    If we have a meaningful GC race after stage 1 I'll be happy.
    If we still have a meaningful GC race after stage 10 I'll be amazed.

    Yeah you raise a valid concern

    Why wouldn't there be a meaningful race after stage 1? Qst, tjv and ineos should all be OK.

    I think we do, but it's now between one rider and himself.

    It’ll be interesting to see if he maintains this for the full 3 weeks and doesn’t implode.
