    I have just tuned in.

    Am I right Pog is back with the same peloton?

    This road looks barely wide enough as a bike path

    What were people saying about meintjes on the Froome thread ??

    Bloody hell. Kron puncture

    Jumbo take it up. Wout goes on the front and suddenly the peloton is in bits. Looks like he’s dropped Roglic?!

    Roglic did a turn himself first
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 70,638 Lives Here
    Also if Matthews cannot finish this off he doesn’t deserve to win.

    WvA splits the peloton in 2.

    Pidcock falling back

    They used Roglic up first I think, for what he had left. Used a lot of energy at the start chasing on

    Pidcock out the back

    Jumbo have cut out a lot of deadwood.

    Kron and the other dropped riders get back to the chasers!

    For all the boring sky chat I can’t remember a team collectively so far ahead of the rest of the peloton as Jumbo

    40 secs enough ?

    Yes. Pressure behind suits Matthews
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 70,638 Lives Here
    Someone said pre tour why take Thomas. Easily best of the rest behind Pog and Ving

    Did not look at the profile…

    Bettiol dropping the rest in pursuit of the solo Matthew’s who’s up putting it all onthe line.

    Bettiol going very fast
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 70,638 Lives Here
    Bettiol catches Matthew’s and tries to shake him off.

    Matthew’s creaking

  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 70,638 Lives Here
    Matthew’s hanging in at about 8 bike lengths
  • r0bhr0bh Posts: 2,131
    Or has he, Matthews is not giving up
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 70,638 Lives Here
    600m to the top

    It's a Bling bong battle.
