It's just a matter of who will win from the breakaway.

He's quitted the Giro being exhausted before evne the final week, and now this. I think he might have pfeiffer or something


Yeah, he should have been fully rested from the Giro if it wasn't a big deal that caused him to quit. I hope his season ain't over.

Both Haas and Kragh are proper puncheurs, my money is on one of them now.

I doubt that TJVG understands what being a Domestique entails, have never seen him perform in that role to any extent that could be called useful. GVA on the other hand is not renowned for when the road points upward to any great extent, so him dropping off is understandable.

GVA worked a lot, he took a big shift. Of course, because we are talking about Van Avermaet, one of the most respected riders of the peloton.

Lets wait with the TJ-bash. Its very possible his level simply isn't higher.

Well TJVG did well there, not dropped, even all of BMC made it too.

Front group is working hard, because Cort is still chasing, this will keep a lot of them honest longer :)

Yeah, but he is riding all out in the break, because of his GC - so will probably be spent at the end.... same with Monfort, obviously.

The 4 behind are working like clockwork, the front group is breaking up, because Taaramae and Gogl will not work.

I predict the two groups come together.

They got rid of Taaramae with a couple of attacks, they should be able to work now.

Cort group looks around 20 secs behind.

BMC is going to blow up tomorrow, leaving Porte alone early, they spent way too much today..... I get a feeling of deja-vu.

Kragh has stopped working in the break, 18K to go and he is starting to conserve strength, while the rest are still working hard.

I think the other GC teams, are forcing BMC to do all the work today, so Porte is vulnerable tomorrow.
