How many kilometers into the race will Sep suffer his first mechanical or chute?
Bonus question: how many KM into the race will he suffer the chance ending mechanical or chute?

He was barely out of the neutral zone when he tasted tarmac in Flanders.

    hahahah poor bloke it must be getting to his self belief by now. He needs to learn how to win.

    I reckon 5k before the trench when it speeds up, hell have an off and then spend the subsequent 5K the cobbles and the next ten k chasing back on.

    Hahah I think it’s more likely he takes out Luke Rowe 15k from the end in a group of five. The other three are all quick step :)

    About 5km in and he's having his saddle fiddled with.

    Thomas called for the team car too.

    I'm claiming a half point.

    Thomas made it all the way to the first sector, I'm impressed
