Nah... They just like the new tartan-like design of the jersey.Fergoose said:This could be the best KotM for many a year. Have they increased the prize money for it? Its unusual to see several previously protected riders going for points.
It's interesting becasue nobody really went for the mountain points other than Wellens until yesterday. Nibali for example was always likely to start stage hunting at some point but no way he would have been allowed into a break in the Vosges. Same for Bardet, although this is now surely his plan B. But I agree, becuase Wellens, the guy who is leading the competition isn't a top level climber this could be close until the penultimate stage.Fergoose said:This could be the best KotM for many a year.

Makes sense thank you.Pantani_lives said:Because it should inspire riders to attack early on the climb rather than wait for the unsteep final km.Panda Claws said:

Sick breakaway group FWIW, come on.
This mountain stage is bang average apart from the placing of the climbs being well done.Flamin said:But but.. it's a long-ish stage, how can there be action? It's supposed to happen only on junior length stages.
Anyways, nice to see Quintana on the attack.
