Alaphilippe took a bottle with 17k to go (no sustenance can be handed out in the final 20k) so was given a 20s penalty.
Harsh but the rules are there for safety.
Fantastic day’s racing today. Something for everyone. 1 HC & 2 Cat 1 climbs.
Downhill speeds of 97 km/h
So much talk about Van Aert, he’s a phenomenal rider - I’d love to see him get in a few breakaways and go on and win the whole thing.
