 Looked like the whole French team was flying. Must have been a puncture or crash for their junior woman to knock them off too spot

 @dougfs: Tatiana Tournut. That explains the 18:09 Lap time. Sarrou pulled the French Team back from 7th to 5th. Prior to Tatiana's seat going to pieces the French were in 1st.

 Interesting varying tactics from the different teams. 2nd and 3rd place sent their MenU23 out last, going by the times both kept pace with, but couldnt reel in, Schurter. Or maybe he was just toying with them, knowing he only has to stay ahead, conserving his energy for Friday and Sunday.

 @AyJayDoubleyou: Nino has finished his round with rear wheel puncture...

 Just an observation on tactics. No team began with a woman. Only one team, Belgium, ended with a woman.

 Anyone know why Bex McConnell wasn’t in the team relay for Australia?
  • 2 0
 Because it wouldn't have made for a result that warranted the effort given the prospects of something better later on?

 No Jolanda Neff for Switzerland, No Kate Courtney for USA, etc.
