    Blythe with the shade on Jay Vine, "There's no power ups".

    He was sounding petulant in his interview. Once he lost time he should have been committing himself to a helping role.
    I think every interview I've heard with him has been about how he can maximize his income from cycling
    He's always struck me as grounded, someone who's seized his opportunities later in life than most, has gone all in with his Mrs and appreciates that success could all evaporate as quickly as it appeared for him.

    No time for romantic ideals, he's just got to get the job done while he can.

    Who else had Sean dropping the "shmoking the pipe" on their bingo card?

    “Fumé la pipe as the Frenchies say” ! Loved it.

    Yes, this race could be decided in the mountains, just not the usual side.

    Dangling though, not sure how much he’ll offer. There’s not much valley is there?

    25km of flat before the last climb.
    I think nobody told Paret-Peintre

    Conditions are fine at the finish. Should be a tailwind along the valley now too.

    Got to admire their skills in taking those jackets on and off at reasonable pace in a bunch., It'd be straight in my spokes causing a pile up, but then, I would never make it up those gradients either.

    The riders obviously enjoy 80km stages, from the laughing and joking.
