I wonder if UAE would rather have O'Connor in yellow here, given the issues they've had controlling the race as (effective) leaders since the time trial.

Hes nearly 8 minutes down and things will kick off on the final climb at some point, even if Ineos just take it up for 2-3k before Pogacar drops them all.

I think UAE are trying to get the other teams to ride but they're basically telling them to go gently caress themselves.

It honestly seems like it. There is no way Hirschi is actually at anywhere near 100%, plus last I saw their whole team was still there.

Looks like theres only 40 or so riders left at the front of the peloton. 6 UAE riders still.

Btw, in case any of you missed it earlier, Nairo accepted a gel and a bottle from Higuita. So if/when he goes for the backstab, it'll be all the better

To be fair to RCS, it's Italian television which is the problem there (RAI)

I want to see Pog hulk out again on the climb but it's less fun if he just trundles past a spent Quintana. I want him to trundle past an angry Quintana.

The only thing that let him catch up was the drag from Higuita's massive balls.

Ok UAE have detonated themselves with 19km still to go. Unsure about this plan but I guess Pog's going to attack at the start of the steeper stuff?
