Great, Sanchez wins with the help of a motorycle.
Would have won regardless.
He obviously has a better sprint than Bennett but if it wasn't for that motorcycle Bennett would have gotten into his wheel - no doubt about it.

There were 5 Astanas in the main group. What a team they have this year and Fuglsang isn't even there.
Sky do that and they ruin cycling
Sky has been unfortunately doing this for years, actually.. And not on some "minor" classics and freaking Tour of the Alps but on TDF and the main stages races on the calendar.

It might sound unfair, but even if Astana is surprisingly stunning this season, we still have not bridged the red line. QS on the classics tho.
 
The main difference is that if sky had such a team they would use it to guide froome to the finish without him putting his nose in the wind even once. Astana has used it to win three out of four stages with three different riders.

Pinot is struggling
Not really.

What a dumb route by the way, it'a practically watching the same stage each day.
Uh, what?!

Other than being short mountain stages, they have been quite different so far. I certainly haven't seen a 14.6km @ 6.5% climb today, nor a steep MTF. And the first stage was quite different to this one as well.

Aye sure, if sky had been winning multiple stages on a race everyone would be loving that...do folk realise what they type sometimes
