    I hope I am wrong but Alaphilippe wont be able to hold the wheel of the other two up this climb. It’s a monster.

    Surely Bahrain Mclaren are just doing JVs job for them?

    the leading 3 had 2 mins advantage going into the last climb. But they seem to be arguing about something.

    12 mile climb tho – painful

    its only 8% average or something. Just a bit long. 😉

    2 minutes for the break, is that enough?

    Apparently they actually paved one of the ski slopes to take the road up the mountain. Mental!

    It’s just going to be a bore-fest train to the top isn’t it? 🙄

    Why are Bahrain on the front? All in for a Landa win?

    I hope Landa does go for it!

    Maybe Ellingworth is so used to having yellow coming out of the second rest day that he’s defaulted to Sky tactics?
    Except they haven’t got yellow.

    Break under 1 minute now. More likely to kick off in the GC bunch if there are time bonuses in offer.

    JA does seem to go from “up the front, looking great” to “off the back looking wrecked” in an incredibly short space of time!

    Unless something dramatic happens behind him, Carapaz looks like he’s got this.

    Someone has to attack from the GC group, Pogacar surely?

    Lopez is looking TOO good. As he’s from Astana, I can only conclude that they’re all still a bunch of cheating bastards.

    Bahrain Merida will be pleased how their game plan worked out.
    Always find it difficult to enjoy an Astana victory.

    A Colombian who rides for Astana. Unlucky Pogacar, I think a spectator got to him just at a vital moment.

    Alaphilippe has been given the combatively award. Presumably because he’s French and the president was in attendance.

    Thats crazy. By tradition it goes to the last man in the break and Carapaz was riding his socks off today
