    I was trying to think of previous tours where riders were given time: Chiappucci, Pereiro, Voeckler and Alaphilippe (?). Any others?

    Andrei Kivilev in 2001. Ended up 4th. Then died at Paris-Nice two years later, poor bloke.

    I think Jumbo and Ineos are hoping the UAE riders will suffer a bit sooner than that.

    Kirby's constant "shark" references. Ugh.

    Attacks coming from yellow group, but they've knocked some time off the chase. Break is now very splintered

    Graphics say peleton is gaining 10" per km.

    398 seconds behind with 35.3km to go.

    Edit: now saying peleton gaining 51" /km, but that doesn't scan with what I'm watching.

    I wonder if Pogacar will attack at some point.

    Still quite possible that Pogacar rides away from everyone on the final climb, isn't it?

    Also possible Alaphilippe can breakaway on the final descent.

    Are either of them bothered about catching the Vans?

    It helps when Chris Anker and Rolf Sørensen are calling it on DK TV :wink:

    I know you lot suffer with commentators, so just pass the info on.

    Best form of defense if he can

    Mohoric is looking good here.

    Asgreen putting some pressure on the vans, Yates struggling.

    This descent is going to be very tasty. I always finding them more interesting than MTFs, much more risk taking - just don't want any more crashes!
