Phew...I wouldn't translate his words exactly like that  :angel , but on such a busy day  :-x

The second stage of Tour de L'Ain and only the best climbers remained in the front group. Surprise guy of the day probably #ineos Castroviejo who turned out to be #ineos Bernal's last domestique (remember, Bernal also has a guy named Froome and another named Thomas to help him). Castroviejo he did a fantaastic job at it, neutralizing a very dangerous attack by #jumbo Kruijswijk before Bernal himself closed to gap.

Roglic got the race right where he wanted it to go, with a lead on Bernal from the first stage, and more red muscle fibers than Bernal, he controlled the group with his domestiques and then won the sprint in a comfortable way.

Maybe there will be a new sprint on the Grand Colombier tomorrow...the racing has been good so far in this race!

Mollema broke something on his bike (pedal, cleat, gear hanger or something) when he was opening up his sprint and may get his seconds back in the GC, thanks to the 3 km rule.
