How will they organise the neutralisation? They talked about "taking the time at the top of the climb", does that mean they'll stop a group to maintain the time? And will they at least allow Mads Würtz to drop all the way back to the peloton?


So... neutralised for 3 Ks? My French is not what is has been... or rather; it's exactly what is has always been.
 
I guess more riders will get back into the main peleton.

Unless the gruppetto - and other lose configurations of dropped riders - are also behind safety cars, and told to take it easy.

So are they just giving the break a couple of extra minutes now?

Doesn't look like it.
And I think the neutralisation might be over, the graphics has disappeared from the screen.
 
Surely the neutralisation is over for both groups by now... I suppose it makes sense that first the break was neutralised, allowing the peloton to get a little closer, and then the peloton was neutralised, allowing the break to get a little further away. Possibly with some overlapping between the neutralisations.

The time at the top of the climb and the time at the end of the neutralisation didn't seen the same to me anyway. Be interesting if anyone had exact figures on that.

What would they have done? Stopped the group that had gotten an advantage? Couldn't it simply have been that the riders were told that for those 3 Ks, they had to take it easy, but once that part was over they could go all in again?
