Putting a TTT in this race is beyond stupid, what's the point?
I'm fine with an ITT, but nobody needs a TTT in an u23 race with national teams from all around the world...
The worst part is that they put it basically every year these days. Meanwhile a decent-length ITT never happens anymore, as much as the discipline has declined it's still far more relevant to modern-day racing than the TTT, and that's before factoring in the national teams.

Absolutely *** if you ask me..: it makes no sense to put a TTT anymore… would love to ear some kind of explanation from the race director about it

It's a straight up war today. Sad there isn't any live broadcast, a bit stupid for the biggest u23 race when there's lesser known races that do have some sort of broadcast.
No idea who's where right now.
 
Still a 40 seconds advantage for those 17.

Umba DNF after his crash.

EDIT: 30" gap now

EDIT2: Garofoli attacked from 2nd group, but still 40s behind. Looks like the first group is gonna sprint for the win (uphill sprint)

Johanessen definitely did a really good job for the GC today, being the only GC guy in the first group. The Dutch guys are far ahead but they're irrelevant for GC.
I wouldn't discount Healy and Hindsgaul completely, but Johannessen is definitely the winner.

Antoine Raugel was in 5th place. The Hauts-de-France/Grand-Est kit looks like the Slovenian national team's.
 
Horrible day for some of the GC guys.
