    Oof that looks steep!

    Haig is looking very good.

    Really hope Gibbons can hold on here, looks like curtains for the Bardet group

    Bahrain should let the stage go ?

    Only Gibbons in front of the Roglic group. He has 1:30, going to be tough to hold on if they kick off behind.
  • So Lopez has managed to spit his dummy out further than Landa.

    Yates has gone for it.

  • Of course Lance Roglic strolls across the gap.

    Yates attacks about 7k out and gets a gap. Roglic closes it unnecessarily with Mas superglued to his wheel. Haig just about gets back. Gibbons lead down to 33".

    Yates has to go hard

    Tries again, Roglic stage chasing is saving Haig.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 10,450
    Yates can't sustain it

    Roglic won't win himself many long term friends chasing down all the attacks that are zero threat to him.
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,946
    Yates needs to commit to this even if he takes Roglic and Mas as Haig is struggling

    Good grief

    Roglic attacks, no prizes for guessing who is stuck to his wheel.

    Gibbons about to get caught.
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,946
    Opens the gap again as the chasing 4 sit up on a descent.

    Limp Bizkit catches and passes the 4 as they mess around

    He'll let Mas go, no doubt.

    Yates needs to go again to properly drop Haig.
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,946
    Yates has to decide if he wants a chance of the stage or to get on the podium. He has Haig on the ropes but won't get the stage if he takes Roglic. Seems to have decided the podium is worth it.

    Gibbons finally caught. Haig back again.
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,946
    Mas finally attacks but gets pulled back by Gibbons 🤣
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,946
    Lopez abandon confirmed. Should make for a good episode on the Netflix show
  • Full gurn from Champoussin

    Ha ha where did that come from?
  • ProssPross Posts: 29,946
    Champoussin comes through and attacks. Roglic lets him go suggesting he doesn't really care about the stage. Bizarre tactics
  • Dorset_BoyDorset_Boy Posts: 4,421
    Champoussin has a real chance to pinch this.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 10,450
    LOL

    nice work Champoussin
    Roglic's 300m sprint takes second and Yates 3rd, Mas 4th and a small gap to Haig.

    Weird stage ...one to remember
