Tomorrow is going to be a fun one too I think, climbing from the get go with Plateau de Gileres placed a tempting distance for a long range attack at the end

Pretty sure Roglic wasn't even sweating on the last km. They need to check his body for android components.

I love show WvA is 21st in GC and 7th for the green while riding his rear end off for the team all tour long. Roglic seems to have a ton of energy left so jumbo-visma definitely could have gone for the double yellow-green. Oh well.

I also liked how Dutch TV commentators said he looked "very weak" yesterday and "got dropped very early on", I wanna have whatever these guys are smoking

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



Can't blame jumbo for going all in for yellow but yes in retrospect they could have easily let woot loose to get green, he'll win it in the future though

He did a break in a stage early on. It didn't stick, nobody could work out why he did it, and it nearly hurt his own sprinter. It was extremely de Gendt.

I would assume they could choose from a range based on the glasses sponsorís line.

I was just thinking about whether specific aero glasses would form part of marginal gains and so be enforced to save 0.02 Watts of effort when travelling over 40 km/h.

Lollin at how much Kirby hates the food in the French Alps.

Other point, how did the bike industry allow specialised to con them into through axles? Wheel changes take an age now.

According to the swiss side guy what you wear on your face doesn't really matter - eg visor vs sunglasses is essentially lost in the noise.
