    Mind you, Sep is looking rather frisky...

    Ah marvelous. 75kms of Kirby.
    Where's the Valium?

    Left the room and came back to think the TV had switched to horse racing.
  • I'm please that no one has criticised my inclusion of Vanmarcke as five stars. I realise this is probaly due to it not being read or no one bothering to post about it, but I'm taking it as acceptance.

    I automatically interpreted it as "stars if they don't get a mechanical". Without that adjustment he's one star at most. So basically, he's one star.
    And thus it came to pass.
    Carlton described Vanmarke as "corrupting his bike", which seemed unusually insightful.

    Did the commissaire's car go over the bike of the rider who crashed in the break? Must have been close.

    No idea Baarle attacks so not him
  • ProssPross Posts: 33,508

  • JA makes his move
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 63,519 Lives Here
    Mmmm dangerous ja devrneyns join but Lotto chase,

    Jumbo chill
  • ProssPross Posts: 33,508
    No van Baarle, takes JA and another QS with him.
  • I'll say one thing, watching this race sober is weird :D
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 63,519 Lives Here
    Bardet takes naesen to the break and Baarle goes again QS respond
  • ProssPross Posts: 33,508
    Van Baarle looking very lively, gets caught and goes again straight away.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 63,519 Lives Here
    Degenkolb “anticipating” koppenberg
  • ProssPross Posts: 33,508
    Still a very big peloton. Riders clipping off and regrouping and van Baarle goes a third time.
  • ProssPross Posts: 33,508
    Decent gap now and has Bardet of all people for company.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 63,519 Lives Here
    JA looks great
  • mididoctorsmididoctors Posts: 12,908
    French combine in the ronde I think not
