Would've said Fuglsang's gonna take this mountain stage and the yellow jersey, but given he crashed yesterday I'm not sure whether that harmed his shape or not!

I don't think he got hurt at all.

When he spoke to Danish TV yesterday evening he said: "Well, I think we were riding at 120 kph an hour on a descent and my front wheel just disappeared from under me... No, we were riding 20 kph uphill and a rider in front of me went to the left when I went to the right, so I got tangled with his rear wheel and tumbled into the ditch."

So low speed and a soft landing, even if Nick Schultz was also involved. He (Fuglsang) did get a cut on his elbow but he didn't think anything of it.

It could happen. Looks like a really hard stage that probably won't see any attacks until the last 6-5 km. There's a point in the profile that goes from 9 percent down to under 6, which might be where we see some of the separation.


OK, well it won't be Tom. I'm glad he's not pushing through the pain. So, I'm actually hoping Nairo finds his legs again.

The final climb today is Fuglsang country.

No steep sections (steady 7 % all the way) and 19 k long, means his diesel engine can just keep going and going and going and going and going and going and going and going.......

.....Pinot will attack, Quintana will attack, Bardet will attack, Buchmann will attack, and every time people will think Fuglsang has dropped, but he just keeps going and going and going..... :P

I think you've confused Fuglsang with the Ineos train. :)

In my opinion it's between Nairoman, Fugggslang, Yateseseseses or Thinard Pinault

Manny Bookman, as Kirby likes to call him, has also looked strong and Dauphiné is his race more than any othe race.

A bit strange to say of a man who was this close to winning the Flèche Wallonne.

Why is everything always being attributed to Nibali? Even when he is not in the race...

He's just getting rid of the competition before TdF. :)

It was **** Pucchio who also almost took Nibali down.

If anything it's Ineos magic.

I’m not so sure. Logically a long, steady climb without very steep sections should suit him but has he ever shown it? In the spring campaign this year he was tearing it up on short to medium lenght, quite steep climbs. We have no indications of his level on such long climbs.

Five riders have been reported as non-starters this morning: Davide Ballerini (Astana), Jens Debusschere and Mads Würtz Schmidt (Katusha-Alpecin), André Greipel (Arkea-Samsic) and Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb).


Edit - I think the bookies are not taking bets on Ala being in the break today. :)

Edit 2 - http://inrng.com/2019/06/criterium-dauphine-stage-7-preview-7-laux/#more-35863
This should be Thibaut Pinot‘s day but word is he’s caught a cold ...


Pinot's gone down with the sniffles so he might not be 100%.

This break won't be allowed any time at all. (Lutsenko and Woods are in it)

there's always gotta be something! Not that I expected him to win today's stage anyway - I'd still prefer Adam Yates or even Fuglsang here.

Poels has undergone full bot conversion. Only interested in domming for Froome and other Brits. No longer interested in winning. Sad but true. Similar happened to Porte and Boasson Hagen. Very difficult to deprogram a bot.
