tech Wizard, how do we make that a smilie? Appreciate as we're not admin we wont be able to embed it into the smilie list on here. But take it we can make it into a smilie else where and past the link?

    I think there needs to be more clarity from the rules. Most of the time the commisaires turn a blind eye. Either you are allowed to draft to get back on after a mechanical or you're not... its too much of a grey area at the mo.

    I think that's it's a difficult one to judge and to police. If you're in the convoy then it's impossible not to draft to some extent. Evidence is also sketchy relying on a commisaire being in the vicinity or it being caught on TV.

    I think it's also right that they keep in mind the race situation - if it's someone way back on GC and they are held up by a crash or a puncture I don't see the harm in letting them draft to get to the finish line.

    Dumoulin had to be penalised - it was blatant drafting, it was caught on camera and he is obviously a GC contender so the seconds matter.

    Wonder if the driver was punished - funny how he was going at the precise speed Dumoulin wanted.

    Ah, but he wasn't the only one, the day before there was Astana doing the same thing and they did not get punished. The camera bike was with them the whole time and even sounding its horn as they busted through the other cars.

    The cars had to pull over before a bend to let them chase back on and the Astana car took them right back to the rear of the bunch.

    Yeah it is a grey area, can you think of a time Sky did that though? When Froome had the mechanical last year and the peloton smelt blood, Michal K, Landa and the crew turned themselves inside out and got him back in.

    There's making your way back through the cars and then there's hitching a full blown lift, this was clearly taking it too far IMO.
