Navardaskus (sp?) for the win from a breakaway of seven or eight riders.
That guy is long overdue for a big win. Plus, quick step have bigger fish to fry; katusha no like kristoff; and dimension data no longer have a reason to exist. They might as well join the touring groups that follow Le Tour and give sightseeing tips to foreigners. I'd love to see Bouhannni (sp?) get a win, but he seems cursed.

boring flat stage

when's the next stage worth watching? weekend?
Sunday.
Saturday aswell.
On Saturday the cat. 1 climb before the last 10k of false flat would be a cat. 2 in Giro, it's 11k at 6.4 average. Don't think anything can happen.

In France, the hardest climb are not Cat. 1 but Cat. HC ........
Are you a real cycling fan?

Oops, sorry. Now I know why the guy was laughing when I threw down 50 bux on Navardauskas. I wonder if I can get my money back.

Yeah but some cat 1s could feasibly be cat 1s in the Giro (Joux Plane). This is barely a cat 1. I've seen comparable climbs as Cat 3 or unclassified in the Giro.

The lead-in to the finish in the arrival city looks not too bad. There is a hard-left 90-degree turn at about 2 kilometers out. And then curiously, a round-about circile, to pass through at about 200 meters from the finish line. Seems tactically very important to get around that semicircle before anyone else

With this round-about circle, this would be another Sagan podium stage.
