Tour Down Under, Stage 5: Looking for the Top
When I titled this piece I didn't know just how prophetic I was being. As they approached the banner that had marked the KOM points line in every previous stage, De Gendt motioned for Dlamini to go ahead and claim the points. After apparently giving Dlamini enough points to secure the jersey, De Gendt pressed on crossing the line at the top of the mountain (that would be the finishing line next time up) first. It turned out that was where the KOM points were awarded placing Dlamini second over the summit. It may not effect the final destination of the jersey, but it shouldn't have happened.
