Impressive finish From Caleb - nice to see him finding his legs again.
Congrats to Stevo.

Shame we're all suffering from end of season fatigue & vuelta overlap. Was vuelta later this year (lympics)? I don't remember the ToB overlapping so much before.
I couldn't get much enthusiasm for the latter despite a decent start list.

    ToB has been pretty good I think.

    Good for Caleb - and my PTP :)

    I think the problem with ToB has been the coverage. It's amazing when you compare the highlights programme to the Vuelta one, produced by same channel but so so different. The ToB looks boring as if that's your only exposure to it. I watched everyday and went to the Brostol stage and couldn't have enjoyed it more but to a casual or non fan tuning in then I can see them being put of by the coverage prett quickly.

    I also think if the vuelta hadn't picked up so dramatically that the ToB would be getting much more attention on the likes of here as the racing has been enjoyable (if not necessarily vintage).

    Lotto Soudal's tactic was quite interesting at the end and very nearly paid off. Possibly would have been better had Greipel been able to follow the chasers' wheels though.
