Morkov has been a leadout magician in the past. His absence may be a big factor in what we've seen from QS. Jakobsen is undoubtedly very fast, but he seems to be missing the scrappiness found in...

Ineffective. Absent. There's probably some more adjectives that fit. Maybe I'm not sure what you're asking.

Why? Because they won again?

Today's finish was an absolute failure by the sprinters' teams to take control and bring the race back together for the finish. Jumbo wasn't trying to win the stage,...

Yes! That's what I meant by "respect for the competition". They fought the battle in the sporting arena, rather than taking advantage of the other's misfortune. At this point in the race, in that...

Fantastic finish in the mountains!! The strongest rider - and team - left no question about their dominance. Punches thrown and dodged. Tanks drained to empty. Absolute respect for the competition...

The hope of major fireworks turned out to be nothing more than a single firecracker. McNulty's tempo pace shredded everyone but the top dogs, and appeared to be the absolute limit for his Pogi....

A win on the wings of an angel - beautiful and moving. Jumbo still looks pretty big. Ineos' best hope is to keep G-Tom on the 3rd step. Expect Pogi to throw big punches tomorrow.

Looking forward to an exciting battle in the Pyrenees. Pogi is going to punch hard. If Jonas can keep riding the way he has been, he should be able to hold on, but any weakness, and things could...

I am ecstatic about today's win by Pidcock. Huge fan of this young master of cycling. I'm curious to know if anyone has won at the level he has in 3 separate disciplines - World Cup race winner and...

The green jersey for WVA is on the priority list for Jumbo, but WVA has done a great job with pretty much locking it up without having to lean heavily on his team. It seems that Jumbo is well-built...

Pogi being totally isolated on the Galibier with 4 Jumbos was telling. UAE has burned way too many matches, and Pogi's big efforts in the first week may be catching up to him. We will see how he...

It would be easy to say that Pogi has this wrapped up, but I have concerns that his significant efforts in the first week may leave him empty at the end. I hope I'm wrong, because I'm really...

Odd, yes, but not even WVA can hold off the full peloton over that distance, in that terrain. His time loss today gives him more freedom in his battle for green, which is his true goal.

Very good to see Roglic in the battle at the pointy end of the group after yesterday's incident. I was hoping for Pidcock to pull off a stage win, but Pogi is undeniably powerful right now. I'm...

The same things have been said about other young winners. While Pogi looks to be flying, there are still a lot of miles to ride this year. The first week still isn't over. All that said, I think...

Roglic apparently dislocated his shoulder, sat in a spectator's chair to pop it back in himself, finished the stage, and only lost 2 min to Pogacar. Tough guys ride bikes.

Easy to say after the fact. If he had enough gas in the tank to hold it, we'd be cheering his win. I thought it was the right move, especially when the other 3 didn't react. What I thought was...

The TDF cannot be won in the first week, but it can be lost, and being lucky is just as important as being good. As expected, cobblestones have shaken things up!

Is there any expectation that it won't be a Slovenian show-down?
