  • Flo: Good night AG  :x_x
    October 22, 2020, 15:35
  • Flo: They are in a difficult position now: they have to bet on Kelderman now, because Hindley would need about 20-30s on TGH for the TT at least... but maybe I am too pessimistic
    October 22, 2020, 15:35
  • AG: anyway - lovely race, but I am off to bed.  catch you all tomorrow
    October 22, 2020, 15:34
  • AG: but Kelderman more chance of hanging on, and then taking it on the TT
    October 22, 2020, 15:34
  • AG: I dont thinl they will get Hindley to wait.  If htey didnt today, they arent likely to on Saturday.
    October 22, 2020, 15:33
  • Flo: But we will see on Sunday
    October 22, 2020, 15:33
  • Flo: I think Kelderman will lose more time on Saturday. And Hindley will either be ordered to wait or won't have enough road left to get a comfortable gap on TGH
    October 22, 2020, 15:33
  • Francois the Postman: Great stage to watch, sweet.
    October 22, 2020, 15:33
  • Francois the Postman: Sunweb kept 2 people in with a chance, looks like the choice paid off. If it was a wise one, Sunday will tell
    October 22, 2020, 15:31
  • Mellow Velo: Waste of domestique space
    October 22, 2020, 15:31
  • Flo: Nibali doesn't appear to be breathing
    October 22, 2020, 15:31
  • Francois the Postman: Now if anyone can tell Valverde :)
    October 22, 2020, 15:31
  • Flo: Yeah AG but overall it could have been a better position for the team
    October 22, 2020, 15:31
  • AG: so realistically, is still there best chance to win.
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • search: lol, Masnada
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • AG: but if Hindley had attacked, they may have put much more time into Kelderman
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • Francois the Postman: Yup, 2020 is the changing of the guards, generation wise. If 2019 wasn't already
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • Flo: Nice work Konrad
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • search: yep, Konrad ahead
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • Flo: I still believe if Hindley had been allowed to attack Sunweb would have been in a more comfortable position. Hindley about 20s ahead of TGH would have been more reassuring with what's still to come.
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • search: Konrad dropped, or the other way around?
    October 22, 2020, 15:30
  • Flo: Assuming he can do a better TT than the other 2
    October 22, 2020, 15:29
  • Francois the Postman: Well, race still on.
    October 22, 2020, 15:29
  • Flo: Let's say about 30s to play with on Saturday
    October 22, 2020, 15:29
  • Mellow Velo: About 15 seconds between the podium
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • Flo: :fp
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • search: Kelderman takes #pink by ~15s
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • AG: Wilco going to stumble into pink
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • Flo: Crawling to the finish
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • Francois the Postman: lol. You are getting better with age MV! That's more than I can say
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • Flo: There is Wilco
    October 22, 2020, 15:28
  • Leadbelly: was that a can of irn-bru hindley was swigging from
    October 22, 2020, 15:27
  • Mellow Velo: He's the first winner I have picked since Ganna......twice. :fp  :D
    October 22, 2020, 15:27
  • Flo: Best of the rest
    October 22, 2020, 15:27
  • Flo: Bilbao +45
    October 22, 2020, 15:27
  • AG: nice
    October 22, 2020, 15:26
  • Francois the Postman: phew
    October 22, 2020, 15:26
  • Mellow Velo: Sunweb 1-2 on the GC
    October 22, 2020, 15:26
  • Flo: Hindley wins
    October 22, 2020, 15:26
  • Francois the Postman: that was inevitable. He did well to break par when teh front two were holding back a bit
    October 22, 2020, 15:25
  • Flo: Kelderman is going to take pink but by a small margin... Sunweb tactics could come back to bite them
    October 22, 2020, 15:25
  • AG: he was ok when they were climbing.  its the flat he is struggling on
    October 22, 2020, 15:25
  • Flo: And now Kelderman is losing time again
    October 22, 2020, 15:24
  • Leadbelly: gap nearly up to 2 mins
    October 22, 2020, 15:24
  • search: apart from Pedrero or so
    October 22, 2020, 15:23
  • search: yeah, Hindley was the worst from the gc guys
    October 22, 2020, 15:23
  • Leadbelly: no actually tgh did better than hindely in thr earlier one
    October 22, 2020, 15:22
  • Flo: We will see near the finish but if Hindley could drop TGH, he is sacrificing his chance at pink for Kelderman
    October 22, 2020, 15:22
  • Flo: I was thinking the same Leadbelly
    October 22, 2020, 15:21
  • Leadbelly: did better than TGH in the earlier one i think
    October 22, 2020, 15:21
  • Mellow Velo: Last 2kms are flat
    October 22, 2020, 15:21
  • AG: whats his TT like?
    October 22, 2020, 15:21
  • Leadbelly: still, it must take some restraint to sit there and not work knowing you're only chance of winning the giro (will he ever get another chance) is within grasp
    October 22, 2020, 15:20
  • Mellow Velo: I am always awake at 3am..........it's 3pm I have a problem with. :lol
    October 22, 2020, 15:20
  • Mellow Velo: Another anti-climatic Giro final climb. Sprint coming up.
    October 22, 2020, 15:19
  • Francois the Postman: it's 3am and you're awake, that's progress!
    October 22, 2020, 15:19
  • Mellow Velo: I am bored now. :D
    October 22, 2020, 15:19
  • Francois the Postman: Well, he would, wouldn't he
    October 22, 2020, 15:18
  • Flo: Maybe TGH is afraid if he goes all out Hindley will drop him
    October 22, 2020, 15:18
  • Flo: FtP I'm thinking he wants Hindley to work, but Hindley seems to think it's amusing
    October 22, 2020, 15:17
  • Francois the Postman: Kelderman seems to have found some heart though. Warmed up a bit?
    October 22, 2020, 15:17
  • Francois the Postman: What's the conversation all about? I acn't figure out what there is to agree on
    October 22, 2020, 15:16
  • search: final 2k are flat, then he'll probably stop working alltogether
    October 22, 2020, 15:16
  • AG: yeah it certainly seems odd
    October 22, 2020, 15:16
  • Flo: He doesn't seem to be going all out, why is he trying to make Hindley work?
    October 22, 2020, 15:16
  • Flo: I don't understand what TGH is doing now
    October 22, 2020, 15:15
  • Leadbelly: maybe inside the last km
    October 22, 2020, 15:15
  • Flo: If he can of course
    October 22, 2020, 15:14
  • Flo: Shouldn't Hindley try an attack?
    October 22, 2020, 15:13
  • search: Majka dropped again from #pink group
    October 22, 2020, 15:13
  • Flo: Nice work Pello :dizzy
    October 22, 2020, 15:13
  • Flo: If he survives today he;ll have Hindley to drag him through stage 20. On stage 21 Wilco could take more time on TGH but I could also see him choke...but
    October 22, 2020, 15:13
  • Mellow Velo: Bilbao will catch the pair of them at this rate.
    October 22, 2020, 15:13
  • Flo: He seems to have found his rhythm
    October 22, 2020, 15:12
  • search: and the final two days should be quite good for him
    October 22, 2020, 15:11
  • search: still looking alright for Wilco to take the jersey now
    October 22, 2020, 15:11
  • AG: Bilkbao dropping Fuglsang now
    October 22, 2020, 15:11
  • Flo: If only Kelderman could have stayed with Bilbao
    October 22, 2020, 15:10
  • Francois the Postman: I made it through those years, so everything after that was downhill, so to speak ;)
    October 22, 2020, 15:08
  • Francois the Postman: The 70s were my forming years. That's 2 world cup footballs and Zoetemelk 6 or 7x 2nd in the TdF. The one year he won, Hinault dropped out with a busted knee.
    October 22, 2020, 15:07
  • Flo: Let TGH do all the work, if they get caught by chasers it's good for Sunweb, if not he can try to jump away
    October 22, 2020, 15:06
  • Flo: Yeah smart
    October 22, 2020, 15:06
  • search: Hindley won't do any work at all, understandably
    October 22, 2020, 15:05
  • search: yeah, maybe the next one to lose the Giro that way ;)
    October 22, 2020, 15:05
  • Flo: Kelderman now actually gaining time on front 2, they are messing with each other
    October 22, 2020, 15:05
  • Flo: Mental games?
    October 22, 2020, 15:05
  • Flo: What is TGH up to cinstantly chatting to Hindley
    October 22, 2020, 15:05
  • AG: if he can catch Bilbao, that would be a chance of saving it
    October 22, 2020, 15:04
  • AG: Kelderman looked a tiny bit better there.
    October 22, 2020, 15:04
  • Flo: If this was going to happen to anyone it'd be Wilco though
    October 22, 2020, 15:03
  • Francois the Postman: hey, this is NOTHING compared to the Raas years ;)
    October 22, 2020, 15:03
  • AG: so sorry FTP.  as you say - ita hard beign Dutch
    October 22, 2020, 15:03
  • Francois the Postman: 2nd gt where a broken 'virtual leader' has a long ride in
    October 22, 2020, 15:02
  • Flo: This is crazy
    October 22, 2020, 15:02
  • Francois the Postman: that's it, over and out.
    October 22, 2020, 15:02
  • Mellow Velo: Wilco completely blown
    October 22, 2020, 15:02
  • AG: Kelderman cant even hold Fuglsang and Bilbao
    October 22, 2020, 15:01
  • Leadbelly: must be the cold
    October 22, 2020, 15:01
  • Flo: Birdie and Pello immediately drop Wilco
    October 22, 2020, 15:01
  • Leadbelly: incredible. doesnt make an effort
