I love how Movistar is now better at cobbled races than the mountain ones.

I don't know which team needs to get the loser award today too, too many possibilities.

Trek maybe with their gimmick in the beginning of the broadcast and then waiting a bit before helping Lotto to chase.
UAE with those Chasse Patates instead of just helping the peloton close down the gap.
All those teams apart from Jumbo in the break that don't seem to know those guys in Yellow and Black.
Alpecin for betting on Hermans just to win the sprint for 4th place with Philipsen.
All those other teams that didn't want to help Lotto chasing till it was too late. Thinking about Bora, Bahrain, Israel, Jayco (ok Obrien did for a bit but too late) and even QS who all had a somewhat fast guy and a domestic still in the group. Guess they all prefer getting 19th over a 7th place or something like that. Ridiculous, but to as expected.

FDJ also kinda messed up in the group once Lazkano and Kristoff were caught, despite having numbers. At least EF went on the attack.
