Cycling Bardet shameful but revengeful after Tour de France blow

first_img {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} Related News BELFORT, France (Reuters) – Romain Bardet was aiming at no less than overall victory on the Tour de France, but after only six stages the Frenchman has been left ashamed of himself and virtually out of contention.Second overall in 2016 and third in 2017, the 28-year-old AG2R-La Mondiale rider started the race full of ambition despite a below-par season and his limited time-trialling abilities.But Bardet, who has three Tour stage wins to his name, was convinced that aggressive tactics would see him cause havoc in the mountains.It fell flat, however, as he lost over a minute to defending champion Geraint Thomas in Thursday’s hilltop finish at La Planche des Belles Filles, where his team expected him to get into the groove after they lost ground in the team time trial.–– ADVERTISEMENT –– Cycling 09 Jul 2019 Cycling – First crack in Ineos armour as Thomas loses time Related Newscenter_img Cycling 10 Jul 2019 Cycling – Mountain training will pay off for Thomas says Ineos team boss Overall, Bardet lies 26th, 2:08 adrift of Thomas.”There was a lot of disappointment yesterday, even a feeling of shame towards his team mates and towards himself,” his sports director Julien Jurdie told reporters before the start of Friday’s seventh stage to Chalon sur Saone. “Shame is a word that he used. He made huge sacrifices to be here, we know how committed he is.”For all the swashbuckling talks at AG2R-La Mondiale, the French team seem far from fulfilling their ambitions.”I’ve got the feeling that I was not at the required level after all the hard work I’ve done,” Bardet, who has not won on the World Tour stage in two years, told reporters.”I felt like I was a spectator of the race. The legs did not respond like I wanted them to, it’s not a good sign.”Bardet, however, has a never-say-die attitude, even if his recent form and the time he has already lost suggest he will not make it onto the podium in Paris.”I feel revengeful. I want to race with my guts. Yesterday was a big setback but there are a lot more stages left. I came for more than this. It’s just starting,” he added.

The operation comes after the July 5 incident where a local dive instructor and two tourists from China were killed by a blast from a fish bomb at a dive site off Pulau Kalapuan in Semporna.ACP Pajeri said the authorities also enforced various laws, including the Maritime Shipping Ordinance, during the operation which also checked the Sem­porna town fish market.All those arrested and boats seized were taken to the Semporna marine police base.“We will be continuing our actions to wipe out fish-bombing activities in the Semporna waters,” he said, adding that continuous checks in the market would help reduce the incidents of bombed fish being sold.

Burke,What people want and expect their president to do is to restore an open direct dialogue with them" Such criticism has since vanished from Gorbachevs public remarks much as it has from the rhetoric of many of Putins former critics The annexation of Crimea sent the Presidents approval ratings soaring to record highs of well over 80% this year driven upward by a jingoistic sense of pride even as Western sanctions eat into the value of the Russian currency and push its economy toward recession Gorbachev now seems willing to forgive Putin for his authoritarian tendencies as long as he works to restore the "great power" status that Russia lost "There are still elements of autocracy of authoritarianism" in Russia today he tells TIME "But Ill say this The manual control of authoritarianism was also needed to overcome the situation that our friends our former friends and allies created for Russia by pushing us out of geopolitics" MORE: Russia’s fifth column The new East-West divide does evoke a sense of foreboding in Gorbachev In particular Putin’s recent warnings that Russia is a "nuclear power" and that foreigners would be wise "not to mess with us" all feel like reminders of the arms race that kept the world on the edge of a catastrophic war as Gorbachev climbed the ladder of the Soviet Communist Party to become its last General Secretary "People are talking again not only about a new Cold War but a hot one” he says “Its as if a time of great troubles has arrived The world is roiling" But that does not mean that Putin should back down in the face of Western sanctions The man who pursued reforms at home and peace talks with the West in the late 1980s now feels it must be the Americans who learn a sense of humility toward Russia and stop resisting its rightful role as a global power "Its hard to belittle the Russians" says Gorbachev "We know our worth" And if the US does start to seek a new thaw in relations with Russia he has a fresh bit of advice to offer Putin going forward: "I learned that you can listen to the Americans but you cannot trust them" he says "When they get an idea to do something theyll turn the world onto a different axis to get it done" Still as our interview winds down Gorbachev seems to snap back into the mode of reconciliation that won him the Nobel Peace Prize a quarter century ago "We have to return to dialogue We have to stop this process" he says warily "We have to return to what we started with at the end of the Cold War" But so far he admits the world is moving in the opposite
