On a Real Flyer G17-150
Jos Van Emden (LottoNL-Jumbo) had been flying well under my radar, in fact I don't think I have encounter him in a race ever before. He started the day 120 riders behind the Maglia Rosa of Nairo Quintana. He was also four hours and nearly twenty minutes behind the time of the race leader. But today, today he was posting the best time at each and every time check, including the most important, the final one. Now with a time trial, the rider with the best time will sit in the "hot seat" until someone comes along and betters his time. Van Emden would be waiting a long time for the masters of the discipline to start, let alone finish. At the end of the day, no one was able to take his seat away from him.
