They Don’t Know

So ABC News [the American ABC] says that a Republican snitch told them that Trump is picking Governor Pence of Indiana as his running mate, but Trump told Fox News that he hasn’t made his “final, final decision” and other Republican snitches are saying that Chris Christie and Newt Gingrich are still in the running.

With the death of approximately 75 people in Nice eating up all the time on the news channels, Drumpf isn’t going to announce anything.

Update: Drumpf “tweeted” Pence, so it’s official if it’s in a twit’s tweet…

Le Tour 2016 – Stage 12

Tour de FranceMontpellier to Mont Ventoux

Distance: 184 kilometers.

The first two-thirds of this stage are totally flat, but then things get interesting. The first climb is the Cat 4 Côte de Gordes followed quickly by the Cat 3 Col de Trois Termes, then a short bit of level ground before the HC climb to a summit finish on Mont Ventoux.

Race officials have announced a change: “Due to the weather conditions forecasted by Météo France atop the Mont Ventoux with gusts of wind likely to exceed 100km/h, Tour de France organizers have decided to modify the finale of stage 12 in order to guarantee optimal safety conditions.”

Thomas De Gendt had a good day: he won the stage, the Polka Dots, and the Red Numbers.

Chris Frome did not: “What a final. In the final kilometre, the moto braked suddenly in front of us, and Richie [Porte ( AUS – BMC – 091 )], Bauke [Mollema ( NED – TFS – 061 )] and I crashed into it, and then the moto behind me ran over my bike and broke it,” Froome said. “I said to myself ‘I have no bike’. And I knew the car with my bike was 5 minutes behind on the road, so I need to run.”

The decision of the race officials was to award the riders their time before the accident, which kept Frome in Yellow. The fans are causing a lot of chaos this year.
