    Crash already.
    Mitch Docker down in his last race.

    Oh and commentary bliss too!

    I watched the 2016 backstage pass again last night - he had a big crash then too!

    Surprised to see The Tractor struggling today. Too much effort baby sitting last week perhaps...

    Not easy to organise a real chase at the best of times, the big names are going to have to go on the offensive fairly early although the gap has dropped a bit.

    everyone will have an issue today

    This is absolutely brutal.
    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

    This is grim without the cobbles. I can see 30-40 finishers max.
