    Stuyven joining too.

    Decent group of rouleurs in the chase now.

    The two Sunweb riders are there to mark the break. They are not going to work.

    I assume DQS were slightly concerned about Sagan on this terrain and wanted to get the break away. Just managed to get the front 4 caught instead.

    They are obviously all in for Bol today. They are blatantly chasing everything down.

    Sagan, Trentin and Bennett are funny. Could see the green and orange and you knew Sagan was sitting there somewhere too.

    Bennett must be feeling pretty good as he has not had much trouble covering Sagan's moves.

    Oh God. Kelly and Kirby fot the final.

    No it isn't! When is it ever a good time to hand over to Carlton Kirby!

    WTF most of the stage favourites in a break on a sprint stage. That's pretty rare. Big gap in no time too.
  • ProssPross Posts: 32,894
    Rowe out front again, he's another rider who has earned a win over the years.

    Vive le tour . Good for the riders to make a show of it

    Lead just grew by a minute in a km or two. That can't be right surely?
  • bobmcstuffbobmcstuff Posts: 10,518
    Break of fast men now - Naesen, Sagan, Bennett, Devenyns, Kragh Andersen, Arndt, Rowe I think? GVA or Trentin? I thought I saw a gold helmet.

    Bennett's playing it well and literally just sitting on Sagan's wheel. Has another DQS too.

    Bit weird
    Believe that a farther shore
    Is reachable from here.
    Believe in miracles
    And cures and healing wells

    Trek rider looks a bit of a weak link, the others will have to watch he doesn't leave a gap.
  • ProssPross Posts: 32,894
    Stage over, cue messing around at the front
  • Looks more like the GP Plouay than a TDF stage.

    Lotto packing it in was proper cycling moment

    Bennett only bothered about covering Sagan.

    Direct Energie restarting the chase, there'll be a few tired riders cursing them

    Bennet is riding really well to cover Sagan, IMO
