The breakway is now in the ramps of Galibier ¡What a beautiful scene! The human versus the elements. PELLIZZOTI ATTACKS WITH ALL, HE WANTS TO GIVE A BIG STEP IN THE GC AND IS PUTTING ALL OVER THE TABLE. BETANCUR IS DROPPING, BETANCUR IS LITERALLY DIE, WE CAN SEE IT IN HIS FACE... THE GUY IS ABSOLUTELY OVERCOOKED. AND DI LUCA TOO IS MISSING IN THE DISTANCE. THIS IS A BATTLE BETWEEN FRANCO AND JOHAN CHAVES, THE NEW LUCHO HERRERA... ¡¡¡CHAVES PARTEEEE!!!! THE COLOMBIAN KID WANTS TO MAKE HISTORY IN THE GIRO D'ITALIA, HE IS DROPPING PELLIZZOTI AND CLIMBING TO THE TOP. COLOMBIAN PEOPLE ARE NOW LIVING THE BEST DAY OF THEIR LIFES. COLOMBIA IS MAKING HISTORY. CHAVES WILL BE THE NEXT ESCARABAJO WHICH ACHIEVES THE VICTORY IN A QUEEN STAGE OF THE GIRO. THE LAST WAS LUIS HERRERA.

[...] last meters for chaves, he's the winner of the stage. What a performance of chavito. Pellizzoti passes the finish line at 12".
Nibali is is in the lasts kilometers of the climb and has the support of paolo tiralongo which is doing an incredible effort for his leader. Sánchez is the next at 15" and wiggins misses... "pop" ¡¡34"!!!
Nibali is doing it, hes putting the maglia rosa in a hard situation.

Di Luca and Betancur passes the finish line 1'05 after Chaves. Nibali is arriving, we can see Sánchez a couple of meters after him, Wiggins doesnt look well... He is now in a critical moment. After Bradley there are a group of five guys, Robert Gesink, Arnold Jeannesson, José Rujano, Damiano Cunego and Fabio Duarte. Gesink is assuming the responsibility.

So what happened to the classifications? :p
Nice stage though. I wish we'll witness something like this in May too. :o
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Instead of Contador retirement and the absence of Froome due to a two years ban the race will be so exciting. For the experts these are the favourites to win the general classification:
*** Van Garderen, Talansky.
** Pinot, Quintana, Dombrowski, Chaves, Kelderman
* Elissonde, Aru, Bardet, Betancur, Dennis.

Van Garderen arrives in France with two podiums in the Grand Boucle and with the Dauphiné Liberé in his pocket. Talansky has won the Tour of Suisse and he wants to improve the 4° position of the last year. The route suits him and he is confidence about his possibilities of victory. Thibaut Pinot has made an incredible first part of season dominating Paris Nice and Volta a Catalunya. He is the wheel to follow in the mountains. Nairo Quintana was the past year the first rider since Pantani which takes the win in two Grand Tours in the same season after achieve the double Giro D'Italia and Vuelta a España. At the moment these are the main favourites. But for sure the race will bring us many surprises.

Ah I see, thanks.

Just seen on the news than van Garderen has been attacked by a knife wielding maniac and has had to pull out of the race, sad news :(
