Missed this. What happened with GT and Froome? Also, I see references to attacks from Roglic, Pogacar, Uran, etc., but WvA won. Did the climbers try and fail to break the peloton, resulting in a bunch finish? Or is WvA just a monster who stayed with the climbers?
 
To easy for who? Roglic nearly won a bunch sprint in Ceyzeriat if not for Bagioli.
There he was trying to prove his form, plus he was THE sprinter for the team. Now he is sure of his form and he knows bonus seconds probably won't matter in the end. Plus, Van Aert was the chosen man for the day. And Roglič was on duty to make sure no one got away (that is why he went after Uran). Tom and Steven had a job of leading out in the last kilometer. A really well executed tactic once again. And another win.

GT s.t., Froome again weak.

And yes, the climbers failed to break the peloton but the last ascend was not really that steep.

Froomey and his buddy seemed to be so involved in some conversation they dropped off the peloton for some privacy.

Van Aert monstered up the climb on the front of the peloton mostly, he didn't just "keep up".
 
Reactions: Andre
Van Aert is what Sagan used to be a few years back but with a killer instinct. A peak Sagan should have been there today contending for the win with Van Aert and Impey for sure.
At the moment Sagan is not at a peak... don´t know if he will be in form for the tour..
Bora had only Buchmann in the final group of 56 riders. Don´t know if Großschartner, Mühlberger and Kämna saved their energy or if it was really weekness.
