We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.

I think there's a chance for someone to lose big if they crack early so I think Ineos will try and murder train fairly early to see.

Also watching the highlights I think that's the happiest I've heard Sean Kelly? Cracking jokes and everything

If he smashed his chin on the floor they're probably concerned about whiplash at least.

I keep waiting to see a massive group of GC contenders dropped off the back. Like, we're already stretching the definition of "peloton" now.

It's insane that this makes yesterday's first hour look tame. And we're already 90 minutes in now

The break is still trying to form on the 2nd climb. The peloton is smashed to bits and I have no idea where anyone is.

German Eurosport has technical difficulties today btw - their first three commentators are not generally audible, leaving only the color commentator (who usually only talks about castles and cuisine, etc). They've now called up two additional commentators, probably at home. One of them just said that he doesn't have a feed during ad breaks, because he's watching the race on TV. lol

This does not make the race more readable, in case you're wondering
