With Froome and Dum out it's certainly the most open in years. I think Bernal's bit young and inexperienced to take it and G will crack on one of those many above 2000m climbs. I'll go with the french (Bardet or Pinot) to finally get it.

Alaphilippe reminded me of Pantani in 1998 today.

A guy with no TT pedigree suddenly beating the best contre le montre boys in cycling by a margin.

Then did the big wheel slide at the end and a massive celebration whilst hardly even blowing.
He should have been utterly spent but was still fresh.

Dubious as hell.

Any luck?

If yesterday was a joke, today was bigger. Worse than Pantani in 98 - at least he was a pure climber.

Alaphilippe is taking the piss.

The best job in the tour. Turning cock graffiti into spaceships and owls.
