That must have been a really frustrating situation for Costa. First, Ineos think it's their job to decide who can break away and who can't so they spread out across the road, which meant that Costa had to wait an extremely long time until he could find physical space to break away.

Then he almost catches the break on the steep wall which of course does not have a descent so he has to give up...

Looks like the KOM competition could get very interesting later on in the race.
Funniest scenario would be that KOM competition would be decided in Champs-Elyseés stage which has two 4th category climbs.
Lotto Soudal's defending it nicely so far.
We'll see when some pure climbers jump into the mix.
the new jersey sponsor would surely like it to be decided at the Champs-Elyseés. It would mean it's a matter of point.

Watch Rui have a fit when his DS told him the others wont wait becasue he doesnt contribute to breakaways !!

UAE will be out for revenge

Will the most exciting action on this stage be Flecha on the moto trying to interview every DS in the cars whilst trying not to fall off?
