    Perhaps Roglic needs to improve his descending skills; never noticed before how he doesn't always properly judge a relatively easy bend/corner. Not saying he was bad, but for a top contender, …..

    On the other hand, Bardet's best-ever TT?

    Can anyone offer an explanation why Quest didn't show the highlights at 11 pm as scheduled?

    Didn’t you enjoy “Border Control Poland”?

    (Didn’t) have it recorded; when I skipped through to see if there was anything at all I see they were advertising the ES coverage.

    Same here. I had the recording overlapped 5 minutes at the start and end and it wasn't on then either. Maybe it's just a ploy to encourage you to subscribe to Discovery+. Stage 2 forwards supposed to be on at 7 pm from now on. We'll see.

    Couldn't find enough interesting footage to fill the slot? I gave up after half an hour and had a snooze instead.

    Judge for yourself. But the evidence suggests he's rubbish

    It's a pretty cool area (the Planica valley - where that ski jump is based that is) and has the wonderful Vrsic pass just down the road
