    After that flurry of activity, the race sure has settled down to the more familiar pattern of not a lot happening.
    Will the old race finish trigger the old La Redoute action I wonder?

    Hope so.

    So, we are getting the same old race as usual, but without the final climb to make the selection. Excellent. :oops:

    To all those commenting on the weather, think of us who rode this in the same conditions plus wind and a bit of hail yesterday. Firmly ensconced in a Liege bar with French commentary on the TV and the finish line outside.

    Gilbert dropped

    WTF is going on? Are they riding it like a club run in protest at something.

    First time on the old finish in ages, nobody knows how it will play out, so they're all conservative.

    Less action here than in Fleche, which is some feat.

    It's being run like MSR but a bit heavier going.

    Impey and Wellens join the front two. Only 12" so it makes no real difference.
    Astana doing all the work.
    QS seem to have disappeared entirely.
