German Championships 2016 Elite men road

    On time-trial stages, are there any rules about how long the slowest riders are allowed to take else risk being excluded from the Tour?

    • Dave


      On stage 13 the time cut was set to 25% of the winner’s time, and the slowest rider was 1:15 inside the limit.

      For the stage 18 uphill time trial it will be 33% of the winner’s time.

        Thanks Dave.

    The heading above says GC standings, but the results are for the stage 13 ITT.

      It’s true, it defaults to stage results, but if you click on the little yellow ball, it switches to GC standings.

        There we go – thanks Neal. I hadn’t noticed that feature before.

        • Neal Rogers

          Yeah, it’s not ideal. We had built up all the stage preview pages in June, before I realized there was no way around the default. I’ve questioned whether or not it’s worth having the results included in the previews — reviewing GC makes sense, stage results less so — but ultimately decided to keep them, even though a high percentage of folks probably have the same experience you did and only see previous stage results.

            I’m sure that the functionality changed at some stage. When the PCS was first added, a few years ago, I don’t think it had the click through (I could be wrong). Now that I know I can change it, it’s less of an issue. Is there scope to include an instruction adjacent to the ball for other nooks like me?

            I thought the nicest implementation would be a top ten of GC, and clicking on the list would take you to a view of the full dataset (so – show all riders, change for green, white or KoM).

            Maybe that’s just me though. Back to watching Fabian eat a sandwich.
