    Stage 7 surely...

    The only update of vague note is that the Cannondale bus has broken down

    You had me in a PTP panic for a moment!

    Little Flower has wilted - Team Sky clearly not looking after him.

    Ok fine, let's be specific. He's got pain in his lower back.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 16,256
    Which side of his lower back?

    Bonifazio abandon

    Break about to be caught
  • Kirby being particularly irritating and stupid, today.

    Taaramae take out by the race director's car.

    FFS... though Katusha tweet suggesting it was a team director's car... and he is ok.

    Being set up nicely for the Meersman show. I'm really amazed that no other sprinter was tempted.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 16,256
    As I write that still 18s gap with 2.8km to go.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 16,256
    Crash apparently involving Contador
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 16,256
    Jonas Van Genechten wins the sprint catching LL Sanchez and S Clarke on the line. Perfect timing.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 16,256
    Contador with rips in clothing all over the place.

    Bonus seconds for Valverde. Think Bennati was 2nd.

    Contador really isn't very good at staying upright these days is he!
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 16,256
    Gilbert 4th with Meerman letting down some pro tour pundits in 7th.

    It's like in Space Jam where the aliens (Froome) steal all the basketball ability from the NBA players (Contador).

  • FDJ rider nudges Tosh VdS who touches Contador who goes down and into the barrier.
    Many riders fall on top.

  • with less 1 kilometer to do, Contador was in front with 2 teammates, he chose to drop, the other riders are arrived behind him in a turn full gas.

    Oo, you nicked that from Ian Wright in Euros footie punditry you did. Recall was after the Iceland game. Damn fine line though :D
  • dish_dashdish_dash Posts: 5,331
    Apparently it was a Cofidis team car which took out Taaramae. Bouhanni's influence clearly spreading.

    I absolutely did not nick it!!!

    I watched more or less none of the euros.

    I now feel bad about how funny I found my own joke...
