Gaudu is done swings to his right, MAL is not looking in front and crashes into Gaudu. Valverde is in the process of getting dropped, Pinot is now in front looks back and accelerates. All normal.

btw about Gaudu, good to see him finally step up again.. it doesn't show in the result, but he was better than Bernal today for the first time since ages :razz:

(yes i know Bernal just came back from injury, but still)

What surprised me was that Egan was already much than better Moscon, despite only riding in his third race in more than two months.

Poor Moscon. Looks like he has to do China, too. :D For now he is on the startlist.

Just looking at the Turkey tour and see that Hodeg finished 4th on stage 1, same time as Richeze, and 2nd on stage 2. Yet he is in 88th place on GC, 20 seconds down on everyone. Puzzled.

Probably a 10 second penalty for something

A faith worse than breaking the collarbone. It's such a terrible race. Even worse than Abu Dubai Tour.

5 flat sprint stages and a boring hill top finish in literal smog.

Chapeau Pinot! :) Been showing good form all week.
Superman will look where he's cycling in future. David "more stiches then the Bayeux Tapestry" Gaudu showing also some of his promise. FDJ getting some results from their promising youngsters.

What a bizarre start list for Gran Piemonte. A sprinters race with massive WT participation, including both QS and Bora with their abundance of top sprinters, and almost no sprinters are taking part. You really know that it is the end of the season when you look at that field of climbers and puncheurs preparing for Lombardia.

Is Guardini the fastest sprinter in the race?

CN at their best.
eg. Astana - 11 LUTSENKO Alexey, 12 BIZHIGITOV Zhandos, 13 FOMINYKH Daniil, 16 MOSER Moreno and 17 TLEUBAYEV Ruslan - 5 riders who are enjoying the Tour of Turkey at the moment.

If broken clocks can be right twice a day, CN can have an occasional lapse my friend :) .

for 'occasional' read 'frequent'
Movistar Team - 5 more riders who will not be there
91 VALVERDE Alejandro, 92 CARAPAZ Richard, 93 LANDA Mikel, 96 SEPULVEDA Eduardo, 97 SOLER GIMENEZ Marc
if CN want to publish start lists they should at least try to be accurate. The list says

The Tour of Turkey started on October 9, so no excuse for Astana.
Movistar published their team on October 9, so no excuse there.
