Echelons in the men's race. Sagan, Ackermann, Selig, Declercq, Trentin, Van Aert, Wynants, Teunissen, Van Der Hoorn, Van Poppel, Rowe, Bol, Degenkolb, Stuyven, Pedersen, Theuns, Gaviria, Van der Poel, Van Schip, Terpstra is in the first group.

Quick-step messed up. Only Declerq is there.
 
Insane group. But very, very early in the race. It seems a bit unrealistic that they will last. Who is missing? Deceuninck*, Greg, EF boys.

*Please don't tell me that Tim Declercq is laughing his butt off right now...
 
any idea who orchestrated the split? It seems it wasn't bora, because then there would be Oss and Bodnar in the group. Trek maybe? They basically have their top guys there

EDIT: ok, so according to CN ticker, it's the Jumbo guys who caught quicksteppers napping, they have pretty impresive lineup too there. Sagan vs. WVA vs. Degenkolb head to head, that could be nice finale

The second group has split as well and the third is at 1:10. Even if group 1 and 2 come back together, there’s only like 80 riders left.
Sweet, and if the second group wanna come back they gonna have to spend a lot of energy and put in a shift.
 
why the hell have we no pictures, I have no problem if the whole race is covered in the tv, but they could have at least moto footage placed online exactly for this reason, that for once, we have some action early

54 km in the second hour, holy s***!
well, after this racing, even if it comes back together, we will not have a sprint in the end, that's for sure. The chase groups will have to be flying over the hills, all of them.
