    Pinot with a plan

    They've heard @jimmyjams say something about free beer at a cycling event finish - Plugge was right

    Not yet, no. He wasn't selected by IPT to ride the Tour, hence the commentary stint. I think he's retiring at the end of the season though.

    Kuss looks in a bit of trouble. Hopefully he can drag himself through to finish.

    Pinot has bridged

    Ciccone will take the 5 pts and put himself 21 ahead of Gall with 23 left

    Wallonie starts today and for the first time, all the stages have live coverage.
    Used to be only the last two, after the tour had finished.

    UAE controlling at the front, they want something from the stage

    2nd behind Vingergaard obviously

    Mads Pedersen suggesting to Vingegaard that he leaves the break?

    Barguil was pretty definite about it.
    All very strange, no idea what he was trying to acheive
    He's a dick.

    Is it just me that prefers these sawtooth medium mountain stages to the big Alpine and Pyrenean stages?

    Both channels are in hyper fawning mode over him.
    You would think he was a multiple GT winner.
    Quite vomit inducing

    If these front 4 stay away and Pidcock wins he won’t be popular!

    Really don’t want the GC group to catch the break but it looks inevitable.
