    Absolutely, stunning part of the world. We honeymooned in the area 23 years ago (how time flies). Can safely say Rivello is the most serene and stunning place I've ever been. Always said we'd go back but never have :/

    GC teams to drill it on the early climbs to test out Remco's injuries? SQS reporting he's quite stiff with a bruised hip, would have thought they'd have said he was fine.

    There's a potato chaser in between and Bardiani appear to have been told they need someone in the break. Feels like they've left it too late though and are just going to annoy everyone.

    OK so Hatch has just just the term "chasing potatoes".

    Anyone able to enlighten the permanently bewildered as to its origin?

    Serre must be getting fed up, I assume the DS is punishing him for missing the move initially

    Ineos cutting the gap has made the break catchable and the race hard ...Bahrain and UAE are hammering it but the break is making a good fist of it

    Is 1 minute per 10k still a thing? Watching on PCS the gap has only come down by 30 seconds in 15 k or so

    Don't get why Ineos are still on the front.
