    Decent by Sivakov, didn't expect him to be the first Ineos rider to cross the line.

    Big figure in the peloton everyone out the saddle last corner

  • LOL at Pedersen being like a bull in climber’s china shop. A few mountain types will have sore shoulders this evening.

    As Pross says, Roglic did what Roglic does.

  • Most of the GC types were either on ST or lumped together at 7 seconds.
    There are a few notable exceptions:
    Not a GC rider but perhaps the biggest surprise of all was Julian Alaphilippe came in 28 seconds down.
    Nibali lost 45"
    Jungels lost 6 minutes
    Pinot lost 6 and a quarter.
    Lutsenko ended the day at 10'-29"
    Froome rolled home over 14 minutes down, so all that post Tour wishful thinking was just that.

    It was a really really fast stage ...under raced (ja) or tired (froome) is not going to cut it .

    Can someone explain to me how Roglic/Kuss who were tied on time yesterday are now separated by 13 sec after finishing today's stage in the S.T. but with Roglic gaining a 10 sec time bonus? Is this "new math?" <<never mind...I see he gained some 3 sec for a sprint bonus before the finish also (?)...odd>>

    Sam oomen was definitely not happy that he missed the red jersey.
    Roglic was just very happy it seemed.

    JV is not one big happy family. There are cliques. Sam is not part of the Roglic / WVA camp.

    There was a time bonus sprint earlier iirc
