Amazing race, that's how the Ardennes should be in my mind.
Ecstatic for GvA, who's had probably his best season ever after the crash in Flanders that meant it might be a write off
Valverde getting fucked over was a joy to watch too
I want to feel sorry for Porte but at this point I now solidly believe that things like this are his fault, because if they're not, how do the happen to him so consistently/often?
Team GB are wank though - after Rod Ellingworth's master tactic of "set it up for a sprint for Cav" in 2011, what has he actually done? A race like this is clearly a free for all, and then the strongest/hardest wins, so let everyone try and get in moves; Cummings would have probably been able to stay with that front group had he been there, and he's got much better pedigree of getting the win by going off the front on the flat than Thomas, Yates, and probably Froome. But because the others are the big names, he has to work - a perfect example of going with what your heart says and not your head.
