Good stage, should have had a 3rd circuit of the 'mountain' to sort it out even further!

Happy JTL has taken the leaders jersey. Hope he can keep it now.
Can't see anyone being able to be honest. Plus, JTL knows tomorrow's stage like the back of his hand.

A good looking race. Tough job keeping the roads clear in densely populated country, but it makes for some good parcours with ever winding roads and some good digs.

Yeh, König wheel sucking it in.:rolleyes:

Indeed, thats the biggest issue - particularly with a large proportion of the population still not really understanding what a bike race is!

The police & NEG do an excellent job though on what is only a rolling road closure.

Now the Sky fans know why everyone was moaning during the Tour. :D
Because all they wanted to see during the tour was JTL?

Don't blame them to be fair. He's the Federer/Woods/Messi of bike racing.

Now idea how people see problem with this win by Konig ?

NetApp is going to merge with Ednura next season, right ? :D

It was all a set-up :p

On the contrary. There didn't seem to be any unity between them. Maybe König was afraid of JTL, maybe JTL didn't offer him the win, maybe the merger takes effect only next year, anyway I did expect König to help more once the climb was over.

of course not. konig only wants the stage win. why would he care if he wins with 2 or 18 seconds?

Everyone is afraid of JTL! :D
 
Yeah an Endura-NetApp 1-2, should be no worries.
Nice to see Caerphilly do it's job by chopping the peloton
into bite size pieces.
Good little echelon episode, too.
Now, did anybody spot Luke Rowe's brother, Matt, this year?
Last year he was Santa, this year more your Mohammed Ali.:D
 
hopefully they ride hard tomorrow although i expect alot presure on the endura team now but garmin tend to play fair and i expect they will do their share of the work.

JTL had no issues with the netapp rider after race, to be fair just keeping with JTL on climb was good going he took to turns on the run in iv seen worse wheel sucking.

I'd take anything above 3/1 for JTL for this stage he will know how to pace his attacks, cant wait see hi mat top level hes an exciting rider.

Been great for TOB to get big names like basso and sanchez over too.
