That's true but Sagan was not favourite last night... Probably his odds dropped after the majority placed bets on him.

well, if it's true that sagan even chased contador on the descent, I suppose that sagan was leading the chase, and then even gapped the others, this he could rock on the poggio descent. This year he will not have to sit back and not chase cancellara because of Nibs. Can't wait for that race.

I don't know about that.. It was last night around 21 or 22 CET I checked these odds.

awesome. thanks.
Wiggins, Evans, J-Rod, the stinker and bertie all in lead group with Nibali and Froome off the front. Cance and Gilbert also with the lead pack. Pozzovivo to crush everyone on Green Mountain. No catching cold down there.

Boonen did well today, looking good.

Uhh? It wasn't a total disaster, but losing 2 minutes in such an easy stage doesn't look good, with most of his competitors in the front group. Most people who finished behind him probably didn't even bother.

Without seeing the race or knowing what his effort levels where its kind of hard to say whether boonen did well or not. Like Contador lost time but seems to have been an animator on the final climb. I think its good for Tom ad shows he hasnt lost that much from the infection
