Sounds more like crash/mechanical problems to me. There are only 4 corners, and his time is more than 20 seconds slower than last year.(with way worse form)

Yeah, he prolly hit the deck on that 180 degree corner. This eliminates him for the overall though, he isn't going to ride away from the likes of Quintana for instance.

Or maybe Gesink just didn't want to take any risk at all and did it slowly.

6:59 Moreno (Katusha)

Looks like a podium for J-Rod's helper.

Valverde wins, 6.46. He'll take the overall too, nothing much to be done about that.

Except that it's his 3d race day.

VDB is a pretty good prologue rider, BTW. He was 2nd or 3d here before.
