A strong performance by Froome, beyond the victory (and in bad weather). He will be the favorite of the Tour as always

One of the cyclinghub guys is more clueless than Kirby. And that takes some going. At least other is decent.
Both of them are pretty bad to be honest (if it's the Dane and the Scot)
Norwegian I think? How come they've started chatting over the stream anyway? I'm back to hunting down streams "manually" now since I like to actually hear the race noise.

Dane. Jesper.

Chapeau to Froome. I really didnt expect anything like that today.
i did. he was over 17' down. no one was going to chase him and he'd definitely be the strongest against folks in the break. TJ did waaayyy too much work helping them get away IMO and imploded.

Well they aren't getting paid for it.
What about giving some credit to a guy who provide a HD stream without understandable commentary ? So he wants to add more value by covering the stream with his comments. Sounds pretty brave and nice to me. But you would probably be better at this job.. And as well said. For free.

There are two.

They only do this because there is no English broadcasting for the Tour de Romandie. In every other race they will again just stream the Eurosport commentary.

I appreciate their effort, but seriously... One of them just can't shut up and 50% of what he says is rubbish. I'd rather listen to the Norwegian narrators (and I don't speak a single word of Norwegian !!).

Wow, that was pretty close in the end
Not really, Froome eased up a lot towards the end.

But I doubt he would have been able to drop Quintana, Pinot and co if he had been a factor on GC
I agree. I actually think Quintana could have ridden him down today if he was a GC threat. Instead he was content to defend his lead (which was the smart move)

I swear Dumoulin was nowhere to be seen but still saved his 5th for quite some margin. :eek:
He was. Came back a couple of times when the big climbers looked to each other.

He rode a really smart race.

Quintana rode defense all day. I suspect if he had needed to ride down Froome, he could have. Majka you suck.
Majka really doesn't like bad weather but this was just rubbish. He was in very good form on stage 2, but he was just dead today... Hope his form picks up in the next week. I expected at least a top 5 in the Giro if not a podium... Hmmm &#128528
