  • Leadbelly: looks like all the gc guys are in the morton grp, but only EF I think hve more than 1 rider there
    May 18, 2019, 20:22
  • Leadbelly: attacks from the peloton!
    May 18, 2019, 20:15
  • Leadbelly: schachmann takes the first intermediate. if he wins the second one he'll overtake both dennis and tj in the GC
    May 18, 2019, 19:59
  • Leadbelly: one obvious danger there. all the rest will be trying to persuade him to go back to the peloton
    May 18, 2019, 19:04
  • Leadbelly: Break: Rosa, Craddock, Hofstede, Powless, Oliveira, Stetina, Cavagna, Ballerini, Schachmann, Hoehn and Storer

    May 18, 2019, 18:37
  • Joelsim: Tejay is useless
    May 17, 2019, 23:45
  • Joelsim: Anyone important in the lead group?
    May 17, 2019, 22:40
  • Drummer Boy: It looks like they end on a climb this evening. That's all I know.
    May 17, 2019, 22:33
  • Drummer Boy: I try to catch replays from NBC Sports when I can.
    May 17, 2019, 22:32
  • Drummer Boy: I've no idea what's even going on. I've been having massive computer issues lately, and the finishing time for California is generally terrible for me.
    May 17, 2019, 22:32
  • Leadbelly: won't be around for the rest of the stage :wave
    May 17, 2019, 20:43

    May 16, 2019, 23:04
  • Leadbelly: so thats why bahrain were working earlier
    May 16, 2019, 23:03
  • Leadbelly: garcia
    May 16, 2019, 23:02
  • Leadbelly: gonna be a fairly large sprint
    May 16, 2019, 23:01
  • Leadbelly: i'm guessing this is stybar (got no comms)
    May 16, 2019, 22:55
  • Leadbelly: climb incoming
    May 16, 2019, 22:52
  • Leadbelly: rowe putting it in the gutter
    May 16, 2019, 22:48
  • Leadbelly: declercq will find it very tough to survive the climb
    May 16, 2019, 22:46
  • Leadbelly: about to head south now. some crosswind action across the lake please
    May 16, 2019, 22:32
  • Leadbelly: a writer on velonews was trying to justify it, but failed to come up with anything worthwhile
    May 16, 2019, 22:30
  • Leadbelly: i think most people are scratching their heads at it
    May 16, 2019, 22:23
  • Drummer Boy: I was surprised to hear Liggett, Roll and CVV siding with Lefevre on the Tejay issue earlier, if I indeed heard that correctly.
    May 16, 2019, 22:20
  • Mellow Velo: Looks like we'll pick up coverage on the 2nd cat.
    May 16, 2019, 21:40
  • Leadbelly: looks like the break have half given up? just tootling along
    May 16, 2019, 21:32
  • Mellow Velo: Yeah, so they are going to fly along, right up until we get live pics, then crawl the rest of the way into a raging headwind. :fp
    May 16, 2019, 21:14
  • Leadbelly: gonna be a tailwind most of the way here, but they turn south near the end Lake Casitas. fingers crossed for some action there
    May 16, 2019, 21:12
  • Leadbelly: looking at that wind, a few more riders may come off
    May 16, 2019, 21:02
  • Mellow Velo: My GC riders have all started to fall off! :D
    May 16, 2019, 20:40
  • Leadbelly: I'm a bit light in the GC dept here at Cali, but the Giro looks good - touch wood
    May 16, 2019, 20:30
  • Leadbelly: Every dog has his day!
    May 16, 2019, 20:29
  • Mellow Velo: I see you will be top of both Velogames leagues later this evening, LB. ;)
    May 16, 2019, 19:56
  • Leadbelly: pretty strong grp
    May 16, 2019, 19:22
  • Leadbelly: chasing are Bol and Hoehn
    May 16, 2019, 19:22
  • Leadbelly: Break: Powless, Skujins, Ballerini, Schar, Basso, Hofstede, Philipsen, McNulty, Declercq and Sagan
    May 16, 2019, 19:22
  • Leadbelly: adios
    May 16, 2019, 19:21
  • Drummer Boy: I'm out for now. Enjoy. :wave
    May 16, 2019, 19:10
  • Drummer Boy: I
    May 16, 2019, 19:09
  • Drummer Boy: Some determination in the field, it seems. It's going to be a painful day for many.
    May 16, 2019, 19:09
  • Mellow Velo: Over 50kph, still no break. Must have a hurricane up their backsides.
    May 16, 2019, 19:01
  • Drummer Boy: Surely Cavendish must be among them?
    May 16, 2019, 18:44
  • Mellow Velo: 49kph after all those 35kph stages. 50 riders out the back already.
    May 16, 2019, 18:42
  • Drummer Boy: Sagan attacking early on.  :D yeah, that's not going to fly.
    May 16, 2019, 18:28
  • Drummer Boy: Looks like they've reestablished communication. I'll be out for a bit, should be able to catch that latter part of today.
    May 16, 2019, 18:28
  • Drummer Boy: Then again, given this apparent delay in proceedings, maybe someone halted the action to sort this out.  :P
    May 16, 2019, 18:17
  • Drummer Boy: Too late now, I suppose. The riders should be off by now. Women's race begins in two hours.
    May 16, 2019, 18:11
  • Leadbelly: I was kinda hoping somebody in Aigle would have woken up this morning, seen the news, :fp a bit and then grabbed a phone, but it doesn't look like it
    May 16, 2019, 17:22
  • Leadbelly: ------------------ Stage 5 -----------------------
    May 16, 2019, 17:21
  • Drummer Boy: Just in: TeJay retains Yellow after all.
    May 16, 2019, 01:00
  • Drummer Boy: and Philipsen was there in 2nd place for the sprint finish.
    May 16, 2019, 00:42
  • Drummer Boy: Kasper Asgreen possibly in the leader's jersey tomorrow. Details still being worked out, apparently.
    May 16, 2019, 00:42
  • Drummer Boy: Which is odd, considering that the game itself doesn't even start for another 30 minutes. Pre-game banter and highlights outweigh live cycling podium ceremonies and final times. etc.
    May 16, 2019, 00:32
  • Drummer Boy: Once again, NBC skips straight to NHL playoffs, so zero post-finish coverage. Good thing for the Tour Tracker. I'll have to go back and watch that whole ending again to sort it all out.
    May 16, 2019, 00:19
  • Francois the Postman: Weird weird finish.
    May 16, 2019, 00:17
  • Drummer Boy: Jakobsen out duels Sagan. Tejay loses some serious time, and probably the lead.
    May 16, 2019, 00:14
  • Francois the Postman: Quickstep. Who else
    May 16, 2019, 00:14
  • Francois the Postman: riders all over the place all ofa sudden
    May 16, 2019, 00:12
  • Francois the Postman: must be a weird race to catch up with, for TJ
    May 16, 2019, 00:12
  • Francois the Postman: race on
    May 16, 2019, 00:11
  • Francois the Postman: So a bend, and a road that isn't 8 lanes wide are a bit of a shock to the peloton
    May 16, 2019, 00:10
  • Drummer Boy: CRASH!
    May 16, 2019, 00:09
  • Drummer Boy: Not sure who their sponsor is.
    May 16, 2019, 00:09
  • Drummer Boy: Snapped chain for Tejay. More SRAM magic?
    May 16, 2019, 00:09
  • Francois the Postman: well, I guess what works for the italians in italy works for americans in America
    May 16, 2019, 00:08
  • Drummer Boy: They should not be allowed to draft that much.
    May 16, 2019, 00:08
  • Francois the Postman: oh, and different bike makes him miss the bend just when he was just about back.
    May 16, 2019, 00:07
  • Drummer Boy: Drama! Action! Excitement! Mayhem!
    May 16, 2019, 00:07
  • Francois the Postman: TJVG on the deck
    May 16, 2019, 00:04
  • Francois the Postman: When I watch races like ToC and TDU, I kinda get why you get so many US and Ozzie cycling fans arguing for new racing formats.
    May 15, 2019, 23:14
  • Drummer Boy: The ToC? Nah. The Tour Tracker is free over here. Plus, it's one of the very few races that the NBC Sports channel offers on its regular channel.
    May 15, 2019, 23:12
  • Francois the Postman: Still streaming illegal?
    May 15, 2019, 23:10
  • Drummer Boy: I already feel like I want my money back.
    May 15, 2019, 23:09
  • Francois the Postman: In a 3 week race, fair enough. In a 7 day stage race... that's not a good show
    May 15, 2019, 23:09
  • Drummer Boy: Glad I didn't put anything aside for this.
    May 15, 2019, 23:09
  • Drummer Boy: May as well have. Good god this looks like a useless day.
    May 15, 2019, 23:08
  • Francois the Postman: did you cut and paste that from all the races the last few days ;)
    May 15, 2019, 22:59
  • Drummer Boy: I just got home. Just tuning in to TV. Gonna go out on a limb and suggest that I haven't missed a thing?
    May 15, 2019, 22:51
  • Mellow Velo: A lot of arm warmers in the bunch, too.
    May 15, 2019, 22:12
  • Mellow Velo: Headwind making progress painfully slow. Still over 83kms to go, so over 2 hours at least.
    May 15, 2019, 22:12
  • Joelsim: Mornin’
    May 15, 2019, 21:06
  • Mellow Velo: 36kph again. Another late night in Europe. :D
    May 15, 2019, 21:01
  • Leadbelly: Break: Henttala, Hernandez, Goldstein, Brown and Garrison
    May 15, 2019, 18:45
  • Leadbelly: --------------- Stage 4 -------------------
    May 15, 2019, 09:34
  • Drummer Boy: TeJay looking wafer-thin on the podium.
    May 15, 2019, 00:21
  • Drummer Boy: Kasper Asgreen  #deceuninck took the field sprint just ahead of Philipsen, much to the amazement of CVV and Roll
    May 15, 2019, 00:20
  • Drummer Boy: No changes to the GC
    May 15, 2019, 00:14
  • Drummer Boy: Ben King  #didata easily takes 2nd over Simon Geschke  #ccc
    May 15, 2019, 00:13
  • Drummer Boy: Podium still up for grabs.
    May 15, 2019, 00:08
  • Drummer Boy: Good thing he finished when he did. TV just cut to the NHL playoffs as scheduled.
    May 15, 2019, 00:05
  • Drummer Boy: He was only wearing one jersey though.  :P
    May 15, 2019, 00:04
  • Drummer Boy: Cavangna  #deceuninck #deceuninck to hold on to the long solo attack to take the stage.
    May 15, 2019, 00:03
  • Drummer Boy: Some very questionable descending earlier. I'm surprised Cavagna made it down in one piece.
    May 15, 2019, 00:02
  • Drummer Boy: Hoehn just caught out. Nothing left in his legs to keep up now.
    May 15, 2019, 00:02
  • Drummer Boy: Maybe it's all the solo time on screen, but this seems like a never-ending stage.
