    Is reachable from here.

    Wonder if Rowe just rode the cobbles better than the others or is he actually pressing on?
    Stating the obvious here- many riders, favourites and others, may see their race affected by falls and mechanicals. Being out front an advantage altho getting service from your team car could be more problematic?

  • I think they should sequel "Sunday In Hell 2" with this race.

    Walscheid crashes from the front group and Rowe has disappeared.
  • Eekhoff just won't take a turn will he.

    Front 2/3 pulling out quite a big lead now.
  • ProssPross Posts: 34,821
    Rowe now back in the main break, seems to have a mechanical issue.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 12,940
    the chase is disintegrating that's whats happening...but WvA is upright and the front of the race is disintegrating too...

    if you keep peddling your still in this

    Hard to work out if the break or peloton is the larger.

    Over 110kms to go and no brake pads left ? Both front and back?
