What an epic ride by Alaphilippe. Last 10km it was hard to watch because I was hoping so much that he would make it until the end.

Pinot- Bernal with 5s on the rest. not bad
I thought I knew how they measure gaps but those 5s have made me question my understanding of the rules. Is it not the gap from the backwheel of the last rider in the first group to the frontwheel of the first rider in the next group?
No. Its the gap from the front wheel of the first group, to the front wheel of the 2nd.

No way there were 5 sec. there but why not give Pinot 5 sec? Bernal just got lucky.
