Ahhhhh man, I felt so sorry for Van Moer today! That is racing however and a cruel Peleton chase down!

Bloody hell Cavendish. Guy can always find a way. He was third wheel behind Alaphillipe with 1200 to go, which is too far out, so he regrouped behind Alpecin-Fenix to come around their guy on the riser to the line. He can read a race and knows where to be.

I am glad to see it to be very honest.

I happen to disagree with the protest, be the professionals you're paid to be.

Some racers just have a eye for which line they need to be in. He surely surprised me.

Haven't had time to watch the video but I have long been a Cav fan. Glad to see him accelerate like he used to, back before multiple crashes, diseases, and children.

The only rider I see that has lost their edge is Sagan. Either he has the worse luck in past few years or just that magical thing that happens overnight that zaps you and your ability.

I would never miss the TT stages, if they never showed another it wouldn't break my heart.

The Debrief: A Classic within the Tour de France
Sometimes it’s the surgical scalpel of a short mountain stage that can slice open the Tour de France. This was a sledgehammer.

The fact Van Der Poel is essentially a rookie at this is amazing. The TDF is a beast and his is certainly to me a Cinderella story.

Cav is two away! Ready for the record to be broken.
Pretty amazing for a "washed up" sprinter. Did you see the interview with Jimmy Johnson?

When in the history of the Tour have we ever seen someone take second in a sprint on a flat stage and then 24 hours later win a mountain stage?
