Breakaway is caught in the last km and Carapaz powers away to win the stage by 7 seconds from Formolo and Pinot - Yates 5th and Chaves 7th.

At least Eurosport are putting stage highlights on YouTube immediately. They’ve also tapped Cosmo for some “how the stage was won” videos which is awesome.


#5644

Should I feel bad for enjoying so much watching Froome blow up?


#5645

He looks cooked.

Excellent win by Yates and Chaves and a super ride by Haig. The last 4kms of this climb are similar to Zoncolan, though its 11km. This could be a good guide to the Zoncolan stage if riders hold their form.

Good ride by Ewan to finish 2nd with Sagan third in stage 1 of TOC. GC day for stage 2 and interesting to see how A.Yates performs after injury.

Transfer season will be interesting with MS wanting to retain Ewan and Yates x 2

Yep I have been keeping updated with the eurosport highlights the next morning.


#5649

Chavez just seems like the nicest bloke ever


#5650

Yates looks the strongest so far…
Hoping Rohan Dennis holds on to top 10.
It is enjoyable seeing froome unable to keep up, maybe he needs some more ventolin for the Zoncolan stage.

Sadly the snow keeps the pollen count down


#5652

Will add felt that Chaves could have won that stage at any time in the last 2km but chose to wait to see if Yates could win the stage.

#5654

Bernal wins the MTF, stage 2, ToC; Majka and Adam Yates some 20s behind 2nd and 3rd.
Tejay not performing well.


#5655

Chaves in trouble. Dropped by the pelothon early.


#5656

rest day blues for Chaves.


#5657

Just hope it’s not illness.


#5658

2m or so down on the pelothon.
He won’t be getting that back.


#5659

still 180kms to go. Can get back if he is feeling ok.


#5660

Sheesh


#5661

Gap going out, Nearly 3m now.
