    Sounds more like Chris Anker Sørensen to me. 😉

    jeezus, this is going to be dull as ditch-water. Although it might send the riders to sleep and give us some knee graze action to spice it up.

    That aged well :D
    yup, as predictable as my PTP picks. although I called the knee graze action..

    Ineos quite far back and eating so presumably no imminent danger of further splits.

    We could still have a really fun final few Kms once they head back west. They've had a little practice. I think we'll also have quite a few crashes as everyone is going to be nervous anticipating splits and trying not to get caught out.

  • The next 30kms are pretty much all headwind so it should all come back together

    Bit of that, bit of awkward road layouts. Biggest crash happened on a dead straight bit of road with a touch of wheels towards the back, echelons broke out shortly after and then it all reformed, so possible that one was wind related.

  • Wind has turned to NW and picked up a little, according to DK TV.

    Think that buggers echeclons later, more likely to be cross-head than cross-tail.

  • How long was the break away for?

    Was it just the impetus of teams wanting to be at the front and out of crosswind troubles that brought the break back?
