    It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.

      A pan flat time trial with the only bumps on the profile being bridges over the Rhein. Expect a super strong man Time Triallist to win this. A Tony Martin, Primoz Roglic, Stefan Kung type.

      GC guys will need to do well but I really cannot see any of them getting close to the win today.

      My bets Roglic 7-2; Kung 6-1 and Kittel 40-1 e/w.

      T'is a shame when asked 'so what do you have to aid recovery after a tough stage?'.

      Chris Froome didn't reply:-

      Which GC hopeful will stack it on a wet white line today? Bound to be one.

      Ha, mine too. Wouldn't mind in some ways, Mikel Landa might become team leader then.

      They just showed Boo-Hoo-Hanni doing a 50p turn round a corner on Eurosport

      Don't know why they don't just cruise round on a regular bike if they are not bothered about time.
