Happy with that ... stinking ride from Dumoulin again.
Nolte

Good ride from dumoulin. What was the end gap with roglic?
Good ride from kittel to be in pouncing position at 11 seconds

The GC riders seemed to have rode that with brakes on. Majka seemed to be crawling around the bends

Presume you mean stonking Bart Smile

Interesting from Amador. He could be a bit of a dark horse. Have not seen any coverage today - I had my own big bike ride. Will try to find some highlights later.

14cms or 1 hundredth of a second.
Roglic has never won an ITT.
Crazy result.

A Blink of the eye would have made Primrose a famous rider.
Last year he won the Tour d'Azerbaïdjan and his home Tour of Slovenia in which he beat Mikel Nieve and Diego Uliss among others.
Not bad for a former Ski Jumper.

Wait the mountain point had been previously the sprint point?

The first GC rider to hit the deck award goes to Sergey Firsanov.

I got in just in time to see Kittel going Dutch Rolling Eyes

It was possibly the most boring Grand Tour stage I have ever had the misfortune to witness. Incredible, given some of the stuff dished out during the Tour's accumulative first weeks.
Convinced me to opt for the standard Sunday lunch, as the reverse route planned for tomorrow is just too much to stomach.
This long Dutch weekend is a classic case of the RCS milking revenue through negative promotion of the sport.
Fontfroide

Don't give up Huw.  There a couple of wee hills in the next stage!  One not too far from the end.
Nolte

Confession time - my main focus today was on the Dunkirk stage

Peraud crashes out of the giro after hitting a kerb

He was in velogames team

A bit of echelon fun on the closing circuits. Don't know if anyone of note is on the wrong side of split. The break are still away too.

FDJ train has crashed and looks like Dillier was caught up in it and broke a wrist.

Kittel in a league of his own in the sprint. Takes the overall lead.

Aye, he beat them all out of sight in both stages.  I woke up from a snooze for the last 5 kms Very Happy

Kittel has more costume changes than a Madonna concert Wink

Kittel on a different planet.

3 days of racing in the Netherlands.
3 pieces of drama in total.
3 ad breaks from Eurosport at those times.
Impressive.

At least ES have the A-team on commentary - Hatch and Kelly.  Kelly is a lot more chatty when he doesn't have to put up with Kirby, too.  

At Dunkerque, Kirby somehow managed to completely miss the escape rider getting caught with 3 kms to go, and then seemed totally unaware that Kenny de Haes actually won the stage because he was concentrating on Coquard finishing second, even though he had already declared that Coquard wouldn't contest the sprint and would just roll in as overall winner.  He is a beaut...
