    Far nicer as a descent than a climb. Ineos have really thinned it out and slashed the break's lead.

    Kwiatkowski pulls off, Thomas takes over. Nobody else has anyone with them. Kruiswijk is maybe waiting for Vingegaard

    Is WVA still in the KOM battle then?

    After that climb, it's 68 points poels, 66 Woods, 64 wva, 60 nairo.

    Very close.

    Carapaz has to go early on the final climb now to make the most of this surely?

    This looks the sort of descent I could go fast on.

    Chaves has quietly regained his form. I seem to remember someone saying he hasn’t got a team for next year.

    Seems like the strategy of Pogacar this tour is just to follow Carapez, just like what he did to Roglic last year.

    Ineos must be going mad that everytime they look behind, there is Pogacar behind them smiling.
