    Thanks. Very strange - looks like a motorist brake-testing a bunch of commuters drafting. What could have set the sensors off? I guess it has to be accepted as part of the risk the peleton accepts when choosing to draft the director's car through the neutral zone, though.

    It’s hardly drafting at that point tbh, the speed they were travelling at. No real gain for the riders, that they would not have had from the peloton itself.

    Gutted for Cav though. :sad:.

    With the extra distance he travelled crossing at the end, he would have been well ahead had his approach been clearer. Hopefully found good form again. Makes it more interesting when there’s competition.

    GVA looks like he’s well up for making it three in a row.

    Well played by Astana. Wooden spoon for Lotto-Soudal.

    Gatto did a good job of disrupting the chase though.

    Highlight of the race for me was Tom spitting his dummy out !
