    Yellow jersey group losing ground on Quintana - knackered? Saving themselves for tomorrow? Or is it all about to kick off?

    Poels pulls off. Blimey. Van Barle to the front again.

    So slow train means Quintana coming right back into the mix in his terrain.

    Quintana is in line for 18 seconds in bonuses too, if the favourites take it easy on the descent then he could take 6 minutes plus!

    Bernal needs to attack and force some reaction, otherwise it'll just stall.

    Very suspect of Jumbo and Ineos tactics.
  • Bardet's descending good enough to catch Quintana on the descent?
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 47,481 Lives Here
    You’re not gonna win it if you don’t drop Alaphilippe and why are you letting Quintana back in on GC?

    Get a move on.

    Probably not, but Quintana making a mistake is not out of the question.

    Its not in his back garden, unlike most of his stand out descending.

    I wish this gc group would stop pissing about and race.

    It's such a brutal mountain I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would be the race over it

    It was just an over enthusiastic fans who gave Alaphilippe a mugfull that he didn't appreciate.
    Bernal does what Was called for.

  • Alaphilippe's gurning has been a big bluff. Or he just can't help it.

    She's almost as small as the new lightweight Valverde, so good luck.
