The real damage was done with the prologue which is where Andy lost so much time to begin with. I agree though that Frank was strong last year and would have been a great help to Andy.
But still, this is a different year! We’ve already have the unsafe route debate and race neutralisation redux - let’s hope we don’t go revisiting chaingate!

Edit: Can i ask that anyone wanting to talk about this does so via the comments and not by submitting a post? We really appreciate all interaction and thoughts but comments work better for this than multiple posts about what happened last year. Thank you very much!
