Goodmorning! I'm starting to worry a bit about the break. Not that they won't take it back, but it could be late in the race (and thus messy).
Someone's got to pull on the climbs, Italy/Belgium/Spain (and, edit: Slovenia ofcourse) should talk a bit to see who they will sacrifice.

No reason to worry. They will be melted away into the second climb. This is a nasty race day and they will blow up on Fuji if not sooner.

Tuned in 20 mins ago with 184K to go.
Don't quite understand Danish' team tactics, sitting half the team in the front using energy, I interpret this as weakness and sourrender, not exactly hearing songs from the Bird.
Tadej, on the other side, in the back of the peleton with a laugh and big smile that seems could last until the finish line.
Edit: Unfortunately have to leave the live signal again now, hopefully I'll be able to watch the dying k's...

YouTube has a couple of good streams..one in Spanish,w 2 females commenting is decent..
this South African guy in the front has leg cadence like a sewing machine..smooth operator..
There looks to be not much difference in officiating..the normal Madison style hand slings look to be there from pieces of ice,bananas and bottles..
I can't pick a favorite..big names showing zero respect for the break and it looks like they think the away riders don't have the legs for 2 climbs..it is going to be crazy if there is a black, African Olympic champion!!!And Sagan's bro podiums..
