Scratch that Bouhanni down to 3rd Sad

Tjallingi 1st 3'44" followed by Rojas 2nd

This is Larsson's to win I reckon

Im relying on Hivert. Meersman came in 8th, so he wont score come the finish of it.

Or not, Klier has ruined that. Despite that crash, Monfort only 40 seconds down, not out of it at least as he may have been with a long TT
