    Couldn't even sit on the saddle. Think it was Van Hooydonck's bike. 18cm height difference.

    I really miss the days when a wheel could be changed in 5 seconds.

    All these bike changes are too messy.

    Disaster for JV

    Rog on his own at the back of the lead bunch. Surely Laporte has to drop back. Everyone else is already behind Rog helping Vingegaard

    Bettiol subbing in for the entire UAE team for the day

    Blimey is the Tour being handed to Pogacar on this stage? This should make for a good episode of Cycle to Survive.

    Did I see Thomas #21 in the group with Vingegaard???



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,866 ✭✭✭✭retalivity


    Yup, and Roglic behind all of them.

    I would not be surpirsed to see Pog win this stage, looks so strong

    I knew Roglic would be destroyed today, I even posted it in the main TDF thread! It's nice to be right occasionally. Great stage

    Is it wrong that I'm praying for Pog to puncture?



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,234 ✭✭✭✭dastardly00


    I think Yates is in the Vingegaard and Thomas group also



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,763 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    Fair play to Gaudu and Vlasov. Both still up there (excluding Pog of course).

    Great stage but pity to see GC decided in stage 5



  • Registered Users Posts: 450 ✭✭Morris Garren


    Quintana to take it in a sprint.... feck, anything could happen at this stage!



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,763 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    Yeah none of this bodes well for the Tour as a whole. Makes for a great day but not a great remaining 2 and half weeks.



  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 20,572 Mod ✭✭✭✭Brian?


    Tour is done as a contest today, mental.

    Mind you Jumbo have no choice but to try and 1, 2 Pog to death in the mountains so might provide some fun all the same.



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,234 ✭✭✭✭dastardly00


    Schachmann, with his jersey half unzipped, looks fcuked



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,763 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    Most of those GC guys were only 12 seconds behind Pog.



  • Registered Users Posts: 13,234 ✭✭✭✭dastardly00


    Carlton Kirby is one happy man



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators Posts: 8,763 Mod ✭✭✭✭mewso


    Rog the big loser. Over 2 minutes.

    "Si-mo Clarke, as I think he's known as"

    THEN WHY THE FCUK HAVE YOU BEEN CALLING HIM SI CLARKE FOR THE LAST DECADE???

    I can't remember the last time I went into a TDF looking forward to the two big favourites battling it out neck and neck to Paris, and it pretty much happening. In hindsight, you could say 2020 was exactly that, but Pog was not really on anyone's radar as an immediate TDF winner that year from what I can remember. It always seems to be either one team choking the life out of the race (looking at you Team Sky) or one/ more favourites having a disaster of a day early doors.

    Orla's voice is going early in this tour.
