Unsung heroes: Commissaires

Sure, we may not always like what they have to say. Like when they cancel a race because of light drizzle, won’t give us a lap out to catch our breath (sorry, I mean repair a mechanical), or make us ride an extra lap at the death of a race for no good reason, thus throwing our entire race plan into chaos. But whether we’re WorldTour pros or weekend hacks, we simply can’t race without them. Thank you, Commissaires.

(Besides, when they relegate you for nearly causing a 23-rider pile up in the final sprint, maybe you really did nearly cause a 23-rider pile up in the final sprint?)
