Or it could be Ochowitz is frustrated with Richie’s bad luck.


#6124

I think everyone is frustrated with his luck!


#6125

Power and Simon Yates in the final group of 8, with 15km to go.


#6126

Power attacks with 10km to go and Yates bridges over - They have 10s on the peleton with 10kms to go.


#6127

Co Leaders :slight_smile:
TJ had a chance to be leader at TDF when Ritchie went down and he stuffed it.


#6128

You think Yates gives this to Power?


#6129

How far ahead are they from the peleton ? What are the parcours for the end ? Tick the boxes and Yates gifts the win to Power.


#6130

Yates gives the win to Power.

Is Kristoff the biggest bloke in pro cycling? He looks massive compared to everyone else on the road. Maybe it’s the white kit…


#6134

Kristoff is a big guy - His DS’s have been known to complain he is overweight.


#6135

Quintana beats D.Martin after both attacked in the early stages of the final climb - Thomas outsprinted Dumoulin and Roglic for third - Froome dropped and lost around 40 seconds - Thomas leads TD by nearly 2 minutes while Froome holds on to third by 17 seconds from Roglic - Sagan crashed on the final descent and went over the line with a banged body.

And it was great to see two French riders in Demare and Laporte fight out the finish of stage 18 - Cofidis management appealed to the jury as Demare drifted out in the last 100 metres - Ewan confirmed to participate in Ride London on Sunday - Onwards and upwards to the Vuelta.


#6137

Fair effort from Roglic to win the stage and get above Froome on GC


#6138

Won’t last after tonight surely


#6139

Isn’t he a time trial medalist at the worlds?


#6140

He’s an excellent TTer. Even money I reckon tonight, Froome isn’t at his best, so Roglic is in with a fair shot, also in catching Dumoulin.
The more that I think about, the more I like Roglic’s chances.


#6141

I’m expecting a “so good you might almost think it’s suspicious” TT from Froome. No particular reason why. Just a hunch.


#6142

Some rain, and a slippery surface.
It could be a bit of a lottery.
