Le Pont de Claix – Superdevoluy 151km

All to race for on the final day, some hellish climbing on the Col du Noyer, 4km at over 10% should bring the race alive

    Early start today for the race and already underway
    More attacks and more chasing. This time Jérôme Coppel (IAM Cycling) and Dani Navarro (Cofidis) go clear and are chased by Bartosz Huzarski (Bora-Argon 18).

    Again, they are on the slowest race schedule. 35kph.
    Good for coverage.

    Break currently at 1'45". Sky won't have to do all the work here. They will get help from EQS since they'll want to give Dan Martin a chance of a podium finish and maybe have Alapillipe in mind for the stage.

    Which channel?
    Rai Sport 1 are due now, but I read the earliest live coverage is 1.45pm CET.
    In any case, at their current speed, we should get some of the first 1st cat climb as well.

    That was just when live video would be first available - when the various channels choose to start is up to them. In reality it doesn't seem to always happen at the stated time.

    Funny, cycling news saying it's super fast, 38-39kph. It's not exactly flat either

    Daniel Teklehaimanot took 1 point at the Côte de Saint-Laurent-du-Cros and leads the KOM classification now, just ahead of Pinot.
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 16,576
    Live now with 48.7kms to go and Stephen Cummings is off alone.
    Etix doing the chasing.

    Cummings attacks on the col de Moissière
  • big steve cumming with a nose bleed, it usually within the last 4k he attacks
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 16,576
    Only about 30-35 riders left in the yellow jersey group, but Sky have almost a full compliment.
    Stannard is still there and Etix are giving them an armchair ride.
