Great Alex Dowsett stage win at Giro.  Another Brit. In the 2nd group.  Excellent. 

Superb performance by Dowsett, used all his time trialling ability to power home. Very good showing by Wigan lad Matthew Holmes to finish third.

Bad news for Simon Yates testing positive for Covid-19 but it does explain why he just hasn't had the legs in the last few days. Hope he makes a rapid recovery.

Outstanding day's racing yesterday despite the Covid-19 disruption. Sagan finally ended his long wait for a win with a superb performance to take the stage.

Not tuned it to today's coverage yet so don't know if there have been any more withdrawals. Fingers crossed the race can make it to Milan.

He must have cheered up a bit. Good to see him take part in the Scheldeprijs yesterday.

Yes.  I read that.  Great. It must be challenging for belief/ motivation given past achievements. 

I found this years World Champs race absorbing.  It  reminded of how I was  gripped with Copenhagen 2011 and Doha 2016 races.  Waiting, waiting ,  waiting for a few seconds of Cavendish at the finale (with mixed results - blasted Sagan!).

Loved the Ronde earlier...shame about Alaphalipe though.

Just watched the highlights. It really was a lousy way for his season to end. The poor bloke looked in absolute agony. From the point of view of the race it would have been great to see him disrupting van Aert and van der Poel. Still a totally absorbing finish though.

And good to see Cav still plugging away.

Above the snowline in the Giro today but the roads are clear and the mountains look beautiful in the sunshine.

One bloke at the top of the first mountain going old school and handing his newspaper to one of the riders for a bit of insulation on the descent.

i didn't see that day 1 coming.  Froome to claw back 11 minutes is not going to happen? 

I was expecting him to be a bit stronger too but he did say in the interview that he hadn't recovered the top end strength in the leg he mangled. I imagine he'll just try and ride himself into it from now on and build up his strength a bit.

Lost it in the crash last year.

Cavendish : my last race?

A GB cycling superstar whatever he does now🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴

Please don't give Cavendish a commentary job, he is almost as unintelligable as Jones-Buchannan. I need subtitles on for both of them.
