  • Doesn't look like this break will get away, GvA too close to yellow probably.

    Looks like they're going to let them go. Thats a surprise, super strong group.

    Yates looks supremely un-bothered in the peloton, chatting away with an EF rider.

    Peloton blocking the road now.

  • Looks like they've let them go. Surprised at that, it's a strong selection there.

    OK fine no-one has read the rider.

    I'm wasted on you lot ;)

    Proper go slow in the peloton now, riders stopping for a wee etc.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,256
    I don't see why Yates should care about defending the jersey from GvA, it's not like GvA can win overall. Lot of silly emotion attached to "defending the jersey".

    Although I guess this year is a bit different, if the race could be stopped at any time it makes more sense.
  • Sean still sticking with "Tour of France"
  • GvA in "virtual" yellow
  • GVA going to torpedo the breakaway's chances.

    If he's not expecting to be in contention for it at the end (which was what he was saying before the race started) then every day in the jersey is a bonus and worth fighting for surely? If, however, he thinks he is in with a genuine shout then 'lending' the jersey to someone else for a few days might be a smart move. Given he was handed the jersey I suspect he might want to feel he's earned it today and will also want to retain it as long as possible.
  • Carlton and Brian banging on about Yates not yellowifying his kit and bike out of respect (other than his yellow jersey). Do they not have eyes? He has got extra yellow on his shorts (around the logo at the bottom of the legs)
  • Kirby has spotted that you can shout "Cevennes" in the style of Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing.

    I'm just waiting for live coverage to start on ITV4. Eurosport is now purely a no other option choice.

    GCN is working really well on the computer. Might be something for you to consider the next time they have an offer.

    Being held at 6'30"ish. I think they'll be reeled in later.

    Lots of MS at the front, but not the yellow jersey. He's hiding someway back.
