Ah that's a shame. I hope he bounces back. Atapuma is in the front group, announced now by the moto guy :)

Feillu attacks! This is turning out to be a good stage, racing-wise. A lot of peripherical contenders attacking.

This was a nice stage. Thomson was completely dying at the end. Ride of the day together with Sérgio Ribeiro. That man worked his *ss off for Efapel.

Of note: José Mendes lost +5 minutes today.

+1
Thoroughly enjoyed it. I finally watched the last dozen kms, last night.
The steep climb produced the small groups and the rolling run in did the rest.

Thomson left his all on the road. Deserves his time in yellow.

Stage 2. 191,5 km. Oliveira do Bairro to Trofa

Image

With 14 km to go there’s a 4rd category climb. About 2,8 km at 4,6%.

Break of the day: David Gutierrez (Onda), Alexander Riabkin (Caja Rural), Mikel Bizkarra (Orbea), Xabier Zabalo (Orbea), David Belda (Burgos BH), Duber Quintero (Colombia – Coldeportes), Cyril Bessy (Saur – Sojasun) e Ferekalsi Debesay (MTN Qhubeka).

3 minutes is the difference to the peloton. 79 km to go

Both Sérgio Ribeiro (Efapel-Glassdrive) and Vidal Fitas (Carmim-Prio DS) have made clear they will go for the sprint if there's a chance, but they won't danger the main goal-winning a Volta.

We will see if the're bluffing in a bit. UnitedHealthcare won't be forever at the front of the peloton I think.

After the 4th category Climb, we had Quintero (Coldeportes), Bessy (Saur) and Gutierrez (Onda-Boavista). All of them had been on the break of the day. The biggest advantage of the trio was 1:20, but they couldn't work together. The peloton driven by Efapel-Glassdrive got to them.

In the end, it was chaotic sprint. There was a fall in a cobbled section inside the 3kms. Ricardo Mestre (Carmim-Prio) was involved, but didn't seem to be injured (see edit). Saur Sojason surprised everyone by launching the sprint early. For some time it looked like Poulhiés was going to take it, but Francesco Lasca just carried too much speed. Rensburg was probably the fastest all things considered, but came from further behind.

Stage 2 Results

Francesco LASCA Caja Rural 4:53:08
2 Reinardt VAN RENSBURG - J MTN/Qhubeka m.t.
3 Stéphane POULHIES Saur/Sojasun m.t.
4 Jose Luis CANO Andalucia m.t.
5 Boy VAN POPPEL United Healthcare m.t.
6 Sérgio RIBEIRO Efapel/Glassdrive m.t.
7 Antonio CARVALHO - J Selecção Nacional Portuguesa m.t.
8 Hugo SABIDO LA Alumínios/Antarte m.t.
9 Manuel ANTON Burgos BH/Castilla e Leon m.t.
10 Filipe CARDOSO Efapel/Glassdrive m.t.

went to see the volta as this stage passed through my home town.

the breakaway was forming when they passed by me and had about 50 meters on the peloton who were agreeing to slow down and let the break go.

that plus a couple beers made for some jolly fun time

This one is pure gold!

Asked about Nuno Ribeiro's condition after his crash yesterday, Efapel's DS says: "He has a small hole on his knee so he'll be fine". I would love you all to understand portuguese and listen to this on its original form :D

He'll finish 6th just like Gesink a few years back in the Vuelta.

Nice lack of coverage from Cyclingnews here onm Stage 3 . This forum wasn't much help, from what I can tell on the no english version website and I had to let an iframe for the first time in years that opened a window to what looked like a 20dpi scan of the results sheet..

Someone called Cesal or probably that thing that looks like a spec of dust is actually an r, won from what looks like a break that ended up a minute before the peloton. I assume that means no change to the GC but I can't find it.. oh there it is off the bottom of the page! Fonte up to second... nothing else changes

Oh and actual climb tomorrow at the end tomorrow and another one later, for some reason I thought there was only one near the end.

Ricardo Mestre crashed again :( He's been involved in almost every crash this year... Carmin-Prio still at the front of the peloton so hopefully he's feeling well....

Sérgio Ribeiro doing his best impression of Cândido Barbosa after Feillu attacked. Sabido at the front on the flamme rouge. Mestre cracked after all the crashes.
