I see he's been relegated to 5th anyway for cutting up another rider in the sprint.

All his switching back and forth it's a wonder he didn't bring somebody off. :x

Roglic deserved the win but Alaphilippe did him two favours there, and Marc Hirschi was on the loosing end of one of them.

Although I'm not an Alaphilippe fan I must admit he enlivened the race up.

Hirschi would have won the sprint. Alaphilippe got what he deserved - being made to look like a prize [rude word removed].

Suprised there's no mention of the Ladies LBL with Lizzie Diegnan taking the top step on the podium and Hannah Barnes coming in 6th.

Oh dear it's the curse of the rainbow jersey. :shock:
