    147 km of possibly knocking lumps out of each other. Two very tough laps in the second half, including Superga

    Interesting inconsistency with the GCN commentators. Nibali, at 37, is referred to as an "old man" and therefore at the fag-end of his career ( even if he wasn't retiring). No such concerns about Cav yesterday who is now 37 too.

    Weather very hot on the stage already - probably over 30 already

    It looks like MvdP reckoned he needed to be in the break to have a chance here. Climbs may be short but not short enough for him.

    Yeah he was very invested in trying to stay away there, he was out front for what 12km or so?



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,896 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    Yates is the favourite. From nothing other than time gaps really. No evidence he is back to 100%.



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,896 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    Well Yates must fancy it. In the break.

    Don't think i've ever seen a man move as much on a bike as Vansevanant does

    Big Tom abandoned

    I wonder is his head still in cycling. Heard an interview with him after jumbo won a stage and he didn't sound that enthusiastic about being getting personal results



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,778 ✭✭✭Mefistofelino


    His back has been giving him problems for the past week.

    With Bardet gone I’d like to see Guillaume Martin do something today. I’d like to see him podium overall, I like his style of racing.

    Bora have destroyed this already!

    What are Bora doing here?

    Landa and Carapaz along for the ride with them from the looks of it. GC day so.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,152 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    What is this nonsense with Wiggins and the Coppi monument doing on when the race is kicking off??

    EDIT: Anyone else's sound on Eurosport/GCN gone funny? Everyone is high-pitched??



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,152 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    Carapaz on his own already. A Dunbar would have been handy!



  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Very much Dunbar terrain, he's rode a decent amount of the Italian classics with Moscon in the past.



  • Registered Users Posts: 20,048 ✭✭✭✭neris


    That climb is savage



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,330 ✭✭✭deise08


    Crikey. They'll have to do that a second time?

    Wow.

    How will the sprinters fare out with them climbs?



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,111 ✭✭✭mr spuckler


    I have to admit this is a baller move by Bora, I really hope it's not a Movistar type move of recent years where they just peel off with 20km to go and you wonder why bother!

    Hell of a stage though, love to see this kind of aggression early in a GT mountain stage.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,152 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    Some ride by Kelderman for the first lap, some heart by Lopez to stick to this so far!



  • Registered Users Posts: 20,048 ✭✭✭✭neris


    Hatch gets a bit over excited when a rider looses a wheel length.

    This just looks like torture for the riders. It’s brilliant for the fans though!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 20,048 ✭✭✭✭neris


    Pink Jersey out the back and carapaz is going like a demon. This is a great stage



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,152 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    This is fantastic



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,799 ✭✭✭griffin100


    I’d love to see a shot from the laughing group. I’d say the sprinters are dying. Might be some outside the time limit today if the commissars apply the rules.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,778 ✭✭✭Mefistofelino


    Pozzo going well, now he's been released from his sprint lead out duties



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,896 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    And the bookies get it right again.



  • Registered Users Posts: 14,152 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    Tight at the top on GC but then some massive gaps...basically a top 8, then Lopez, then the rest.

    You can't take a bike change from in front it has to be from behind.
