to be fair, apparently Jumbo has some problems with the gearing, it's not the first time that this happened.

Schachmann really smashed the time trial by the way, and won by a good margin although others in the end had better conditions:

Split times were not realesed unfortunately, but #ef Daniel Martinez was awarded with the mountain jersey, so apparently he was the quickest on the climb (although bike changes influenced the times of course).

Today we're heading over to the Basque sterrato

some teams did a recon, and apparently the surface itself is not as rough as in the north, but this could change in the rain today, and some roads (and especially entries into the sterrato) are very narrow, and with muros in between the gravel sections.

Overall this should be enough to make a major selection, I'd think.

edit: according to Strava the finish itself is 600m at 8% then. Not sure how accurate that is though.
