    Dumoulin just trolling them all now. Enough time to win the Giro and take a shit.

    Hatch saying it's due to another "natural break" for Dumoulin.

    Booo Movistar, booo Bahrain, booo FDJ, booo Katusha etc

    This is very finely poised, isn't it? Are any of the contenders apart from Dumoulin good at time trialling?

    Kruijswijk is out, doesn't he know he's costing me valuable fantasy points?

    Is this going to be the only/most exciting time trial in history?

    Giro has set a fairly high bar for this stuff tbf:



    (the speed of that bike swap remains about #7 on the list of most impressive feats I have witnessed during a cycle race)

    My team has been bang average so far. Highly disappointing and not helpful my brother is in the top 30. Been let down by Magnus Cort big time and Peter Sagan didn't quite boss the classics like he should have done. Also woz robbed of a few points when Movistar attacked Yates in the motorbike crash of the Giro.

    Entire TdF rests on Sagan, back to Yates for the Vuelta. My Grand Tour options are actually piss poor.

    Yep, quite liked it. Definitely a better experiment than that barmy GC method they tried out at Poland or wherever it was the other year. Betancur to win TdF now IMO.
