    Don't feed it Joelsim.

    Is it a patient?

    No but I quite like them to leave through lack of attention.

    57km only today due to adverse weather. Could be nutty.

    As in the final 57km or a random 57km chunk of the stage?

    Because Talansky will want bonus seconds, with one climb it will be fast, Astana only really have Scarponi to help MAL.

    Final 57km of the stage. 2 intermediates, one long climb and descent.

    Scarponi is plenty for one climb. Nobody up the road. Straight GC head-to-head. Lots of faux attacks and eyeballing eachother.
    Seems to me like Talansky's best chance is for the sprint.
    He's useful in that department.

    So crazy attacks from the GC top 10 or play it safe like a normal stage?

    G well off the back already as BMC start pushing the pace.

    Colombia on a huge high, atm.
    Talansky snatches 5th from the jaws of the podium. :oops:

    Lopez is a superstar in the making in the Nairo mould.

    Was hugely impressed with him today for a 22 year old. Massive talent.

    Only picked up on this from INRNG's comments section. But apparently Danny van Poppel was never relegated after his sliding around the corner on Stage 4. So you can all wind your outrage back in.

    Stage 4 results have him finishing 26th - same time as the bunch after the leading three. http://www.tourdesuisse.ch/en/tds-2016/results/4-stage/
