Seems to be some problems with the race radios due to the mountains

The gap is about 5 minutes

I think Boaro topped the cat 3 first

Thanks for the updates Simon - I was semi-following the ticker as well. Loving the google translations, especially with my purist pick Marque in the break riding for that renowned team "Fifth of Sandpaper".

They seem to be reporting Bos, Nizzolo, Sancho, Herrada, Boeckmans but its early days - have you seen Cav reported as winner elsewhere?

OPQS seemed to think he'd won. Don't know where they got the idea.
