"After the climbing on stage one of the Tour de la Provence has finished, they hit a narrow coastal road with 50kph winds coming in off the sea - it's going to be tricky."

And one of the last races for Super Tuck and aero forearms on the bars ...

Nice to see JA and the rainbow stripes in the break :)

It is, although at the moment my money is on them being caught by the bunch.

 

As I typed that the clock came back on screen and it’s just a 25 second gap now

Wow that was some finish.

JA stuck with it very impressively and did a lead out job and then I thought Arnaud had it but Ballerini just powered away. Fantastic.
