    Ulissi, Sagan, Honoré, Matthews, Wackerman, Almeida.

    On the other hand he looked spritely compared to the rest of the fast men when it came to chasing him down out of the bunch.

    thought it was more Sagan chose the wrong side to go round Honoré, had to check momentum and that gave Ullisi the gap he needed to win

    I feel like Ulisi wins a stage like that every year at the Giro
  • Looked to me like Ulissi had to hang around waiting for someone to sprint against. Was never losing that.

    On s4c iPlayer

    OMFG... This is A MAZE ING.

    Switched it on and first words were

    Geraint Thomas Welsh word Tirrano Adricco, Welsh word Duaphine, Welsh word Welsh word Pantani.

    This is better than trying to understand Sporza.

    Out of interest, who are the Welsh commentary team? Is cycling a regular thing in S4C ?
    Seems to be but only highlights. If you go to S4c you need to type sieclo which is welsh for cycling. Highlights are on the player for a month so you can watch it again. usually they go on after 9.30pm. the welsh commentary is quite good in an excited 'foreign' way. Obviously not as passionate as the Italian.

    S4C have tended to do live coverage of the National Trophy and Nationals in cyclo-cross when my club hosted it. They do highlights of the junior races and full coverage of the Elite men and women. The local kids love it as those who can speak Welsh often get interviewed.
