Absolutely insane shape by Castro, beating these guys on a completely flat course..

Ok, Primoz is nuts. This guy seriously has potential to hit it in a GT sometime.

Edit: Whoops, I thought Rogliz won with 36 on Castro. :lol:

I wonder how long that police moto man had switched off for? Roglic already being paced by him when we saw it.

Having said that, not Roglic's fault and he was always likely to put in a top 3 ride on this stage anyway to be fair. I think Castroveijo would rightly have cause for complaint though if Roglic had won the stage.

This. He is really, really bad. And after "working on his position over the winter".

I would prefer Roglic to win GC and obviously he didn't make the moto drive like that, but Kwiatkowski has every right to be very annoyed. A five, ten, fifteen second gap could in theory be overcome by a good Ardennes rider on the steep hill finish. 20 seconds plus, almost certainly not. Roglic would still be favourite, but being given a leg up from favourite to near certain winner is no small thing.

He has been a bit of a lucky boy with the motos. When he attacked Martin yesterday, he also got a very helpful slipstream, leading to Dan gesticulating at the motorbike to get lost. He'd still be in the lead now anyway, of course.

If we conssider the fact that he has been pretty bad on the 2 stages before the ITT it's actually a good result.

I had thought that 14th at 35 seconds was a bit sub-par for Ryan Mullen. In fact he had a mechanical that forced him to stop and another that stopped his power meter from working.
