    Then again it's inconsequential for Clarke who also got 2 mins, a fine would have been much fairer for all parties

    What I dislike is that on this particular case they've been so tight about it, a rider getting a wheel to limit his losses is nowhere near as bad as a group of riders crossing barriers that are down, endangering their own lives and those around them, yet which one was provoked?

    And I didn't watch the stage yesterday, but I heard the camera bike was getting mighty close to the all Italian breakaway, something I can easily see, but nothing's happened...

    There is talk of the mass wheel swap, a couple of Orica riders have retweeted a Dan Lloyd tweet suggesting it, hopefully the old heads put their foot down and force it.

    How much did you get it for out of curiosity? (thinking of selling mine so feel free to inbox me if you'd rather not say publicly)

    Missed the closing km's but I managed to get a double on Cav to win the stage and Sag's for the GC earlier, feeling smug now :)

    Always cool when bike handling skills mean you win a race, and this'll shut Oleg up for a bit now, happy for Sagan, and he fucked the eternal twat that is Farrar over

    Changing of the guard now? is Alaphillipe Mr. 2nd Place after missing out on fleche wallone, l-b-l and now this?!

    They won't need to, EQS' main aim for this stage is to get Cav the win, according to Alaphillipe anyway, that may have changed though what with the Sagan situation.

    They basically need to decide: Stage for Cav or risk that a break will stay away and gift Alaphillipe the win, I don't think a break will, as there's another three teams who will chase

    Cheers, watching it now, Cav took the intermediate for 5 seconds, then Sag's second by a whisker for 3 seconds and Alaphillipe for 1 second.

    So Alaphillipe holds the lead by 0.7 seconds and Sagan just needs to finish on the podium to win, watch him lock onto Cav's wheel now

    What happens if he gets 2? That's the difference between him and Alaphillipe right? or is it really 2.XX

    I'm no look expert, but needs to be a silver group I reckon, silver 5800, with classic stem, bars and post, then modern silver hubs (hope mono rs?) laced to grey tb14's.

    That'd be the perfect blend of looking classic but having all the modern performance

    Grey won't go with the stays and silver accents on the paint I don't think
