Embarrassment for Alaphilippe at Liege-Bastogne-Liege and opening weekend of the Giro

Six and a half hours of racing ends with embarrassment for Julian Alaphilippe as celebreates too early, losing the race to Primoz Roglic and ultimately being relegated to 5th place for his improper sprint line.

The Giro opened this weekend with big time dents into major GC contenders, with Nibali, Fuglsang, and Kruijswijk losing over a minute to Geraint Thomas. Bad news stuck for Astana who lost Miguel Angel Lopez on stage 1 and Aleksander Vlasov on stage 2.
