Pinot should not be driving the favourites group on when his teammate Geniez is 5 minutes up the road.

Thought Pinot would've been a good pun for a solo win today, but I suppose he's still more or less in GC contact Thinking

I think Landa will've cost me a full house badge today. Never mind; I imagine there'll be a lot of very similar scores on the board. Can't see many people having picked Geniez.
