    Yeah, heck of a place to be able to watch the race from. Whoever called it an amphitheatre earlier was right.

    Win stage and secure second in GC.

    Cut off calculator is easiest played with by using the official time schedule. They were just ahead of the fastest schedule earlier, which gives a litte more comfort to the green jersey group.

    WIth Pog in Kuss' wheel? They need to shake Carapaz - he's weaker - you'd be better off yo-yoing him off.

    Virtually every option would end with a Pogacar win, but they tried what they could.

    Some lovely shots of lorries and tarmac in the final 500m there.
