  • Dumoulin taking the wind for Roglic, though Bennet is stil with them.
    Interesting.

    The Vikings are coming!
  • Zakarin would need to be in front by about a minute going over the top to win this.

    What's the time limit, don't they risk the whole team being outside it doing stupid stuff like this?

    French team thobut.
    Yeah but it is still retarded
    They're not close to being eliminated and his team mates won't be threatening the overall, so what's wrong with helping out?

    It also happens every time a big name gets sick and suffers.
    I get leaving a couple of guys with him, that's legit. But a French flag honour guard looks silly, IMO.

    I guess no chance of the stage though either, so may as well rest up.

    Jumbo now looking a bit thin on the ground too, that's a bit surprising.
  • inseineinseine Posts: 5,785
    Demoulin been used as a domestique
  • Bernal only got Carapaz left?
  • Jumbo falling apart again

  • Alaphilippe has a small dig. Now he's blown up.

    JA attacks, can't see it doing much though. Bennett dropped and Dumoulin had been looking rough. Can't work out how many Ineos have, I think Bernal was up towards the front and two others (Carapaz / Kwia?) hanging on.

    JA dropped.

    Big pogacar!

    Tres amusant!

    Pogacar goes, and Roglic follows.
  • Slovenia attacks!

    Has Bernal been dropped? Yates struggling
  • ProssPross Posts: 30,359
    Ah forgot Bernal was in white. It's gone mad, I think yesterday's racing is catching up on them.

    I am impressed by Dumoulin. He is time trail specialist but he has no problem pulling for his team on the climbs.

    He won’t be able to keep this up though i predict.
  • ProssPross Posts: 30,359
    Yates on his own off the back.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,254
    Yates looks in trouble, couldn't really see
  • Dorset_BoyDorset_Boy Posts: 4,484
    Yates gone
    Dumoulin gone

    Interesting stage 👍
  • inseineinseine Posts: 5,785
    Hope Zakarin passes Peters so we can see him been repassed on the decent ;)

    Bernal looks like a bit of a diesel this year.
    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
  • ProssPross Posts: 30,359
    Uran crosses with ease and helps Bernal and co pull Roglic back. Yates not done and a little group just behind.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 10,450
    Yates crawling back
