    Yes.
    Some serious cow action there. One or two have stopped eating to have a look at what is going on.

  • Higuata just handed food from his mussette to Quintana. You are not allowed to do that. You can only pass food to a teammate

    Ben o'Connor could get virtual Yellow if the gap gets bigger.

    God this looks miserable. Even with grande vache action.

    That is the "unwritten" Colombian Code. They stick together.

    I was just a bit hungover today... similar weather here to on the Tour so instead of a nice Sunday pub ride I'm dragging myself onto Zwift.

    Riders often take feeds from other team cars

    I thought the rule was no food from team mates/others in the last 20k as a way to cheat the no feeding in the last 20k rules (a la Porte and Froome some years back) and no taking food from spectators.

    Good news for Cav.

    You can't take a feed from side of road or car in last 20 k

    Unless the riders have taken to eating wheels, it's OK.

    Typical, I missed yesterday live and today looks like being dull.

    Is the story CK is about to launch into about climbs determined by car gears actually true or just an urban myth?

  • Blimey, has Quintana remembered how to ride a bike on the front of a race?

    About 30 riders left in the peloton and UAE have 7 of them.
