Oops, but he won stage 6? If memory serves...he had a rest day where others didn't.

Statistically and inevitably someday a stage will be won (first second and third) by people who all dnf'd earlier in the race. How lame will that be ? The media typically only reports on the top three each day. The guys competing fight hard for this media exposure to further their careers and please their sponsors....having guys who already lost the race "steal" the limelight is...well....lame

For amateur rallies I totally get it, but for competitive races with the best guys in the world competing....I strongly disagree with it

PS...I am a huge Helder fan ( ) was just using him as an example
