Castroviejo is in great position to win this race, not saying he's going to. Last year on the same course Castroviejo was 36 seconds quicker than Roglic in the ITT. Now that Roglic seems to be climbing like a maniac again, his time trial may have declined some, while it was the exact opposite last season.

Ok, Primoz is nuts. This guy seriously has potential to hit it in a GT sometime.
Especially if he gets motorpaced


Pleased for Castroviejo
I wonder how long that police moto man had switched off for? Roglic already being paced by him when we saw it.

Having said that, not Roglic's fault and he was always likely to put in a top 3 ride on this stage anyway to be fair. I think Castroveijo would rightly have cause for complaint though if Roglic had won the stage.

I would prefer Roglic to win GC and obviously he didn't make the moto drive like that, but Kwiatkowski has every right to be very annoyed. A five, ten, fifteen second gap could in theory be overcome by a good Ardennes rider on the steep hill finish. 20 seconds plus, almost certainly not. Roglic would still be favourite, but being given a leg up from favourite to near certain winner is no small thing.

He has been a bit of a lucky boy with the motos. When he attacked Martin yesterday, he also got a very helpful slipstream, leading to Dan gesticulating at the motorbike to get lost. He'd still be in the lead now anyway, of course.
