I only watched a replay of the last 15km or so. Some of the teams were very eager to get early trains going. Too eager. Deceuninck got the timing just about right and hit the front with just over 1km to go. Just one problem - Jakobsen was nowhere to be seen. According to the team's report he got boxed in going round the penultimate corner.

Sagan was the main one to profit, but McCabe (a young sprinter according to Phil) also did a great job for the US team. Since the legs are obviously there, McCabe could be one of the few (or only?) quicks in with a chance today.

There was a bonus sprint with ~10km to go. The beneficiaries from it were Mads Pedersen, Grossssschartner and Bennett (in that order). We can draw a few inferences from that.

Pedersen was there to stop others from getting extra seconds --- Porte is feeling good?

Grossssssssssschartner continuing on from Turkey and Romandie? I don't think so as he then finished 15 seconds back at the finish  --- Schachmann must be Bora's guy for GC?
