With four more days in store for the riders, Tracy Moseley still has the chance to claw back the time lost on today's opening stage. In the men's race, it's still all to play for. But judging by Shirley's powerful stage starts, the other riders are going to struggle to power up and past him over the next few days.




MENTIONS: @transrezia / @paulaston / @SamNeedham / @hopetech / @Jamesy-Boy
