    Opened up a big split on the descent there. Stybar in the front.

    Half the bunch lost on the Muur.

    In fairness I heard he was out from the commentary team of the woman’s race in French. I didn’t see anything!

    Hooooj split now - 45 seconds, some decent names have missed it.
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 16,649
    Naesen and Vanmarcke at the rear of the peloton....Kristoff stuck back there, too.

    Vos punctures, 16km to go. Bastianelli in a group of 4 breaking away

    So, Matti Bresche hasn't retired, just been hiding in Italy....sneaky, Zubeldia-esque.

    Made it to the Kaizer Quint in time ofr Oude Kwaaremont *2, on schedule. May have burnt a few matches though...

    G2 make the catch. It's a dangerous group.

    looks flat, isn't.

    Van Poppel reached the head of the race then the anchors went on... Some heavy hitters on the front now.
  • ProssPross Posts: 26,063
    Danny Van Poppel put a huge effort in to bridge to the lead 4 only to go out the back as group 2 caught them. Front group all back together bar a few stragglers.
  • ShutupJensShutupJens Posts: 1,373
    Pretty sure I just saw van Poppell sliding out the back of the bunch, absolutely fisted himself on that false flat
  • ProssPross Posts: 26,063
    Impetus seems to have gone out of the front group, the lead over the peleton has dropped to 50 seconds
  • slim_boy_fatslim_boy_fat Posts: 1,808
    Attacking in the feed zone?

    Duvie triple hop..........not in the same league as the Westie, imo.

    Yeah the peloton could get back in.

    I think the pace has gone up in the peloton too, there were 3 katusha riders hammering the front just now
  • ProssPross Posts: 26,063
    Katusha driving hard through the feed zone, that won't be popular.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 9,327
    Mohoric attacks

    75km to go

    The triple hops have never done it for me, tbh. Was very excited first time I got to try, but when it comes to it, you can't actually improve a Duvel, it's perfect as it is.

    All back together with Mohoric soloing off the front.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 9,327
    Back together!

    Those katusha domestiques straight out the back. Good work from them.

    Massively enjoying the profile with the "distance from finish" markings on it.

    Rowe attack :-)
