A great day for Ineos, especially Michal Kwiatkowski.
And Carapaz although Pogacar can I think get the KOTM jersey back with a good time trial. Another breakaway for tomorrow I should think whilst the top ten defend what they have and save their legs for the ITT.

Primoz Roglic in total control, he’s able to cover off attacks before they have any chance of getting started...once again the bad luck went to Richie Porte puncturing on the gravel section.

Second stage win of the tour and very well deserved for Soren Kragh Andersen of Sunweb...quite a funny last couple of Kilometres with Soren unsure of the gap between himself and the chasing group over 45 seconds back, he didn’t seem to realise he had such a comfortable lead and rode practically flat out to the the finish line....no change at the top of the GC today.

Well if you don't want to listen to your team 🙂. They have had a good tour Sunweb, chasing those stages.

Wow. I cannot believe that happened. Roglic broke to an extent, but to put it into perspective he still finished fifth in the stage. That was just an incredible ride by Pogacar, well clear of Dumoulin in second on the stage who just pipped Richie Porte who rolled back the years to get on the podium. The looks of disbelief on Dumoulin and Van Aert's (another great ride) faces when Pogacar came up to the finish was just shock after they had dominated the race as a team. With respect to Team UAE, Pogacar has just freelanced to victory.

That is up there with 1989 and Greg Lemond v Laurent Fignon.

What a tour.

An epic day in Tour de France history no exaggeration to say that with Le planche de belle filles the scene of yet more drama, Roglic looked totally stunned at the end as he might...Pogacar has rode a very aggressive race and deserves to be standing on the top step of the podium in Paris tomorrow.
