Is there even a remote chance of something happening today?
"Something" will definitely happen. Whether it's something interesting, I couldn't say. :D

Bouhanni out... Looks serious, he will be evacuated with an ambulance.

You can't evacuate a person, to evacuate a person means to give them an enema.
lol this is not solo english forum, give it a rest :rolleyes:
I think you lads are mistaking someone taking an opportunity for an off colour joke with someone being a ***. The pedantry was just an excuse for his bum joke.

evacuate
ɪˈvakjʊeɪt
verb
1.
remove (someone) from a place of danger to a safer place.
"several families were evacuated from their homes"
synonyms: remove, clear, move out, shift, take away, turn out, expel, evict More
2.
technical
remove air, water, or other contents from (a container).
"when it springs a leak, evacuate the pond"


Let the pedant try again.
It doesn't matter if the "definition" makes it look like you can use it — in reality it is wrong to use it in that context, although you'd need to be a native speaker to know that.

Anyway, even then it doesn't work. There wasn't any danger where he was to be evacuated from.
 
If there will be crosswinds closer to the line then there will definately be more action coming up.

It all depends on the possibilities the riders get.
Else it will be a dull sprint stage which it was designed for.
 
Without a breakaway ahead and no contenders to push in the second group, can't say there is motivation. The GC guys are controlling the tempo since there is no "dangling carrot" for the sprinters to chase after at this point.
