FFS someone needs to try something.
Cannondale gave it a rattle earlier on when there were some winds, but the road wasn't continuously exposed to a crosswind for long enough for anything to stick.

Bizarre that nobody has tried to establish a secondary break though.
They have a headwind now and the GC teams are going to keep a high tempo for position

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:
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.
“To be fair, English is full of booby traps for the unwary foreigner. Any language where the unassuming word fly signifies an annoying insect, a means of travel, and a critical part of a gentleman’s apparel is clearly asking to be mangled.”

Is the BMC yellow helmets thing optional? Because it would look awful on some teams, eg Astana, Lampre, Movistar...
It's optional, yes. Movistar actually wore it in 2013 during the last part of the first week and sort of looked nice.

Sure, but there's a hell of a lot of riders in the peloton with nothing better to be doing than grabbing some tv time and a one in a thousand chance of a stage win.

Hang on, is that second group a casualty of the winds earlier on, when Cannondale and then BMC hit the front for a while? Who is in it?
No one important.
I guess ILove, Sasquatch, me, and many more others would say otherwise.
