Le Tour Ethics

I’m now into my third year of following Le Tour and have a few opinions on riders’ ethics.

If you’re going for the points, then in my mind either you or your team must take a share of the load to get you into a position from where you can contest the points.

If you sit on the back wheel of a champion till the very last second then when you see the line you pounce and take the points, you are a fuckwit.

If you then complain about the quality of the lead out that you’ve just leeched off, or you try to coerce a champion into hunting down a breakaway after he’s carried your brother up a hill for 100ks+ then you are an oxygen thief.
