Tour de France 2020 :
Bradley Wiggins, winner of the Tour de France 2012, attacked his former manager Dave Brailsford, general manager of Ineos Grenadiers, who “was fired” in a football club.
A year after Egan Bernal’s victory in the Tour de France, and two years after that of Geraint Thomas, times have changed a lot for the Ineos team, formerly Sky, and which must now be called Ineos Grenadiers.After the 16th stage, which took place on Tuesday between La Tour-du-Pin and Villard-de-Lans, Richard Carapaz, second of this stage, is the first rider of the British team in the standings, and only points to the 14th place (+ 17’23 ”). Bernal is 16th, more than 19 minutes from the yellow jersey Primoz Roglic. For Bradley Wiggins, winner of the Great Loop in 2012 under the orders of Dave Brailsford, his former manager, who did not retain Chris Froome or Geraint Thomas, bears great responsibility for this failure.

“It’s difficult to stay at the top every year but they did it badly this year,” the Englishman told Eurosport UK. I don’t know what happened but the planning did not bring them success. Dave Brailsford was reportedly fired at a football club. “For the five-time Olympic champion,” it’s a team that doesn’t look at all like the Sky and Ineos before. Something is missing, like an experienced leader to make decisions. Having a Geraint (Thomas) in this team would have changed the whole dynamic. But in the next few weeks, we’ll know exactly what happened. “Because according to Wiggins,” if we could have thought that it was a decision taken jointly by Brailsford and the two riders (Froome and Thomas), they clearly wanted to participate and must have been annoyed. “A Brailsford who could be held accountable at the end of this Tour de France.

The GOP-controlled Senate will vote on Barrett’s nomination Monday evening and is widely expected to confirm her as the 115th justice on the nation’s high court.
The event would also take place just more than a week before Election Day. Trump and the GOP have seen the Barrett confirmation as something that could drive conservative support for the president, though Democrats believe it also amps-up their own voters.

The coronavirus pandemic, however, has spurred questions about the safety of such gatherings if health guidelines are not followed.
Several cases were tied to the Rose Garden ceremony during which Trump announced Barrett as his nominee in late September, where attendees were seen interacting closely together without wearing masks. Trump himself was diagnosed with the virus in early October.

"The very first event, while there’s a whole lot of connections that have been made with who was at the event and who came down with it, we’ve been able to look at that and track as many as three different areas where the virus actually infected different people within the White House," Meadows said. "So, it didn’t all come from that particular event."
“We’re tonight doing the best we can to encourage as much social distancing as possible. It will be outdoors if it goes off as planned right now,” Meadows continued.
Speaking to reporters in Allentown, Pa., Trump said the event would not be a “large event” but a “just a very nice event.”
