    Just saw the bike change, looks so funny.

    Shouldn't be allowed to have someone push you off if you've just changed because you want a different bike.

    Bardet needs to give it up. Looks like an amateur out there, embarrassing. Anyone else a bit nervous for Thomas? This has crash written all over it...

    Yes, but I always am with Geraint.

    Strangely, I fear for Alaphillipe. He may push too hard.

    Bardet painful. Looked like he and his bike were going through an ugly divorce but trying to put on a united front for the sake of the children.

    Pinot's drafting convoy need to get a bit closer. Only 4th at CP 2. :P
