    Bernal abandons before Stage 17

    Pity we wonít see Bernal on the Cote de Loze but he is not in great shape by all accounts.

    In the thick of a series of posts about each stage of the TdF, all with
    "Spolier Alert" in the title, you felt the need to not only post news about a stage in your very own thread, but to announce said news in the title. Congratulations on winning the obtuse poster award. Idiot.

    Bernal abandoning is a spoiler ? Anyone watching the stage live or recorded would have been told Bernal had abandoned before the stage started

    Donít be a moron

    Didnít we go they this last year when a GC contender abandoned before a stage and people complained about a spoiler? Was that when Froome broke his leg?

    To me it's a big spoiler that shouldn't be in thread title... please be mindful in future. Per sticky at top of sub-forum.

    Yeah, it'd be the first news in the broadcast, but some of us would rather hear it for the first time from Phil and Bob bantering than seeing it in the forum thread list.

    Stuff from 5AM on weekdays just isn't watchable for a lot of us until the evening.

    It's true it didn't happen during the stage... anyhoo whatever.

    And yet here I am, TdF on DVR, not having read anything on social media, and I come to find out from someone who felt the need to start a thread about it in a forum. Sorry you're unable to see where you're in the wrong here, I'll let it go from here on in.

    FWIW, I don't think it's a spoiler. Had it happened during the race I would think otherwise but prior to the start? Cool with me.
    In reference to the Assault on Mt Mitchell...
