    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.

    You've had more drama this afternoon than we've had in race.............until the crash.

    Now it's a sprinter puncture break.

    A Cav v WvA sprint would be tasty

    Kelly talking the sort of nonsense I have to hear on a day to day basis in my professional life. The suitability of a road for a cycle race to pass is probably not on the radar of a highway engineer no matter how big a cycling fan they may be and nor should it be.

    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.

    Me too!
    Sitting here all dressed and ready to go but thought I may as well watch the end first...
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    If this ends up as a sprint it'll be a mess. Matches being burnt all over the place.

    Is Pog or another contender dropped? Don't get Carapaz pulling otherwise.

    Not Pog obviously

    It's as though Movistar and Ineos have got their tactics books muddled up.

    Ineos having stirred it all up briefly now appear to be hanging on the back of the group.

    Edit - Carapaz still near the front

    DQS have lost a lot of riders early for this

    Ineos were hoping there would be sufficient crosswinds to break it up.

    So despite extending the 3km limit the GC teams are still on the front
