Let's go let's gooo! Must be nice in Nice!
2020 is not your usual year but it won't stop TdF from happening. Will Bernal defend his title? Two cat.1 climbs already on stage 2.

I don't think that it's gonna be that easy. It's tough to defend the title and fight with the pressure of being the top favourite with the whole group of riders having their eyes and ears pointed towards you. Plus Bernal is still not 100% back after the back injury.

I'm going with Roglic. Jumbo has been outstanding recently. However, he also had a crash ...

Emotional stage win for Alaphilippe today. Is he capable of another yellow jersey round?

And wasn't Aru among the GC favourites? Lost more than 2min today ... but I guess Pogacar is their number one. Meanwhile Dauphine winner Martinez is already 3:38 down after today.

Roglic strikes! Alaphilippe keeps yellow with strong 5th. Here's a video with the final kilometer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVM73NgGCuc

Doesn't that (Alaphilippe case) usually result only in $ fine and that's it?

Ciao guys.
I also tuned in to watch stage action. Team JUMBO looks phenomenal and I'm glad that Sepp is a significant part of it. He deserves some credit.

when you thought 2020 can't get any stranger

   



meanwhil Bennett took over the green jersey from Sagan last night who got stuck behind in the spring -> any thoughts @Sagan97 ?

Oh Bernal Big Grin The new haicut certainly hasn 't helped, Slovenian duo had better legs today.

@JoJoJo it's looking good for Bennett so far, unfortunately for Sagan fans. There might not be green jersey no.8 this year ..

Bernal's being dropped right now. Already +2:30 behind in virtual GC.

Lance said that it's the best performance he has ever seen.
Hands down, top 3 ever cycling moment for me too.

even I tuned in for the last stages. the youngest winner for more than a century, it was a magnificent performance. Slovenian president was ready to give a big kiss to Roglic after he wins in Paris. now he has to go for the other compatriot ha.
