    Pog to go balls out Pidcock style on the descent and total shit or bust tactics?

    Pog to go balls out Pidcock style on the descent and total shit or bust tactics

    is possibly his best option to get a gap.  I’m nervous

    I don’t think i have ever know a grand tour where nearly every single minute of every stage has been raced liked a loon… you usually get those dull sprinter stages that are exciting for last 10km… this has been madness, even the stages they probably expected to be quieter have interesting attacks and a narrative such as Cort going on a personal home jolly..

    They’re both pushing the absolute limit. Good to see the sporting element to it though.

    Pog did offer up the front to yellow at the top of the hill.

    Missed the Vingo ‘off’ on ITV4 did Pog slow down to let him catch?

    Missed the Vingo ‘off’ on ITV4 did Pog slow down to let him catch

    Vingo didn’t off, he just had a pedal strike but held it

    Pog then did come off and Vingo sat up and waited

    Thats mad, GCN commentary just said that if WvA wins this stage, he would have the polka dot and green jersey, wonder when that last happened?

    Nice gesture, but also cunning psychologically – Vingo would not have been able to stay away to the finish, and it now makes it much harder for Pog to stick the knife in perhaps.

    leffeboy

    It might have made it impossible for Pog to zoom off if Vingo now fell on the descent, but that’s about it.  I really doubt however that that was any part of the decision.  It just didn’t look like that
