Okay, a Portuguese rider from a Portuguese continental team managing a top 2 between Asgreen and B Thomas in a semi-long ITT is probably going to be one of the most bonkers results of the season.

You almost never see even ProTeam riders being anywhere near the elite in ITT's and this is a level three rider. Wow.

Reis was a good TTer in the junior and u23 ranks (6th in the ITT at the WC in 210 & 4th in 2014), but it's still a surprise.
Efapel ride Giant bikes, so them actually having good TT-bikes probably also helped him.

Yep, that sort of belongs in a different thread doesn't it ;)
 
Dunno if B. Thomas was in the break the whole time. At any rate, he's in the front with Schwarzmann now. The rest of the break is still in between.

D. Van Poppel was definitely never in the break, though. He was OTL yesterday.
