Javier Moreno is one of the guys in the move, so it's quite dangerous no doubt.

Really surprised there is no uniSA rider in the break.
Peter Sagan:
"I under-evaluated him (Gerald Ciolek) a little bit. I was watching Cancellara, who was trying to break free, and maybe I did too much work," Sagan said. "Ciolek stayed in the wheels and he took my wheel to do the sprint and was able to beat me. I went too early in the sprint."

Peter Sagan:
“We went away in a break on the Oude Kwaremont, but then Cancellara went for it on the Paterberg and I wasn’t able to follow him,”

Clarke and Clarke in front now :D

Can Clarke make it a double from last year? Or will Clarke save GreenEdge's TDU? :p

If he can do it for a second year running he will be my hero.

Luckily Simon is only a minute and a half down on GC, Sky will not wait long to begin the chase (bad news for Will).

With only two riders in the break no clarke will win today" to small a group, more riders will be needed for the break to suceed.Looks like a bunch sprint may be on the cards.

The couple of previews i've managed to watch have both said that there is no way it will end in a bunch sprint. Perhaps just a select group with all GC contenders in there too.

Whats with all the different 'holiday adverts' P+P are doing during the race? The programme becomes a tourist channel out of nowhere then switches back to the race.

Fair enough, I just wondered why it was as it seemed not in keeping with the race at all.

As a sponsor its good business for them.
