Apparently Tankink and Vandewalle dropped, but that might also be incorrect 'tweeting'.

No mention of that by Roman Mendoza. I think Henao attacked from the peloton.

Yeah, he peaked like 7 months too early this year.

Edit: Izagirre, Kolobnev and Sulzberger apparently dropped and are 12 secs behind Gesink, Henao, Valverde and Rui Costa.

Only 4 possible winners now, Valverde got this in the bag if the others can't drop both Movistars.

No, he says they do the most work. Which makes sense. Valverde just needs to sit on.

They're riding on the front of the group, at least that's what I understand.

Edit: Henao and Valverde 10 secs in front of Costa and Gesink.

Even more of a waste when you got guys like Valverde, Henao, Costa, and Gesink going for the win. This sounds like a great race. :(

All four of them back together now apparently, if the Movistar won't work the peloton still has a chance as well.
