  • I like the way that Rossetto keeps cropping up in races. He is like an amateur in the pro ranks if that makes sense. He was only taken on by Cofidis last year at 28 years old and was really just riding French cup races at continental level before that. He seems to get into some good moves and is consistent. Cofidis sent him to the Vuelta last year and he was in a top 20 position when he DNF'd due toa crash on an ascent ?? with Corteille (fdj)

    Hope he make s the Tour team - he must do.

  • not much fire as 5 riders from top teams and no one to chase! and a 5 .30 min gap
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 16,106
    Things have certainly warmed up now.
    35kms to go and attacks are going in all over the course.

    What was that about Bouhanni? Did he get the kicking he deserved in the hotel last night?
  • ProssPross Posts: 25,360
    Slightly better route that the UK champs.
  • ProssPross Posts: 25,360
    Big move by Allaphillippe chasing after the front group and now Bardet having a go too.
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 16,106
    Alaphilippe engages warp drive. Bardet trying to Klingon. :wink::lol:

    Alaphilippe launches a second time.

    The strength in depth in this race is incredible. Loads of riders who this sort of terrain suits down to the ground. Gallopin or Alaphillipe for me.
  • ProssPross Posts: 25,360
    Vichot takes it from Gallopin and Guillermoz.
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 16,106
    Excellent last 40kms or so.

    I like how they organised it to finish early so people could watch the football, and by the time they tuned in France were 1-0 down!

    Bouhanni needs to go back to the sport of boxing. Clown!

    Liked Ned Boulting's comment that this race was like watching a breakaway full of all the usual breakaway riders chasing a breakaway full of all the usual.....
