I don't think there's any reason to feel sorry for him. Maybe if had been caught closer to the finish or if he had worked with Carapaz, not that it wasn't the smartest thing not to do that, I would agree, but in the end he just made the wrong decision, because he wasn't up against Remco or someone with the same sprint ability.First time I feel sorry for Fuglsang
They'll be tough but let's face it, on a day like today, Jumbo and UAE probably have 3 guys each in the main group there riding tempo for Pog and Rog, and it seems unlikely both teams will be off at the same time.That was fun to watch.
INEOS will be a tough team to control at the Tour.
Strong ride from Carapaz.
Fuglsang probably should've ridden more conservative.
But he was going for it all out.
And a great showing from Chaves.
Including the driveway episode.
That's the spirit.
Poels makes Porte look like the most consistent rider in the world, him having bad days even in shorter stage races is pretty normal. He really won the lottery when he finished 6th in that Vuelta.Poels drops 4:48 - the "Bahrain riding for Padun" thing might actually happen
Yes, UAE and JV are more than capable to respond. They'll only need a common 'cause. Not that often case in the pro peloton.They'll be tough but let's face it, on a day like today, Jumbo and UAE probably have 3 guys each in the main group there riding tempo for Pog and Rog, and it seems unlikely both teams will be off at the same time.
Chaves probably needed to wait for his attack until 3 or 4km from the top of the second last climb - Anyway he is riding well - The question is will he be allowed to get into a break in the second half of the TDF as he is not riding GC.We should praise the attackers. They make the race more fun. Had Chaves stayed in that group all the time I am sure he would have dropped them in the last climb. But it was more fun like this.
Richie looks very fit and thin!!!!!
