    They've not been hanging through most of the stage - assume they're just back at the cars.

    Cav group out the back now.

    30s adrift of the Yellow group at about 9min 500m from the top of this climb.

    Should be safe today

    Lol. Still going up hill. That was just mean

    And if this particular solar plant doesn't light up like the eye of Sauron when it's operational I'm going to be sorely disappointed.

    The UAE train...

    I've been on that, very scenic route.
    Also skied in Les Angles, just along from Mont St Louis, whilst staying in Prades, so drove the first part of the stage daily for a week - not fun having to do that daily!

    Burning to death in a fiery death ray could make for an interesting round of golf...

    One of the largest solar parks in India. Fantastic if you have the weather for it.

    EBH wobbling all over the place now. Spent ages back at the car after this exchange, but moved back up in the peloton after a while. Ill?

    Belgian commentary of the view this stage is a WvA sharpener for the Olympics.

    Ineos and Movistar take over from UAE.
    Thin out team support I suppose

    Maybe his cycle computer is saying he’s done over 200km

    Cavendish off the back now. Morkov, Declerq and Devenyns with him.

    Cav's even low on the bike when he climbs.

    So Castro and van Baarle dropped at the same time or called back as a link for a Carapaz attack?

    If the latter they may as well have emailed UAE advanced notice

    Ineos on the front shelling UAE, the two Ineos ahead are waiting....

    Quintana attacks after the front group added about an extra km to the climb by weaving all across the road. Think they'd been watching American Flyers "shake and break"
