Today's final climb:

Last time they did this, Atapuma won from a breakaway just in front of the favourites' group. Gaps were surprisingly small, with
almost 20 guys within 1 minute.

The streets will never forget

 
People when there are no gaps on a MTF: "Bwaahh, boring riders, nobody races, everybody finishes together, cycling is ruined!!!!"

People when there is separation on a MTF:
"Bwaahh, no suspense in the race, no excitement, cycling is ruined!!!!"
Wow, "people" are not a homogenous blob?!

Skjelmose getting the Best Young Rider's jersey just shows how silly it is to keep this tradition alive. Please get rid of this. Some are joking that there should be a Best Old Rider's jersey instead - in my opinion, that's not even a joke, on the contrary it's more relevant, and it would be a good occasion to pay tribute to some of the famous "veterans".

People when people disagree: "Bwaahh, it's impossible to satisfy everyone, public discourse is ruined!!!!"

People when people agree: "Bwaahh, can't you think for yourself, be just a little bit original, public discourse is ruined!!!!"

Toby when he sees a notification and it says 'Netserk quoted your post in the thread...':
"Bwaahh!!!!"

To be serious for a second, after so many of the greatest races of the season have not only been won in dominant fashion, but early and as expected in a very one-sided manner, I'd appreciate a race like last year's edition with a tight battle for GC more than usual. I wouldn't blame anyone for being just a little bit fed-up with demolition jobs at this point.

I'm fine with the young rider class but it should definitely be Under-23 instead of 25.

I understand it too, but we just had Dauphiné where it was close, and a lot of people were critical of that too.

I know it's not the same people by the way.
