The 4 behind look spent - the conviction is gone.

The front group has to start playing tactical games, if they are to get caught.

I think the other GC teams, are forcing BMC to do all the work today, so Porte is vulnerable tomorrow.


I get that from Sunweb for sure, but I feel like some of the sprinter teams should be working with BMC for what should probably be a bunch sprint judging by the profile.

Because the sprinters have probably not made it back yet...... I guess?

Because it's the only real chance for climbers this year...... otherwise they may as well all quit and hand him the jersey.

Kragh alone in front - Porte attacking in the favorites and out on his own - strong ride by him!

LRP smoked everyone on that short climb. Funny how Quintana just seemed to stop.

I was just writing stuff for Race Design Thread and Porte decided to go full gas for like 1km and vanquish like 30 dudes just behind him... okay?!?

Ok, can i call it a ridiculous perf or am i just dramatizing? I guess it's the latter... nevermind then.
