Do you mean Sport 1+? I actually pay for that one (unknowingly until 2 minutes ago), but need to rescan TV as it's newish here.

Indeed looking at the schedules, it seems to be the one. Ta for the tip Smile

Not everyone knows the winner was from Dearborn, Michigan, lives in Traverse City, Michigan, and went to the University of Michigan.  I come from Michigan, went to the same Uni, and visited Traverse City a few years ago.  Nice place.  

Bill Gull probably knows all of this.

Like the picture looking across Bern, Bio.
I once stayed at lake Thun for a few days.
Never got a clear view of the three peaks like that - they were always in cloud.

The win was just rewards for Aquablue who have worked their nuts off in every break they get into in every race they enter - an absolute credit to their sponsors.  

I'm afraid you've let the cat out of the bag with Bern, Bio.  You should have kept that to yourself... Very Happy  Very Happy

Indian* and Chinese visitors are years ahead of you Gerry. You'll be making do with their leftovers Wink Shame about the clouds Mazda - it's not so common to go a week without seeing the big peaks.

Today's sprint was another bit of a strange one. Not sure what the Sunweb strategy was. Sagan by a Hawaiian mile. Angel Lopez crashes out.

*Apparently it's a popular location for Bollywood movies here.

Kevin Reza hit a decimal point under 135kph on that descent.
First race back after his broken leg, Lopez ended up in hospital again,
where the 23-year-old Colombian was diagnosed with a fractured right thumb.
That boy sure does crash a lot.
With stomach problems effecting a couple of the other best climbers, the race looks a little lightweight in the GC department.

to be fair, it already looked that way when the race left cham. somebody woke rui costa up and he considered a long strong turn on the front.

A few Trek-Segafredo riders abandoning today. Team bug ?

Anyone of you younger and fitter types entering the Strava/Eurosport competition to be their "10th man" ?

https://blog.strava.com/eurosport/

As well as the weekend training camp with Trek there is a comp to win a VIP place in an official team car at the Vuelta.

Dumoulin quit as well.
Pozzovivo wins after a wet descent, due to gapping the rest a couple of kms from the top.
However, Woods, who started the descent first, ended up eleventh.

No worries about descents, wet or otherwise, tomorrow. The beast is back!

I felt sorry for Woods, but his descending lines were woeful.  There isn't much between the top ten on the road or in classification and it took a long time for Diddy to eventually break free of the stop/start stuff in the leader's group.  Tomorrow should make things much clearer, but it's a close run thing so far...

Err, this is looking a bit ridiculous.
Spilak soloing the last eight and a half kms.
Huge gaps already for the rest, grovelling behind.

Mental ascent, one man making the rest look like amateurs! Wonder what the Hor's Helai is on this one!

I suppose building a tunnel that contains a 10% gradient is no more difficult than building one that is level.

Spilak made that look ridiculously easy alright. I got the impression yesterday that he just wanted to stay in touch with the leaders because it was all about today. Hindsight may have influenced that line of thought though...

That is one brutal relentless climb.

Taramaae, after destroying the field, still manages to come in behind the Caruso, Kruijswijk, Hirt trio. Shocked

Love that climb though.
