    The landscape on this stage is truly stunning!

    Truly Euroofficeparkesque.
    Correlation is not causation.

  • c'mon - throws hands up in rabble rousing manner to little avail

    Stage 2 is live on ES, but seems rather dull.

    3 riders from pro conti teams in the break (AquaBlue, Direct Energie and Vini Fantini), 1'24" lead with 64km to go. The peloton keep easing off to keep the gap out.

    Zzzzzzzz

    Good job we had the Dauphine! The only fact so far is that break contains my favourite named rider - Perrig Quemeneur
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Albasini's attacked for some reason but nobody cares.
  • Fact: Sigg bottles are manufactured in both the start and end towns today as the stage starts and finishes in the same town

  • Railside - Burger & Kebab
    Bahnhofplatz 75, Frauenfeld 8500, Switzerland

    Kebab opportunity for riders not that bothered about the race after this stage (don't forget the mint yoghurt)

    The interest is strong for this race.

    Guess I'll just go and get the result from cyclingnews or summat
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”

    @DrHeadgear

    The Vikings are coming!

    Some of us have jobs to go to!

    Looks like a break of 2 remains, Juul Jensen has attacked and bridged up to someone else who was in the break.

    Just put eurosport on but it's adverts
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    There we go, Juul Jensen is now with the leaders..

    27km to go and 1'21" the break. Looks wet.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Gap's tumbling down now, 48s with 25km. BMC setting a fast pace.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Break caught, 9km to go.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Goncalves attacks, Demare looking unhappy
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Sagan comfortably about 5th wheel, I reckon it'll be easy for him.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Sagan has attacked, 5.9km to go. Followed by Matthews, Kelderman and Wellens
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Bet that dropped a few more... There's another Sunweb up there now, Matthews looks on good form
  • No_Ta_DoctorNo_Ta_Doctor Posts: 9,466
    Actually got home in time to veg in front of this for a few km.

    Sagan brought back, they're now on a wet descent.

    Kristoff dropped, then got back on, I reckon too knackered to win from that now.

    Sagan and Matthews now for the finish is my bet.
  • No_Ta_DoctorNo_Ta_Doctor Posts: 9,466
    Chris Anker Sørensen specualting what he'd do if he had Sagan's legs for one day :-D

    Søren Kragh attacks, Danish commentary excited.

    Sagan wasnt trying to get away, just shell the other sprinters (well maybe he was initially, but Matthews was right on his wheel the whole time).
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Vichot trying something
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 8,072
    Colbrelli, then I think Gaviria 2nd then Sagan (not 100% on 2nd and 3rd)
