in Pro race
This years addition seems at first glance to be somewhat light on climbing in the high mountains. So a 32km ITT could well define the overall GC. As seems to be the trend these days, the mountain battle looks to be focused at the very end of the race and in particular, the final climb of this uninspiring edition.
VAN AERT Wout
"Science is a tool for cheaters". An anonymous French PE teacher.
The descent to the valley down Presles would have been interesting
Which means they'll go and win it. 🤣
I am not sure. You have no chance.
Cake is just weakness entering the body
Tough to listen to him repeating over and over who is likely to feature for the stage.
Especially having already endured him, trying to catch up with last week’s Tour of Norway.
Van Aert wins after Hayter effectively leads him out.
Ultimately Ineos needed one more man at the end so Hayter didn't need to go quite so soon but WvA was comfortable winner.
Bike Exchange obviously brought a team to tow Groenewegen around in a group of his own.
He looks overweight and out of condition.
Vuillermoz takes the overall lead and the stage. Apparently the first French rider to lead the GC since 2007.
Good interview with Froome before the stage.
Vuillermoz was certainly delighted with his yellow jersey. Not sure he should have got the combativity as well though.
Pretty depressing 2 days for the BE team.
It's just dismal
Once you notice it, it drives you up the wall.
So many words, so little worthwhile content.
Unbearable again today.
UAE and Juan Ayuso were not present at the race.
