I love how relaxed the QS hardmen are in the top shot - compared to the Caisse rider in the third - rule one, relax over the cobbles makes them easier...

Look at the second picture closely, what does the FDJ rider have on his fingers, tape?

...couple a' those guys seem to have tape on their fingers...

...notice in the third photo, the cofidis rider is using top mount 'cross' levers...

...& even though that is a relatively smooth section of cobbles, that's gotta be pretty serious after hours in the saddle...

Different points in the race. Everybody else in the third shot looks pretty strained too.

Use your brain.

"rule one, relax over the cobbles makes them easier"

Armchair genius. Fuck you.

I believe Ballan ran a single top-mount lever (rear brake) like he's done previously. Makes sense for cobble sections in groups.

Jeezus, Privateer, I think you forgot to take your Paxil this morning. Dude was just making some observations. There are more diplomatic ways to make your point.

P.S. Fuck you

One of the things that has been most enjoyable about our comments section has been the civility we enjoy here.

Let's keep it that way; we're chums here.

Roger that. Sorry, the "p.s." thing was meant without venom, and was intended to be humorously contradictory. But it came off as simply crude. My apologies.
