    Big problems for Ineos.
    Rodriguez has a nasty cut above his eye and his left arm is a mess.

    Thanks @jimmyjams we’ll probably go camping in France next summer and I’ve had permission to go around the time of the Tour as we’re now able to go away outside school holidays. Hopefully the Tour route will be back in this area and we can tie it all up. Looks like it will be good for a bit of running and hopefully a bit of fishing.

    Meanwhile, Vingegaard in a front group of 25ish...UAE chasing

    He shoud probably just drop back and let the break go

    Kuss was also taken down in the chute

    Rodriguez shouldn’t be riding until he gets looked at, face is bashed up.

    Yep, he needs to sit up or he won’t make himself popular.

    Kuss also has facial injuries.

    Mads Pedersen suggesting to Vingegaard that he leaves the break?

    It's such a tough call to make with riders on GC ..the protocol need a re injection into the bunch clause so riders stop for the check and pressure on all the officials is safety only

    Barguil was pretty definite about it.
    All very strange, no idea what he was trying to acheive

    He’s lacking a bit of awareness. There was another Jumbo rider up there who could have stayed but Jonas is just getting them chased. Looks like a break has now gone and left him.

    This feels like a very good lead group for this terrain.

    Neilands deserves a win

    Definitely, though they could probably do with a couple more riders (and minutes)

    5 more points to Ciccone in the KOM.
    There's got to be an argument that Skjelmose is the luxury domestique of the Tour this year, the shifts he's put in for Ciccone and Mads P have been incredible


    And we now have a Pinot/Küng/Madouas/Uran+++ attack to try and bridge
