    When he won in Calar Alto in La Vuelta a España 2017 I had an 80/1 e/w bet for the stage.

    Anyone know where I can see the individual climb profiles? They used to be on the official website and looked like this (this is from 2018 ascent of Colombiere):

    On the website for today's stage it only shows this:

    If he wants to fight for The King Of The Mountains Guillaume Martin should start scoring points today.

    Try Steephill, look at the top of the section on Tour De France page, the daily preview with cyclissimo has good information on that days stage

    Going to be a long old day for Geraint, dropped on the first climb and so many more climbs to come.

    Looks like Pogacar intends to make a statement today

    He is riding like an absolute monster. If he gets the win here it will be a legendary ride.

    I just switched over to watch the Eclipse for 5 minutes and he's taken a minute out of Woods <yikes>

    Pogacar sensible in not going for the stage win - can't see anyone but him winning the GC now

    He might win the whole race by ten minutes + with the way he’s going.

    Roglic abandons, I guess the Vuelta will be the new target.

    going with the same riders again today, but Richie Porte rather than Pogacar.

    Porte 28
    Bilbao 34
    Dan Martin 23
    Lopez 11

    All 0.25pts

    Pogacar is favourite for this stage but it’s going to be very wet and I can see him looking after himself even more today.
    O’Connor and Kuss for interest pre race.

    Yeah, that’s why I went away from him today. The issue for everyone is that it’s a summit finish so if he’s within a couple of minutes of the break at the foot of the climb then it could be another win for him.

    I expect a breakaway to go ten minutes clear today, so many riders lost bucketfuls of time yesterday and Pocacar won’t need to chase them.

    He basically has to stay on the bike, he can mark WVA until the last climb and then put more time into him. The rest look well beaten and I can’t see them worrying him at all today.

    Called into Quincy yesterday (on way down to South) to liberate some local refreshments. An interesting perspective from a local on the arrival of the tour the previous day. 'It was all over in 5 minutes' but at least all our roads and potholes on the route were fixed.'
    Nice one

    MVDP pulls out. Not sure that should be allowed to happen in the TDF without injury.
