    Think Ineos have 6. Amador is in the front group.

    TdG annoys me so much.

    GC level engine.

    What a waste.

    There's going to be a race to be at the front as they approach the wind. The gap should come down quite quickly then.

    Strange commentary on ES today.
    "What on earth is TDG doing?"
    Followed by...
    "There will be a strong tailwind ahead."

    Both can be true, but surely they are answering their own question.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Bloody inconsiderate of Alaphilippe to wear a jersey that looks so similar to Jumbo's from a distance.

    48 kph means an 11% cut off. Not that I'm expecting it to be enforced. against a group.

    Meh, it's going to turn out to be another damp squib in terms of the GC. No sign of interest ahead of the direction change.

    This is the tour. Bora lighting up a stage means Buchmann should worry about whether he is 8th or 9th in this year's GC.

    There is another stretch which should be echelon territory.
