    There's some lively racing in the Tour of the Alps on now. Pinot and Pozzovivo in the break.

    Something funny going on with the Eurosport app. Eurosport 1 has disappeared at the moment so all I can watch is motorbikes or snooker! Seems intentional as it wasn't showing in the schedule this morning.

    Same, found an on-demand which I thought was the delayed version of today but it was the 2017 edition. Completely disappeared, but I can watch the Tour of Croatia :?

    Landa doing all the chasing on his own for the past 3km.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Not gonna be Dan Martin's day.

    Kwia takes up the chase to help Landa out.

    Serge Pauwels very attentive at the front.

    But if you select Tour of Croatia it's actually FW. Snafu from ES player

    Now Sky are chasing the gap is shrinking. Now 44 seconds.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Benoot now chasing hard for the peloton.

    Gap down to 38 seconds.

    Valverde loses his last team mate Landa.

    He will hope other teams will take him to the line.

    I suspect they will since high placings are worth it....
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    10km to go, 32 secs the gap.

    Landa's back in the bunch.

    What a save!

    6.4km to go, on the penultimate climb. 20 seconds the gap.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Nibali attacks over the top, after attacks in the peloton reduce the gap to 11 seconds.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Into a headwind, natch.

    Even he can't stay away, can he?
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    4km to go, Nibz has 20 seconds.

    Ja but far fewer team mates for the others now.

    Nibali caught behind the two other breakway riders, having been dropped in the descent. Haig and Schahamann.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Nibali with Kangart from Astana behind the two above.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Nibz caught at 1.2km.

    Schachmann playing games upfront.

    Here we go. On the Muur.

    No Valverde's day.

    Wellens and Alaphilippe.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Vanendered sorry!!

    Now Valverde goes, following Alaphilippe! But he can't make it!
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 53,381 Lives Here
    Alaphilippe.

    What a finish that was. Alaphilippe's beard from Valverde who never looked like getting there. Vandendert led out Wellens so well he took third, no idea if Wellens even held on to the top ten.

    Vandendert has history with this race and LBL.

    Quick Step decided that after a week off they should get back on it.

    Not gonna be Dan Martin's day.

    I sealed that the second I picked him for PTP.

    Sounds like a rare good edition.
