  • Ganna will work with TdG if he can.

    Ben Swift on a much better day after yesterday's crash.

    TdG breather then push to the top probably.
    If enough energy left.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

  • When did cycling commentators become so obsessed with the weather?
    It's raining at the finish. Fancy that happening outdoors. Cancel the stage.

    Astana take over on the front....not sure why

    These pictures through the mist are really rather epic. How do you say Tour of Mordor in the language of Mordor..?

    Dunno, but it makes sense that they're on bikes.

    Yates dropped over the top,

    Fuglesang off the front of the peloton? Road doesn't look too bad but conditions are awful.

    Ganna has 50s with 10 to go...

    Lol I know this is a joke and I will take the bait but a tester smashing up a third cat in the big ring is not quite the same as a climber...

    Ineos getting good at saving a failed race with a stage win. Getting loads of practice
