What Alex said and it feels like we’re watching another sequel in a bad movie franchise, but you can trust that data at least, and Dimension is parsing it in ways we’ve haven’t seen before.
Tour de France
In this edition of the the Tour, we see dangling gold chains early, during the TTT. They usually come out in the mountains, when the racers are climbing.
After a long week and getting Issue 26 out, taking today off, and riding this afternoon. For more on the Tour, besides the jewelry, see these tech articles

For our take on the Tour, as it happens, see this collection of tweets. Today while running an errand it was chaos with Stybar winning after a crash involving Tony Martin and Nibali. Such is the roulette wheel of a race and who’s got good luck that day. For a human interest story, Daniel Teklehaimanot made history being the first African to hold a jersey.
I have such complicated feels for this sport, but that was an impressive win…riding away from the pack. In his own words
I was so nervous. I don’t know how many watts I pulled. More than I ever did. Now I am so happy and a thousand thanks to my team. They supported me the whole week. Now I gave it back so I’m super happy.

Also noteworthy from the stage, Runkels!.
Chris Froome finished second to take the yellow jersey as Joaquim Rodríguez won the stage while two serious crashes caused the race to be temporarily stopped. The Tour video shows a high-velocity crash that took out a Cancellara, as well as Simon Gerrans, Dmitrii Kozonchuk, Tom Dumoulin, and William Bonnet. That’s many great riders out or hurt due to something as mundane as a touched wheel, something that happens could happen at Saturday shop ride. Two broken backs, broken collarbones, broken shoulders, broken wrists. The crash happens at 0.13. So what caused it? High winds, speed, and a touch of wheels.
