    Hilly day today with uphill finish. Most predicting a GC fight so I'm going to go for Valter to hang on to pink and surprise everyone. Maybe.

    Egan Bernal 7/1
    Gino Mader 9/2
    Ruben Guerreiro 11/2
    Bauke Mollema 12/1
    Remco Evenpoel 16/1
    Guilui Ciccone 20/1
    Dan Martin 20/1

    Nasty crash for Mohoric - obviously concussed but team were happy to put him back on the bike. It was Mohoric himself who decided it wasn't a good idea.

    Edit: Taken away by ambulance.

    Awful crash for mohoric, just as bahrain were blowing the race up


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,173 ✭✭✭✭ Enfilade


    Ah here should they be letting him back on the bike? Especially on a descent.

    🚴‍♂️



  • Registered Users Posts: 15,173 ✭✭✭✭ Enfilade


    Stretchered away with a collar on. Right call. No way was he fit to get back on a bike.

    🚴‍♂️

    That'll do nicely

    It's raining, should make the white stuff more fun, the last km is the steepest part of the day as well!


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,635 ✭✭✭✭ Inquitus


    Bouchard looking good for this, don't think the peloton will reel the whole break in.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,635 ✭✭✭✭ Inquitus


    Well the gap has tumbled, could be a GC day after all, it's going to be very close.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,743 ✭✭✭✭ neris


    Gonna be some finish


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,743 ✭✭✭✭ neris


    Sprint finish??


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,635 ✭✭✭✭ Inquitus


    Bernal very impressive!

    Very. Some recovery by Remco though.

    Evenepoel with a great recovery, some performance first few days back racing.
    He is a vastly superior TT rider than Bernal too so it makes it very interesting.
    Dan well in there too


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,010 ✭✭✭ velo.2010


    Hmm, Evenepoel struggling or DQ don't want the responsibility of the leaders jersey right now? I wonder...


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 18,595 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Brian?


    Dan fifth. Great ride

    If they could take pink they would.

    He wasn't really struggling, he's a diesel and Bernal is a petrol.

    Brilliant from Bernal.

    Although Dan didn't gain any time, he is in great form.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 18,595 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Brian?


    Brilliant from Bernal.

    Although Dan didn't gain any time, he is in great form.

    Looking good for a top 5 I reckon

    Yeah on his current form I think he could be in the top-5, before the TT in the final stage anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,923 ✭✭✭ Itziger


    Dan seems to have learned how to 'dosificar' his efforts in these last two years. I thought he was losing a few wheels there again today, but no, he finished strong again, like the day he managed to get back to Bernal.

    Part of me would love to see Remco win this but you'd have to wonder when they hit the really high stuff.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,743 ✭✭✭✭ neris


    Some power out of Bernal in the finish. The way he just powered pass the 2 lads like they were stopped


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,216 ✭✭✭ Daroxtar


    Great finish there. Bernal doing to everyone else what MVDP did to him at Strade Bianchi.

    Definitely not on NowTV, not sure about Amazon Prime. You've to either get a subscription for the Eurosport Player or a subscription to GCN Plus. I think GCN's app is much better, but obviously it's only for cycling.
