    Looking like a big mistake bringing Carapaz in place of Thomas right now.

    Yeah, don't get how Carapaz ended up in no man's land.

    Edit needed a wheel apparently.

    32 seconds for Carapaz after a puncture.
  • Gonna wind back the ITV coverage
    See what happened :)

    Apologies to Carapaz. It was a mechanical apparently.

    This is the reason I was surprised at his omission. If you take him as a domestique he offers you more support in a full range of situations. That said, look like Carapaz had a mechanical and no-one is getting back if that happens now.

    Just going to post the same thing and said it at the time.

    its damage limitation for carapaz now
  • ProssPross Posts: 31,576
    I hadn't realised Catroviejo was still in the front group. Not much support for Bernal now but then I suppose having two just behind would be a help if anything did happen.
  • david37david37 Posts: 1,313
    soon we'll see Bernal driving it on the front :)
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,367
    Sending someone back for Carapaz is daft, he's not going to get back to the front group - should have just waited for group 2
  • ProssPross Posts: 31,576
    Well over a minute now to the Pogacar group.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 10,990
    Wva might as well give it a go . He might be tired though

    @rick_chasey thinks he is a shoe in for the win today.

    I thought that at first but it could be the difference between a podium or not if he saves 30 seconds and it's not really harming Bernal.
  • I really hope Sagan scores well today after all the work Bora did

    If he sprints he wins is my guess ..

    I reckon it's his - would be gutting for Bora although I'm not sure the stage was their original aim.

  • Ominously, the Green jersey is now 11 minutes back, so where is the Ewan group?

    How are we sitting for the cut off?
    Looks like the organisers may have a tough decision to make, or are there too many?
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Only a minute or so behind them according to the Tour tracker.
