I know a certain amount of trade team logos are allowed now but thought they really weren't supposed to be "front and center" so to speak. What are the rules on this?

I didn't know Suzuki even sponsored a cycling team; do they?

What's the connection between a Japanese motorcycle company and the Italian National cycling team??

Thanks

I think there is some connection to Suzuki being a main sponsor of the WC(the 'race' cars, the VIPs and race director, etc, were all Suzukis) and the race being in Italy, and the Italian team being sponsored...by Suzuki..don't know what it is but...

BUT 2 of the BIG 3 sponsors of this race in Italy, were Japanese companies..Shimano and Suzuki(and Mapai)...:)

I saw Roglic took his turns in the pull to try and catch Allap.

Wout said in the post-race interview that he believed his team mate (Roglic) was already at his limit in the final kms and did everything he possibly could but ultimately, in the end, what really happened was the strongest rider of the day won.

Yeah, same. If you see pictures of him on the climb and after, he looked cracked, like worse than anything I saw at the TdF except the TT.

And as Alaphilippe attacked, WVA ... sat down.

End of controversy.

WvA just didn't have it when the move came. It's convenient for the Belgium cycling ecosystem to look for a scapegoat, and Roglic will do nicely. They're aghast that the Dutch took two golds.

I'm not sure what the Suzuki angle is either but Suzuki has sponsored the Italian team since at least 2018. The logo used to be smaller though.

The Dutch also hold the elite CX jerseys ... I hadn't thought of how that might feel for Belgian fans.

Check the link in Clean39T’s post above.

The NBC Sports YouTube page also has a condensed version of each race.
