    This isn't working I fear

    What are they trying to do? I am confused.

    It is a bit odd, why aren't they making JV do the work? Very strange.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    Mads looking fairly sharp, heading into the worlds.
  • Because a problem shared is a problem halved, I thought I'd mention that I've got "oh, Andrey Amador, col de la loze baby, and don't try to save me" stuck in my head on a constant sodding Beck-infested loop.

    If they can leave any of Porte, Yates, Lopez or Uran isolated, there's a chance to move towards the podium.

    I don't think JV would have done the work to make it so hard all day.

    Not going. Course doesn't suit him and it's in the way of the autumn spring classics prep

    JA. Parks it after a Carapaz attack yesterday. Attacks them the next day, a few km into a 21km beast.

    Weird behaviour.

    If Bahrain pulled off JV would slow it down .

    I'm a fan, but beginning to prefer his one dayer exploits to this.

    Carapaz looks like he's been up all night.

    We know what the French call it.
    The rest of the cycling world has a different name for it. ;)

  • Worst case scenario: other than riders going out of the back door, it may be almost another hour before an attack.

  • Riders now starting to exit the bunch.
    The big question is will there still be 6 Jumbo riders left when Caruso is spent.

    As I type, no, Gesink gone.
