Reguigui won the 5th stage , that's why heywoodu kept silence i felt something strange  

I'm talking about the ones who are from countries where more and more are getting in the bigger teams, like Eritrea. They are in it to be a pro cyclist, not just to compete in those championships. Obv

I wonder if these couple of stages will be the most watched Paris-Nice stages in history.

Alaphilippe aka the unexpected best team mate of Wout Van Aert today :p Van Aert won Milano-San Remo beating in the sprint Julian Alaphilippe. The peloton arrived some seconds behind led by Michael Mathews ahead of Peter "Mr. will never win San Remo" Sagan

The two belgian superstars Van Aert and Evenepoel are shining the most after the restart. The dutch star Van Der Poel needs to do some catching up. :cool:

Meanwhile tomorrow the Dauphine starts, which promises to be another fantastic borefest with the Roglic-Kruijswijk-Dumoulin trifecta against the Bernal-Thomas-Sivakov-Froome squad. Five stages, five uphill finishes, so don't expect too much excitement :d

J-V’s turn to take charge of the climbing today:  Wout van Aert takes the win.

Onto the final climb in the Dauphiné.  Wout van Aert in the yellow has already peeled off the main group.  15k to go.

 

What day is it today? :coffee: Oh, an odd-numbered day.   Must be Ineos’ turn to lead the climbing.  :evil:

 

Sure enough!

 

Turning into a kind of Olympic Marathon with  :ETH taking on :KEN

 

J-V take over for the final 2k.

 

And Roglič does it again!  Bernal well beaten!

Very interesting stage today. I was really impressed by Sepp Kuss. Up until the final km it looked like a breeze for him, while other favorites were dropping like flies. Even after the Sky/Ineos  train were on their usual power trip. Don't know when was the last time an american was still up there with the europeans and south americans on a real final HC climb. Maybe Talansky and TJVG years back. Everyone will be talking of Jumbo-Visma leading trio going in the Tour, but this guy from Colorado is going to be a valuable piece. Definitely earned his spot for his Le Tour debut.

Off again in the Dauphiné - Davide Formolo off on a long solo run, Arkea are temporarily in charge of the chasing duties.  On the Madeleine at the moment, so classic ground.

 

Arkea were only left in charge whilst the big boys were having their lunch, so now. (checks calendar) as per Agreement 2020-478/1 Section 1 Paragraph 3, Jumbo-Visma have taken back over.  :teacher:

There was hail late on yesterday, after the main riders had finished their climb.  Check out what it was like for the peleton.  :yikes:

Straight fight now between Formolo on his solo break & J-V on the chase.  10k to go.

 

My prediction? Roglič to jump off the pack with 500m to go to win by 10 secs & take the bonus.  Going out on a limb, I know.
