Ok, we have 3 sprints today according to the profiles I've seen. How many have bonus seconds and is it the normal bonus seconds att he finish? TdS website is not very clear on it.

Edit -found on cyclingstage.com - Starting at kilometre 122, the Golden Kilometre serves two opportunities to gain time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds. The first three riders on the line take 10, 6 and 4 seconds.

3-2-1 seconds at the "Tissot KM Sprints" with 51.7k and 50.7k to go, 10-6-3 points at the "React Sprint" with 17.5 to go, according to the roadbook. So no points at the first two sprints, no bonus at the final intermediate one.
 
Looks like PCS never got Red Rick's memo about there being 50 climbers better than Van Aert.
Keep in mind this is before Ayuso beats Heras time up towards Angliru, since UAE hasn't won a Grand Tour in over 2 years! :D

while we are talking about stage profiles, can we please CONGRATULATE THE BRILLIANT TDS ORGANIZERS FOR

FINALLY CREATING STAGE PROFILES THAT END AT ZERO!!!

YES I WANT MY STAGE PROFILES TO MATCH UP WITH WHAT I SEE ON THE TV SCREEN - KMS to GO


No more stupid maths trying to figure out when the next climb is coming, just at a glance, profile says 40k to go, tv is at 43k to go.

THANK YOU SWISS GENIUSES

Oh, and of course its the Swiss that finally did this.

Pay attention ASO and RCS and Flanders guys
And cronoescalada and flamme rouge and whoever else makes profiles

How hard is this??

+a Tissot watch for the daily "overall winner", according to SRF. If two riders end up with a similar amount of seconds, it goes to the one which finished ahead at sprint #2.

Today it goes to Schär.


These fancy watches kids wear around their wrists these days. Back in my day, we just wore a clock around our necks.

Here's me in better times:
