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

    At least it's not just me. What is their aim?

    Hmm, dodgy streets through the town centre I guess.

    Roglic down and having bike change

    Roglic mechanical

    No crash, just mechanical but may have crashed earlier.

    Not nice chasing back through these streets, Roglic ignoring his team mates and just going hard alone.

    Problem for Thomas

    Thomas finally has his customary crash. That was a ridiculous unprotected island right on a corner,

    Actually just a dropped chain.

    Chain drop
    ... I think he will get back

    Peloton looking very small and strung out. Going to be quite a tough chase.

    Ganna to the rescue

    Yeah, it has been ridiculous on this section and it should have been possible to do something safer or at least protect the hazards a bit more.

    Ineos blocking up front?

    Bunching a bit more at the front now and he makes it. Peloton is pretty small.

    This is going to be tight for the breakaway.

    Touch and go on the break being caught, that tricky section worked in their favour.

    Jayco to block

    Inside 3km to go, break has 32".

    Think the sprint teams may have misjudged how much the roads on the run in would help them.

    Gap coming down slightly too slowly but the bunch always comes strong in the final km.
