Decreased the gap from 1:09 to 0:53 (hand-measured). So maybe (if unlikely) he would have caught them. And the last climb would have been way easier. Anyway i think he will lose again a good chunk of time tomorrow.Pirazziattacks said:By caught do you mean was slowly taking seconds back on the descent?thehog said:Partly true - he caught the Thomas group on the decent and the last climb wasn't as hard. He could have limited his losses. So not sure what time they should give.broppo said:lol it would be totally ridiculous if they annul this stage, or half the times. It was clear Alaphillippe was gonna crack hard!!!!
Remember Froome on Ventoux on the motocycle crash stage. They gave him the same time as Molloma.
