    Well shame for the race but you could feel it coming

    Ya, unfortunately, this.

    Hoping Pogacar can still spice things up so we don't have to watch a Roglic JV procession to Paris.

    Lots of people (not necessarily here) were saying that Bernal will do better at altitude. Not much good for him if he's already been popped off at the bottom of the climb, is it?

    I had been holding hope.

    Odds on Bernal abandoning?

    Looks like SDB sent the Tour team to Tirreno by mistake
  • Is WvA still on the front :o

    But that is what happens every year, usualy its a sky team that does it. Kwia is a classics rider and is better than bernal. this is a bernal issue not anything else

    I’ll go with 8 minutes. Assuming he doesn’t climb off.

    And Quintana? And all the other riders he's dropping off the back? When have we ever seen riders bossing sprint finishes and then dropping climbers up hill?

    This is silly.

    It's more bernal than anything else the rest look comfortable relatively

    I'll take everything back about Jumbo. This is awesome and they've got it just right.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.
