    So far Storer doing a better job of holding the combined chase of Movistar and Bahrain at bay than Bernal and Roglic managed against Bahrain yesterday.

    So far.


    The gap between Storer and the peloton is exactly the same as it was 15km ago. I don't think anyone is going for a big attack today.
    No.
    Much as feared.
    Absolutely lost as to what Bahrain's goal has been.
    Chase the break all the way to the final climb then toodle along no quicker than the guy who has been riding solo for 50kms.

    De la Cruz is catching him, even if the bunch isn't.

  • Poels gone, Caruso gone before halfway, you assume there must have been some grand idea behind all that.

    No, Bernal with Roglic.
    Bahrain group get back on.

    Lopez about to catch de la Cruz
  • So, Roglic jumps on the wheel of the guy who's in 6th, but lets the guy in 3rd swan off the front.
