As they say. You can’t win the race from the swim but you can definitely lose it.  I wonder if Lionel and Sebby are completely out of contention for a podium. Haven’t seen them both this far back before.  
 

and here comes wurf

Lange dropped from the lead 5

wurf making up time already (about 45 sec)

Lange is still closer to the front than I thought he would be.  

I wish they would track wurf sanders and Seb more.  

Josh is doing great in the front 5

Lange out. But look how farking windy it is where he was crying on the side of the road.  That’s more than the 5km hr the commentators are saying. 

Also how many mistakes is Greg making. Ffs.

I’m surprised how much Greg is getting wrong.  

He normally repeats himself a lot but his data is correct. Not today. 

Wrong money. Reading the temp from the graphics wrong. 

Saying an age grouper is passing Lauren. Ffs. An age grouper isn’t passing her at 25km into the bike.

No joke - someone in this top 5 group will get hit with a penalty soon

Interesting that mark allen said the wurf Seb and sanders weren’t a factor for the lead 5.

hmm, confusing, German TV saying Ali has been given a penalty but nobody else has reported it.

Maybe they are saying he should be given one. 

He took way longer than 25 seconds to drop out when Tim overtook him.  More like a minute.  

Not to mention all the other time way inside the zone.  

Disappointing to see really.
