    Also, I've been conditioned to expect "de l'Arbre" to come after Carrefour, despite having shopped at plenty in decades gone by

    If Dygert had gone about 50m later she might have nicked that. Good effort though.

    Just watched on catch up. Marianne is a machine. Good to see Chloe D back in contention after that helluva crash back in 2020, even if she might be a right wing Trumpite.

    Active finish stage 4 .... Lot of attacks . Reduced bunch sprint to finish off ... No prizes for guessing the winner

    Vos just seems smarter than the rest, on top of everything else she brings to the table.

    Vollering blows AvV away on the summit finish. Just looked easy for her.

    MTF cat 2 with steep Ramps ... Vollering was strong but not on a different level .

    One sat down looking rather chilled, the other out of the saddle auditioning for the world gurning champs.

    AvV full shapes couldn't come off the wheel and accelerate

    Van Vleuten will never win awards for looking stylish on a bike. But Vollering looks like she's a level above at the moment. Sunday will tell us for sure.
