    So that's Carapaz taking the TT easy until the climb then going flat out to take the mountain points?

    Porte punctures on discs so no service. It took a while but his luck has returned.

    Porte, aaaaah, the bad luck gets you in the end - what week do you want it in?

    Roglic morale is high.
  • See, who needs discs.

    I'm going to put this in the unpopular opinions category but this is why I hate gravel and cobbles in a GT.
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    So for all the 'polka is rubbish' it's the most interesting competition in week 3.
  • Roglic morale is high.

    But not his intelligence.
    Dropping Kuss not the smartest idea.
    Lucky the others were just as dumb.

    It's because a few proper climbers are now going for it which doesn't happen often enough.

  • I swear I just saw Mas trying to get Kuss to work with him to attack when they both popped off the front...
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 12,501
    Landa regained a bit of honor .

    Surely they give this to Kwiat for all the hard Tour work he's done?
