Analyses show that everyone is riding slower than last year, it's just that the rich teams came out of the Corona crisis much better than the poor teams because they could keep trainers, food scientists, masseurs etc employed. This explains the dominance of a few teams with solid sponsors: quick step, jumbo, Ineos, Bora.

Sure, but should we not just be a bit suspicious that all of Jumbo are suddenly way ahead of even ineos?

Put the Dauphine on, there are 6 Ineos riders on the front of the peloton in case you missed them.

Remember that two of them are Thomas and Porte though. Surprised one of them hasn't crashed already.

Are they played on the Eurosport stream too? Might be falling foul of ofcom rules if so

Ah yes Mohoric, clearly a good way to dispel rumours about your team doping is to celebrate your win with a gesture used by *checks notes* Lance Armstrong?

Is there some place I can watch for free, legally?

TV2 lost the contract for the Giro to Discovery, and I'm not exactly enthusiastic about a million billion commercials.

I know you said free, but GCN+ is 25% off a year sub at the moment, so itís $38. I was reluctant to pay but itís very worth it.

I reckon there was maybe a cheeky squeeze of the brakes from kamna.


Also what the gently caress was the point of ineos going full Choo Choo just to drop Doumulin?

I figured they were trying to put Yates under pressure to test him after his crash

UCI have just dropped the requirement for teams with 2+ positive covid cases to drop out, and also appear to be allowing riders with positive cases to remain in the race. Iím sure thatíll end well.

I still canít get over the fact that before this week, all the commentary was saying about how Jumbo and Ineos were going to absolutely send it on this stage, because Pogís team is so bad it would put him under a lot of pressure. And then he justÖrode off the front without any of his team

I think Cort is my favourite rider:

"When I win like this, there is a small ritualÖ I have to go home in the shower, where I put Rammstein on very loud. Then Snapchat comes up while I skip around the room - naked.
Then I make the helicopter (swinging a penis in circles, red.). It goes right out to the closest friends, and then they know that it is going very well.
But that only happens with the big victories. The tour. The Vuelta. Otherwise, I do not film myself naked while I stand and swing with it."
