I knew I should have stuck with the danes.
Mads is in the break.

Ugh, if Phinney goes out like this I'm gonna be pretty pissed.

Damn Ferrari caused it.

I've had the winner all three days at least... but not much else today, and just feel awful for Phinney.

Does Phinney get the same time, even if he's taken by ambulance at this point?

(I realize this is splitting hairs, but I'm wondering if he still gets the GC points)

Phinney out i think, Cav is a lucky boy, Demare just missed taking his head off, someone bunny hopes over him aswell

If he hasn't crossed the line under his own steam, then he's out and i think he crossed it in the ambulance

Pretty poor from ferrari

Broken ankle for Phinney?

and nope he has to cross the line by himself with his bike

and as fantasy goes that was pretty rubbish again!!! and now looking like an enforced change taking phinney out

From Cycling News "The provisional results have listed Taylor Phinney as the maglia rosa, so he has made it across the line, but it remains to be seen if he will be able to continue in this Giro after that fall."

But I suppose they don't know if he crossed in the ambulance or not.

Question from a layman - what happens in this situation with Ferrari? Will he come in for any punishment, or is it just seen as part of the racing?

If Phinney crossed in the ambulance then is that a Welshman in the Pink Jersey? Not the way he would've wanted it, but chuffed for Thomas all the same if thats the case. Gutted for Phinney.

Ferrari could well be disqualified too .... seen people thrown out for less!

(Remember Hushovd v Cav in Inter Sprint TdF?)

I wouldn't say it was poor from Ferrari, He was ahead of Cav, moving for position to get his sprint going. Its the sort of thing Cav likes to moan about but does himself all the time

Really?? People saying Ferrari should be punished?

Thats a racing incident, its not mirror, signal, manoeuvre in racing, it is what it is

its the danger of the move, its not a slight deviation its a violent movement...in my book it was pretty poor.
To me it shouldn't matter if he was ahead, he should be more aware before making such a dramatic move.

Same as Rosberg in the F1 last week

From cycling news 2 mins ago - Taylor Phinney is back on his feet and retains his overall lead.

So, with Phinney out, I would say BMC no longer favorites for the TTT. Gotta be one of four teams, right?

Garmin
Sky
BMC
Green Edge

Who you got?

By the way, the unsung hero here is Elia Favilli who bunny-hopped Cavendish when he was spread eagle on the ground. If not for that we may be having an entirely different conversation!

An extra 10 points as last man home? Think I will axe him though and risk having no BMC riders

Well he's Italian, so dont count on him being punished  3

But to me, its racing, his move was ok, he had more speed, you can't just get up to speed and then stay behind someone slower, you'd cause a crash, so yes his move may have caught out Cav, but Cav could have moved aswell, like everyone has to when he swings round people, Cav didn't move at all

Yeah that was a great move, bunny'd right over him, then his team mate slammed right into Cav. I can see it being the end of his race aswell, not many more flat stages left and if he's got a knock, he'll be out to recover for TdF

Favilli ... superb bike control  13

Did he use Cav as a ramp or just clean jump over?!

I think your dislike of Cav is affecting your judgement.

Hard to tell but it looks clean like he didn't even touch him.
