Vermotte just losing the yellow, group out in front on Haytor containing Dumoulin and Dennis - Cummings and Gallopin just bridging across.

Quite an interesting final climb :)

    Apparently there's a Tony Dumoulin in the race :roll:

    Good stage this, nobody helping Cummings across by the looks of it.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 9,734
    Poels, Dennis and Dumoulin are now in front, Poels having a dig.

    Poels attack

    Poels takes it, Cummings into yellow - Vermotte just coming in, will be about 1'30"+ back when he gets to the line.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 9,734
    Vermotte 1'50" on Poels so I guess 1'35"-1'40" on Cummings.

    Vermotte looked farqued - nice to see people suffering on British climbs :D

    Excellent result for Steve - he's had a cracking year.

    How much can we expect Dumoulin to claw back in the ITT?

    Probably not quite enough. But it'll be close. Cummings is no mug in a short TT.

    ITV4 really slipped up putting those 2 on commentary, what with one making verbal mistakes every couple of minutes and the other saying "ya know" in every sentence. It's best watched with the 'Mute' button pressed!

    Just watched the highlights... that was driving me nuts!

    Cummings is class...

    I like Frankie Boyle better on the cycling than Mock the Week.

    Porter's Dummerlyn though?

    I have to watch sitting next to a pedantic Dutchwoman. Can you imagine the torture? :D

    Today's circuit race will be hard going. Should split things up quite a bit and I reckon could suit Cummings. I nearly said the stage will be super tough, I think I've been watching to many interviews with cyclists!
  • Err Hugh, it was Bovey Tracey they went through on the way to Haytor; was Stacey someone from your courting days?
