[QUOTE=Christian;1135977]Regardless of Monfort's team being a running joke I think you would be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't like this guy ... since he joined LEOPARD TREK I have seen and read a lot of interviews with him, he is just a classy guy ... well-spoken, soft-spoken, friendly, laid-back ... that's why I like him (besides some great performances on the bike) so I hope he can defend his lead. Although the cards are stacked against

Yeah i really hope he wins this. And i want him to win something big during the season. He really deaerves it.

Oliver Zaugg has abandoned Tour de Mediterranean with broken finger.

I think someone of the break is going to get the stage, the rest is quite hard and there are good riders there.

it would make sense because there aren't bonus seconds but 3 minutes is not a big gap with 60 km to go

i'd like lele or kern to take it though

let's see if there will be attacks on tanneron

Anyway it remain a lot and it will have a lot of fight by the general.

In this regard the team leader has put the very young Jungels front, and Peraud to Kadri AG2R. Blanco and IAM have not got one, but have strong teams. It would be interesting to know if the radio works back to front taking Jungels or if this man is working in the breakaway, I guess not.

But remember one important fact, the best general of the escapees is Jeremy Roy, a minute and a half, which is now virtual leader with two minutes and Pinot is with him.

So the fight is served by multiple fronts.

What a pity the French summaries are so bad.

The peloton is starting to chase in earnest. Shack on the front.
