He wasn't but it's all back together again.
Roglic dropped the ball again, there.

In fairness, if crosswinds are too strong in ski-jumping they're not allowed to jump.

Jumbo missed an echelon in the Tour too (or was it 2018?). One that came back together. That's the problem with the Dutch, they just don't understand wind.

He's starting to feel it - 35seconds over the peloton now. Not going to make it with that finish.

DQS with yet another incredibly strong performance.
Unbelievably consistent across the board.

Did Carlton just quip about a fire in a block of flats?

Yes. Whether or not it was a fire I don't know but there was certainly enough smoke to suggest it might have been.

Excellent win that and Bennett looking very good on a difficult uphill sprint. Could do well at the Worlds but will struggle for team support.

Definitely a fire, as opposed to a "barbecue":

Was obvious when it came on screen what was happening. Well, to everyone apart from Carlton... :roll:
