Time passes so quick!

Already completed stage 4 and in the Loire

Kasper Asgreen (Den) is currently leading the overall .

Chris Lawless took the stage yesterday and is second GC

Mountains not until stage 7 this year - and even then not as severe as previous years - so maybe not a climbing specialist this year?

Looks lumpy - but 1 metre difference between start and finish

  • looked an interseting day yesterday - a three man break - 2 Belarussians and an Austrian that finished with a 3.50 advantage over peloton (another Belarussian 9th) so thatch 3 in the top 10!

    One Belarussian gets the satge - the Austrian - Gamper - takes GC - and the other Belarussian is 2nd on GC 1.23 back

    Nelson Powless is in 9th Dont know too much about others this year
    Madouas is riding for FdJ and looks in a reasonable position and looked good at L'Ain

    Bernal (just won Sibiu Tour), Sivakov (just won Valle d'Aosta Mont Blanc, won Baby Giro), and Hindley (3rd in Baby Giro) are supposedly the favourites

    Six stages of nine into the race and positions 5 to 95 on GC are still on the same time. A little variation wouldn't hurt.

    Odd that Eurosport were doing live coverage of the early stages and then for the latter there don't even seem to be highlights available.

    This came right through our village on Saturday but I was away doing the bloomin' airport transfer! *grumble grumble*
    We're in danger of confusing passion with incompetence
