Roglic is my dark horse for the TDF if he rides for GC - He's an impressive rider.

Yeah, mine too. Still have some doubts over his 3rd week capacitiy and his ability to survive the stages with cobbles and wind and such.

And the fact that Lotto NL said he won't be going for the GC yet and they have Kruijswik in there. Now of course they might be bluffing a bit or at least try with dual GC leaders, but if Roglic will have to work for Kruijswik then you know that he is not going for the GC.

An interesting fact. Today's stage was ridden on the roads of a famous Slovenian amateur race called Marathon Alpe. In 2012 Roglič, almost 23 at the time, won that race. It was practically the beginning of his rise in the World of cycling. After that win he signed for Slovenian conti team Adria Mobil for the 2013 season. The rest is history. After six years he again takes the victory on the very same roads, but this time against the best cyclists in the World. What a journey it has been.

What a monster this guy is!! Impresive performance again.

It will be interesting to see if Lotto changes his initial speech of hunting stages at the Tour and at least starts to speak about a dual leadership between Rogla and Kruijswijk.

They also probably need some leadout guys for Dylan Groenewegen as well, so it will not be all in for GC like with Sky, Movistar and the likes.

Also, if anyone wants to watch a replay of today's stage.

Fight for white will be interesting, Pogačar vs Storer. 3s between them before the start of this ITT.

Tratnik is in the lead right now. Jack Bauer and Roglič are the only riders left that can beat his time IMO.

Pogačar vs Storer very close. I think Pogačar takes white for one second!
