    This is a perfect stage to be on hold to the Dutch public health authorities because they've effed up your Covid vaccine records rendering you physcially fully vaccinated but digitally unvaccinated.

    Take the extra dose! ideally of another flavour!

    And the race is on at the front, 42 seconds to the break, this is going to split

    At least two DQS off the front there. Interesting.

    DQS got lazy and let the gap get to.close

    Simon Yates is back on his bike but alone and left miles adrift.

    2 remaining in the break but they’re having digs at each other, peloton now attacking each other as well.

    Like Luke Rowe taking his commitment to the Lanterne Rouge to extremes.

    Weird, someone decided to not bother taking the bend and ride off the road instead causing chaos behind. I know the road had narrowed a bit but it will be difficult for people to blame anyone other than the riders for that one.

    It was Tim Declerq. He overlapped a wheel, came down and hit a post. Everybody else piled in behind.

    Meh.
    They were just bored and trying to stay awake.

    I have FINALLY solved my digital ghost problem!

    The solution... go here and speak to someone in person and they will re-enter your details.

    Ended up in a hedge in that stage. Don't think he's been fit enough to do much since.

    A few of the sprint contenders were involved in the crash then.

    I ought to be trying to head out on the bike for a change in recent times, but Cav is still in the potential mix for today, with ~40Km left.
