    Another interesting day ahead, should be one for the break again, however the way Roglic is feeling don't be surprised to see him attack again on the last climb that peaks 8km out.

    The finish is a lot steeper than it looks like in that profile above as well, see Dani Moreno's win in 2013

    Short stage. Plenty of action hopefully.

    Only five in the breakaway with a short two-minute lead. The peloton want this... quite different from yesterday!

    Edward Planckaert (Alpecin-Fenix), Jonathan Lastra (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA), Magnus Cort (EF Education-Nippo), Joan Bou (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Harm Vanhoucke (Lotto Soudal)

    Cant see past Roglic for this stage but the team will have to put him in the right place as positioning is everything

    would suit carapaz if he was on form

    Cort making the Peloton work harder than they thought they'd need to

    Magnus Cort looking determined. How confident will Roglic be descending here?

    Great finish

    That was brutal watching Cort Nielsen being swamped by the vanguard of the peloton... he was swerving so much he nearly was going backwards by the end.

    Top 5

    1. Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma)

    2. Enric Mas (Movistar Team), +3''

    3. Miguel Angel Lopez (Movistar Team), +5''

    4. Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious), +7''

    5. Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers), s.t.

    Squeaky already looks home and dry, and with both Aranburu and Philipsen gone home, looks like Jacobsen just has to stay upright to win points jersey. With Carthy and Valverde gone, Bardet battered, Landa Bernal and Aru looking off the pace, its Roglic's race to lose, assuming he can continue to hold off Mas and the typically inept Mobiestar crew (he should).

    My courageous suitcases aren't too courageous so far.. ..

    I got lucky with superman Storer winning 2 stages and I backed him purely from the L'Ain win a few weeks ago. So thats 500 points. I lost Carthy too so he would have been adding to gc points every day had he been up there. Padun has been the dud in my picks after that only scored 38 points so hopefully he has a stage a 2 in him or a decent finish on a few. Jakobsen is money in the bank if he can take green to the end.

    On the race itself, FDJ have had a shocker. Démare is still there but not sure for what and the rest of the team haven't been in breaks and Israel have been quiet too with only 5 lads left.

    I picked 'Jose' Herrada by mistake instead of his more accomplished brother... Christ on a Bike! Maybe they have a sister called Mary, just to complete the picture. 😀
