    Another nice little tester straight after the rest day!

    A slightly odd stage on paper, pretty much downhill for the first 50km, straight into a Cat 3 which is 3km @ 9%, then another 30km of descent onto a 50km or so stretch of flat road before the 2 Cat 1's, 14.8km @ 7.6% and 11.5km @ 9.6%.

    It looks like both of those last 2 climbs have steeper ramps though, with the last one keeping a nice 12%+ bite right until the end.

    Bernal to demolish the field in awe-inspiring fashion? The bookies seem to think so...

    Campenaerts was a non starter today, had an injury to his leg from the other day I think.

    🚴‍♂️

    Kelly sounds in good form today. A lot more lively and talkative.

    Delighted to see him win the other day, he's been so aggressive in recent times that it really felt like he'd earned it.

    Dan Martin as part of the break. A couple of decent climbers like Moscon with him

    Free ride for Ineos so hopefully they stay away. Bike exchange doing the work in the peleton

    Theyre gonna need a lot more than 4 minutes at the base of the first climb


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,704 ✭✭✭✭ dastardly00


    Dan looks in good form but Bike Exchange are putting pay to his chances of contesting for the stage victory.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,989 ✭✭✭✭ retalivity


    Bernal down to 2, Caruso on his own


  • Registered Users Posts: 151 ✭✭ this.lad


    This climb is on rouvy, for anyone who is interested!

    Did it over Christmas, killer.

    For late readers, Passo San Valentino.

    Dan looks in good form

    He's working his arse off in this break anyway, very few contributors to the break despite the gap reducing :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,704 ✭✭✭✭ dastardly00


    I'm mostly listening to the TV commentary rather than watching, but it seems like Dan & Moscon are doing the majority of the work in the breakaway?

    The 2 of them appear to have dropped the rest


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,010 ✭✭✭ mr spuckler


    Whatever about how the stage plays out it's great to see such aggression from Dan. Just completely split the break with that acceleration :D

    Well, he's now the only one doing any work. Moscon and Movistar rider (Pedrero) just sitting in behind him.

    Remco having the craic now the pressure is off


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,255 ✭✭✭ Dodge


    Gap came down to about 2’20 (quickly from 4 minutes) but it’s 2’40 now

    No flat left, downhill and then back up a monstrous climb

    Very few domestiques left for any team (inc bike exchange while done all the work)

    Can Dan climb the final climb faster than Bernal? Let's hope so! and faster than the other 3 breakawayers too!

    crash few down


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,010 ✭✭✭ mr spuckler


    Big crash! Looked like Remco went slightly over the barriers trying to avoid it...he looks shook now too.

    Remco would be getting flashbacks from that


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,202 ✭✭✭✭ Enfilade


    Remco nearly over the armco there towards the back of it.

    🚴‍♂️

    It looked like Vlasov down to me but Hatch didn’t mention him
