I think stage 9 of the Vuelta is going to be the one to watch, less than 60 miles but 3 proper climbs. I'm looking forward to the whole race though

Good for Kittel, enjoy your retirement

Managed to plan a vacation during the Vuelta so don't know if I'll see too much of it. I never get that excited about the Vuelta, then I think about how far away the Giro is and the race becomes more interesting.

Nairo surprising today looking so animated :wink:

Was kind of surprising that group with Roglic,Quintana & Uran got that gap today too

I have to wait for a replay & watch to see how it all came about

That's pretty bad from Astana.. Letting 3 gc contenders ride away from them on just stage 2.

Chloe Dygert-Owen absolutely destroying a fairly strong domestic field in the Colorado Classic... 4/4 stages, every Jersey. Look out 2020 olympics! Wonder if she’ll focus on TT or Team Pursuit? (Or both?)

Absolutely no competition at her level for this race. Good fer their team as the prize purses were nice (for once).
I would be curious to see her against the top World tour TT girls for women's elite TT distances .

but not good for the race. No drama, just systematic destruction, worse than the dominanace of Team Sky. It was a yawn.

Chloe Dygart-Owen took that race and walked away with it... Every stage and every jersey. It was defintiely a dominant performance. Perhaps the field wasn't the strongest, but there were some names on that start list that should have been able to hold onto her and were no where to be seen. I've been following her career since Richmond Worlds where she won the junior TT and Road race.... since then, her ambitions have been primarily on the track, racking up WC wins and National titles. Her road seasons haven't been overwhelming, but she's also had some injuries. It would be cool to nice to see her in the European peloton, racing with the best. I think she'd be more than competitive.

He was very strong, also his team was amazing.
A hungarian got a stage win too, maybe Attila Valter will join World Tour too for next year.
It was nice to watch l'Avenir on TV.
