    My philosophy is that if you haven't achieved plumber's butt, you're not working hard enough.

    For some reason it struck me as hilariously perfect that the malle moto guy has a pathetic umbrella while everyone else has some version of a mobile factory to work in.



    After the last week the price of a Gordini might have dropped into a feasible price range.

    Is the umbrella strapped to the crossbar like we used to do with fishing rods? :rofl:rofl

    I notice that the 1st 10 riders each get 2' between them at the DSS and after that one rider every 30" after that. Previously it was two every 30s so the dust will be a little bit more manageable at the back.

    Absent from this morning's tracking, Joan Barreda appears to be leading the motorcycle pack at km 195. Since he started fourth, behind Duclos, Coma and Metge, this would also put him in the lead of today's stage. We will find out more when he finishes this sector in a few minutes' time.
