after handbags at five paces yesterday, it was apologies at five paces today.. Pogacar's ride eclipsed Quintana's hope of retaining the third step on the podium, and Valverde had to ride to the limit to retain second place. This meant that the youngest guy on the race was being chased on the road by the oldest guy on the race. Roglic just did enough, mainly riding in the wheels.

It is unlikely that there will be a shake-up tomorrow, so barring prangs, that'll be how it finishes.

Pre race, Roglic was a good tip, but very many other aspects of the race were quite unpredictable.
