What a completly snoozefest! Looked good on paper though.
Is this an example of Newton's Third Law of Stage Races, for every exciting stage there will be one that is dull, thus maintaining balance?

Crap from Sky, managing to both get their GC rider working, whilst providing their sprinter with 0 help.
I thought I saw Swift being brought up to the front by someone. I think Froome was staying out of trouble until the 3k mark.

Matti is not there to win bunch sprints. He was present on stage 1 because he saw an opportunity but it's not at all an agenda of his.

I took the 'over' bet on how long it took this thread to get to 100 posts. (22 hours.) Beers are on me.

I m doubling down on whether it gets to 200 before the end of the Vuelta.

Sky better do a better job of leading out Swifty than the other day.
As predicted no chance, Sky still using the same Cr**y tactics as in the tour. Keep Froome safe up the front until 3km to go and vanish leaving the sprinter to his own devices. All well and good for someone with more experience but up against these sprint trains Swift has no chance.
