    Pinot Vs UAE

    It will end up in the usual way: Pinot vs Pinot.

    Pinot starting to look a bit worried. May have overdone it through the fans. Still holding his lead though.

    Harper looks done in the case. Pidcock ups the pace and Barguil follows. Be interesting to see if Barguil can hold his wheel on the descent, can’t think what his downhill skills are like.

    If Pidcock takes the win from Pinot he won’t make it out alive

    UAE look done behind, still a few there but have left Jumbo to do the work.

    Pinot has increased his gap to 32” but I think he may have got caught up in the atmosphere and gone too deep.

    Descent not really fast enough for Tom to make time back

    Edit - he’s losing the wheel in the chase for some reason

    Pidcock not enhancing his reputation as a stellar descender, this Tour.

    That didn’t look like 50kph descending to me.
