    2 big groups on the road
  • The weakest have been culled.

    Big crash!

    This has got pile up written all over it. Ineos split it a bit but then it started to regroup and everyone moved up (as I type it's happened!)

    Including Alaphilippe and Carapaz. Who's that from CCC?
  • Wind direction not ideal

    Alaphilippe has a mechanical which may or may not be related to the crash, as it turns out. Didn't get a good enough look.

    Kwiato called that wonderfully, he's been Bernal's best team mate. MOTM of the tour other than WVA for me.

    Lopez off the back of the front group.
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,254
    Lopez out the back.

    Who said there would be an attack on the bridge :smile: Kung goes - won't get away though

    Kung fro FDJ attacking on bridge

    Ineos are surprisingly good at forcing echelons.

    Turgis attacking.

    Someone lobbed a bottle over the edge into the sea...

    That roundabout has a really long way round!!
  • ProssPross Posts: 30,359
    Jumbo completely balls up a roundabout and go from front to back. Now would be a good time to try to smash it again!
  • Jumbo get it all wrong and go from front to the back

    That's one of the worst mistakes in line I've ever seen. Poor from whoever was calling the shots for them there.

    Them guiding Bernal and Connor Swift guiding Quintana in the crosswinds have been really impressive
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,254
    Jumbo haven't recovered from that mistake, just moving back up to where they were now
  • ProssPross Posts: 30,359
    Kwia is far better at this stuff than you would expect from someone his size.
  • ProssPross Posts: 30,359
    Jumbo got that one right and are back at the front.
  • Mads P was supposed to ride this sprint, but he'll be knackered from babysitting Porte all day

    The Vikings are coming!
  • Headwind finish, I guess that makes Ewan favourite

  • Not sure I'd want to have George Bennett riding hard in front of the peloton like this.

    Fight for Sam Bennet's wheel...
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,254
    Bennett on the line from Ewan who did everything right but couldn't come round.

    We all thought he would get it ... Better from Sagan
