    This is so boring. At least Quintana and Froome would attack a bit out.

    Jumbo made a boring format even more boring. Like a bunch kick without the excitement.

    Hope there's a least a good "sprint" for the line.

    If Bernal goes home, I wonder if Ineos will ‘help’ Yates🤔 No point going for stage wins, nobody in that squad is capable.
  • Called it 600 metres.
    I didn't think it was possible, but Jumbo are making Sky look exciting.

    That, ladies and gentlemen, is the end of this year's Tour.

    I think Roglic's heart rate got into triple figures at the end there. Amazing :/
  • Are Slovenians the new Kazacs?

    What a laugh. Kuss able to throw up a road block, sprint past Pogacar and then he thought "hang on I'd better sit up."

    Held high hopes for that stage, boring as. The Slovenians most certainly have an agreement, if that was Porte he'd have went round him to take the win. Last stage I'll watch live this year.

  • Kuss is not quite up to the job on that evidence. What was he doing? He missed Roglic’s mark, wobbled around unconvincingly, then blew up and got in the way. Hopefully JV will not rely on him in that way again. It’s just a lack of experience, nothing to worry about.
  • salsiccia1salsiccia1 Posts: 3,723
    Jumbo have absolutely Ineosed this today. Ineos are going to have to really tool up next year.

    What a censored of a stage. As bad as anything from the Sky domination period. Literally one attack on the big climb. Some impressive rides from WVA and Dumoulin but that's about it.

    Ineos may as well go all in for Yates now and get some practice in for next season. Bernal surely ill or booked, that was painful to watch.
  • I think Roglic let him have it

    A long range attack by Roglic's standards and it cost him. He'll wait til 300m next time.

    Were the Sky stages really that boring? No action until the last 600m of a MTF?
  • Another cracking 500 metres of mountain action from the team who have been making Sky look exciting since 2020.

    What a stinker of a stage.
    Bring back Sagan and his Bora boys.
