    But the tour tracker says 44.8 kph which is only 9%

    Might be a Kirby mistake

    There was a stage like this (possibly a mountain stage) last year or the year before where it went nuts from the gun to get everyone excited and then fizzled out to nothing.

    May have spoken too soon let's hope so!

    Even if there is wind, who is strong enough to force a split?

  • I still get the impression most of them really C.B.A. Teams are sending riders out, as a ‘breakaway’ who are only ever going to get mullered. No one ( G.C. talking ) is going for the kill.

    Here we go, not sure Ineos have the firepower without Rowe though.

    Amador dropped along with van barle.

    Renaat (HE'S BACK ON THE MOTO) is getting *very* excited.
  • Several gaps in the front group already

    Gesink mate. Come on. Echelon #3. FFS.

    Yates stupidly doing his usual trick of sitting at the back meaning JA is nailing it but he's managed to move up.

    Bernal flexing with eating whilst riding ahead of an echelon...

    Pogacar misses the front group. No other obvious omissions.
  • Gesink must have been given the first week off. First of the Jumbos to go backwards in every big moment so far.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 61,011 Lives Here
    Mollema caught behind.
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 11,164
    Trientin caught out! Even better for Sagan

    Not much support for Bernal if he gets a problem now.
  • DeadCalmDeadCalm Posts: 3,858
    Pogacar and Landa caught out.
