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



Dickie Carapaz is going nuts on this descent, putting more time into Hirschi

it'd be more "totally normal" if they did the old Richie Porte train thing where he did this and then finished second on the stage ahead of every actual GC rider

Heís out-climbing perennial nearly men who always get out-climbed (and who had to race to the top yesterday). Itís not really that strange.

also blowing yourself up on a single climb with zero regard for GC position is different from climbing in a way to try to actually win the race


(which is why it was so ridiculous in the early Sky days when Richie Porte would do this and then also finish ahead of every Non-Froome GC rider)

Does Carapaz give Kwiatowski the win for his pacing up the climbs? I hope so

Roglic looked so strong on that gravel section

They looked so happy at the finish. You can't begrudge them that sort of celebration together for most of the last km.

Yeah think of how many personal wins he's sacrificed to tow froome up a climb. Still, one of the best paid riders in the peleton so not all bad.


KOM points are for fastest up the climb Saturday which should be cool. Assume Carapaz is going to bring a road bike and soft pedal till the base now

And lol:
