    TGH did the climb fastest and is in the KOM! apparently a timer error was corrected over night

    That's eyebrow raising

    Good point on the cycling podcast that the high speed TT overly rewarded aero and so may not be the best indicator of legs.

    Riders stretched out will be GC gaps

    Some crazy pinch points on the way in.

    Milan (sp) took the sprint - really, really ugly sprinter but quick.

    Typically I missed the only action of the day when having to go and pick my daughter up from work. Sounds like the crash was well before the dodgy run in the GCN crew had been warning about (but probably stopped an otherwise inevitable crash on that roundabout). Any GC riders lost time?

    Why do they keep saying Ackermann caused the crash? It looked like a DSM rider to me, drifting into a Movistar rider when they looked behind them. Ackermann came 6th.
