    My bet on him acting like an anchor as usual.

    When i worked in a bookies, I was known as the jinx. No surprise that the rider j backed doesn't have it.

    Sagan in all sorts of problems now. BMC get a man up to Gilbert group.
    Still a long way to go.. not heard Stybar mentioned yet either.. hoping he has a good race

    But Oss brings them all back.

    So, back to square one.

    Mads taking it into the next sector - sacrificed for Degenkolb. Rolf Sørensen far from happy.

    Degenkolb off the front, Lars Bak catches and passes him.

    Looking more and more like QS are all in for Twerpstra, wot with Stybar giving it out with 70kms to go and Gilbert already used as a hare.

    I know it's been mentioned a lot, but Sagan is way too upright on the cobbles. That side-on shot there, he looked like a sportive rider or something compared to all the guys he was with,

    You mean the shot where he just glided up the field to sit in 3rd wheel?

    Yeah, but he looked all wrong doing it :D

    A sportive rider on an e-bike then ;)

    Was plus 3 and one was Degenkolb, not looking like they're cooperating.

    Terpstra has been completely invisible so far, which should be ominous for the others.

    Word in the peloton:
    "Don't catch Stybar yet, 'cos Terpstra will go!"

    Naessen puncture.

    Oss goes for a jump.
    Can't really see that working, but better than using him as a carthorse.

    Oss attacking?!?
  • No_Ta_DoctorNo_Ta_Doctor Posts: 10,203
    Lars Bak going again. Super aggressive.

    Don't think he's passed his nightmare crash-bend yet though.
