Shame the camera missed the move by the three out of the Peloton until they caught Tony Martin.

My thoughts, too.
Martin worked over the Argos boys and then Liquigas worked over Martin.

Good race, that. Liquigas played the tactics to perfection, and Tony Martin was really impressive. The modifications to the course have really paid off, I think - not much time to recover from the second climb of the Mammolshain before they have to do it again, which allows the gaps that are created to be a bit bigger, and create more chance of them staying away. Coverage was, as usual, excellent, HR deserve a lot of credit for their commitment to it - Köln got the final hour, which was pleasing enough, but to get a race broadcast almost in its entirety (OK, we did get the entirety a couple of years ago) on German TV right now is pretty crazy.

Forever tête de la course.
