would love to know what caused Antonio Tiberi to crash at the finish line , couldnt see any reason for it :wacko:
He's out anyway,nasty gash to his knee requiring stitches and plenty of missing skin ! Looked like his arm slipped of pads or something failed on the front end of the bike ?

Nah...watched the last 5k of that.He timed that to perfection.Felt for Yates though,he looked strong... unfortunately he was the perfect lead out man for Pogi.
Looked strong but never looked like winning it. Is Team Fracky Placky trying to become the new Quickstep? ;)

The stage...really ? Thought he was close enough to breaking Pogi.It might of been a different outcome had he not been so far behind timewise.#wheelsucker

I thought so too. If it had been steeper for longer I think Yates woukd have had the stage.
Early days though but nice to see a competitive mountain stage.
Such a bizarre landscaoe though - looks more like a Zwift creation!

OK, I agree, if it had been steeper for longer, it would have been a different race, maybe with a different winner! :laugh:

Or if it was flatter, with cobbles, in cold rain, it could have been a spring classic and Yates would have had even less chance.

Back to Pogacar...he's some rider isn't he ! Feck you have to be as good in the mountains and then TT ! I thought he might of let Yates have the stage today ? But nah he wants it all,and deserves it.
