    Stage 5 of the Tour Colombia today was just great - rollicking action all the last 30km - and Alaphilippe was a monster. He's really becoming an amazing rider. If Sky does end up becoming a Colombian team then this race won't be 'minor' any more...

    He's certainly showing his form early with that win,not easy breathing never mind racing at that altitude.

    Brilliant final stage of the Tour of Columbia today.Quintanna took the stage and Lopez took the overall win.
    I think Lopez played a blinder by letting Quintana win the stage and play it out between him and Sosa

    Great win for Pascal Ackerman of Bored Hands grower at Classica Almeria.

    Ominous for Kittel and I'm not sure which way: when Mezgec when right of Trentin and Ackerman went left, Marcel chose the correct wheel but didn't quite have enough road left to pass him. It depends where he is in his training cycle, I think... but the cycling podcast reports that Cat usher Alp e sin will be deciding who goes to which races based on performance so he may be trying to score early wins to "qualify" for his team's Tour team, which would make losing to Ackerman worrying.

    So Sonny Colbrelli wins S4 of the Tour of Oman, giving Bahrain Merida their first win of the year.
    That leaves just two World Tour teams who are without a win this season.
    I can't remember who though!
    Sunweb maybe, is one
