    I think that front group might be too small now.

    Groups all over the place now though

    Martinez dropped on descent?

    Dani Martinez needs to be sent to descending school a la Pinot.

    Is that a supertuck ?

    This stage has flown past ...fast?

    Not especially. Just ahead of the middle schedule.
    Should finish a few minutes after 4pm.

    Not enough road left to beat bernal bar a utter collapse and he looks fine to me.

    Almeida always looks knackered, which is no bad thing for when he actually is

    Martinez dropped on descent?

    He is good at that.

    Pretty useless for a mountain domestique, really (I mean, obviously he did a great job the other day but it's a pretty key weakness)

    The question is if those 4 in the front are knackered now I guess. If Yates has been sitting in and is feeling good that gap could go quickly.

    Gap down to 20s... Yates to go at 3k?
  • Martinez doing amazing work here.

    They let Bernal take the 1s bonus remaining there I think.

    Whys the inetmediate so close to the top...
  • This climb has just got into my “must ride” list. Fabulous.

    Bernal picking up the last bonus second on the sprint. Caruso attacks and drops Bardet, who wasn't helping
