    Stage underway nothing major happening by the looks of it. Flatish stage heading out towards the coast without Sam. Weather along the route is going to be El Scorchio by the looks of it


  • Simon Yates a non starter.

    EDIT: Sivakov now too.

    I might have fancied the break having a chance with the possible wind towards the finish but given there are only 3 out there they probably haven't a hope.

    Ah jesus LouLou!

  • Alaphilippe down there, and in no hurry to get back up. Looks to be the shoulder. Man's had a train wreck of a year.

    Just turned on eurosport to see alaphillpe been loaded into an ambulance. What happened to him?

  • Just a fall on a slight bend in the road, dust or a team mates wheel even. Looked to have rolled in the fall and they mentioned it was onto the shoulder he did in the tour of Flanders.

    Molano could have won that if he wasnt looking around for Ackermann

    Pedersen's lead-out was rubbish - he was dumped into the wind 200m to go, But it didn't matter as he didn't have the legs.

    He’s just not a great sprinter. A very fast finisher and obviously a great rider but he’s not a sprinter. He’ll have the green jersey wrapped up by the weekend though

    I like Pedersen as a rider and I will be happy to see him take Green in the absence of Bennett, but he was nowhere today. Probably needed to move up the peleton earlier too, gave himself too much to do to get a decent position before the lead out went.

    32 riders that started the Vuelta will not start tomorrow!!

    If I took nothing else from this stage it's the sad fact, no longer fan boy theory, that Sam would have had no issue regaining the green jersey and holding it to the end. His lead out man, who took some incredible lines today barely missed out on the win.
