    Everyone down is back on a bike, not sure who's chasing back still. Alpecin-Fenix kept riding a bit. UAE had a word with them

    I listened to "The Move" last night (sorry), but LA was talking about this and how he should try and not make enemies with the other teams or the French fans. Before you say it, he did say it's good coming from him.

    Matthews pulls back 3 PTS . Cav looks a bit sluggish. Heavy legs

    Wrong thread

    Oooh, bit narrow through the town... That's going to be well dodgy for the peloton in 3 mins

    However slim their chances, I would have thought that Bike Exchanged and Bahrain are now obliged to control this breakaway.

    Maybe Pogacar was just trying to persuade Kwia that since it's Greipel's birthday today (39!), they all should let him win.

    Is the team gc a factor here ? This is bonkers

    DQS don't have the legs or cav has signalled he doesn't.... Still a long way to go

    Not sure what logic dictates that you go for peanut points at the Intermediate sprint, then let all the stage points swan off up the road.

    I think the penny may finally have dropped with Bahrain now on the front.

    Some names missing from that list, crashes aren't good for ensuring everyone has a transponder

    I'm confused. Are Geraint / Porte in the break or peloton?

    Peloton.
    Yeah, doesn't make much sense.
    We've also seen Froome sent up to help Greipel

    Worked it out now, assumed they were in the break the way they were riding on the front when I switched on. No idea what they're up to and not sure they do anymore. Maybe just helping out their old mate Cav.
