    Quick thread on this , 5km to go for the women coming to a 3km climb all the big names ready to launch.

    Barring a shocker I can see the mens race playing out the same later on.

    Can Niewiadoma get this, i thought she attacked way too early when her team mate was still at the front, strange tactics


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,183 ✭✭✭✭ Enfilade


    Podium again for Ludwig, unlucky. She picked the right wheel to go with there in the sprint.

    Seeing that now that climb could be hard enough if raced hard to cause some guys problems later on maybe?

    Not a fan of the Total kit, might have worked better with blue bibs. The red and white are awful.

    A nice relaxed start to the race :pac:

    I've said it before on here, but I can't understand why Victor Campenaerts doesn't wear sunglasses.

    I forgot mine one of the evenings earlier this week and wasn't 5 minutes up the road before I was stopped washing a fly out of my eye.

    I'm on Eurosport so maybe it's not the same, I have a little chat/speech icon in the top right beside the cast one. You can tap that and change it?

    I have to do that if I go outside to the garden etc and come back into the house, the language for some reason changes to ambient.

    I'm liking the Alpecin Fenix "Mercier" tribute kit. Just a shame that the white shoe and sock combo looks like abattoir wellies.

    Wife thinks it’s horrific but I’m close to buying it though the €20 postage is holding me back.

    The amount of pressure on MVDP to win this stage must be unreal but if anyone can do it, it's him

    I just keep thinking that it looks like a vintage Wexford GAA jersey :pac:

    Who's to say that wasn't Merciers original inspiration?

    I thought the Mercier kit was for the presentation only, didn't realise they were wearing it for the race

    Absolute clown held out a large cardboard sign while not looking at the peloton coming up the road, knocked down about half the group.

    Think there might be some Gaudu fans out there.


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


    Fool with a sign stood out on the edge of the road, back to the action, gurning at the cameras. Hit Tony Martin and took 3/4 of the peloton down


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 14,503 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Darkglasses


    Now I don't mean to sound like a traditionalist, but that blue tire Jumbo Visma have is absolutely horrible.
