    Sagan probably needs to move teams to get the support he deserves.

    That was what he was moving from canondale for.

    What did he expect joining a team with a main GC contender?

    Damn can't argue the effort.

    That's why he moved to Saxo. I think the problem is that it's just not that easier to win

    Very impressive win - congratulations!

    Superb job from Sagan - not a climber but rode most of the climb faster than any 'sprinter' ever could, and rode it from the front. Brilliant descent, great effort. Lots of excitement for the fans.

    Bardet trying to jump out of the GC group, Valverde closing it down

    Barguil attacking now, Sky take up the pace behind

    Contador going

    Now Nibali
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Cannot believe how some of these GC guys are still hanging in there. Unreal stickiness.

    Oh hello Poels...

    Nibali's attack is unreal, off another planter, he must be heavily doping.
    'Performance analysis and Froome not being clean was a media driven story. I haven’t heard one guy in the peloton say a negative thing about Froome, and I haven’t heard a single person in the peloton suggest Froome isn’t clean.' TSP

    Carlton Kirby says there's a GC battle developing (as we go into the Alps). Oh really?

    Giant rider SOO nearly clipped the central reservation there!
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Sky lackies on the front. Go go go Nibali.

    That paint job on nibali's bike looks like something off a hardtail from about 1995.

    Valverde going off now
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Valverde has a beautiful kick.

    Valverde goes!

    Froome doesnt have to take too many risks to hold onto either Nibali nor Valverde - plenty of time and mountain top finishes to come.
  • frenchfighterfrenchfighter Posts: 30,642
    Three Sky in the front group. All other teams have one.

    FFS knocked off by Barguil, G has zero luck.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 9,166
    Hope G's OK, that looked pretty unpleasant.
