What an amazing stage!
It’s like a normal midlife crisis only with more chandeliers and foreign languages.

Sometimes the time trials can be a little bit dull, but not today!

It was stunning. I wanted to cry for Roglic at the end. Delighted for Porte though, comfortably 3rd in the end

That was unbelievable! Great for Ritchie, amazing from Pogacar. But yes, felt very bad for Roglic.

Watching the build up to the stage in the highlights programme I thought it was going to be pretty dull - wrong!! :lol:

A little bittersweet, I’m sad for Roglič but delighted for Pogačar. Both have been brilliant. I’m pleased for Porte too.

I feel for Roglic but what a completely incredible win! Three jerseys!

Oh. :(

Well, it didn't work too well for them! :look:

So pleased for Sam. A really satisfying ending to a great tour.

No, that's what I thought too :mog: Dude, if you're this bad on dope, god help you without it.

I was delighted for him too, it must feel so so sweet.

We've been watching. Annoying they put the mens on the actual TV but only stream the women's

I hate that. And then they use it as evidence that people are more interested in men's sports. :ella:

Giro has started! :toot:

I'm actually enjoying having cycling to watch during the day when it's cold and rainy and you don't want to be out and about.

It's not the best. There's also highlights on Quest.

Bradley Wiggins looks a bit different...

I really dislike Brian Smith.
