Even continental teams have more riders there. Where are Theuns, Stuyven...?
Both that and the fact that said teams seem unwilling to actually take part in the chase
Why should other teams help Sagan and Cancellara? They have to make the jump to Boonen group soon or the race is lost for them.
Well... If they don't have people out infront and aspire to win, surely the smart move would be to help, regardless of dragging Cancellara and Sagan along whilst doing so..

It feels like Martin has been riding for the last 100km.
He's such a beast, does he just not give a **** about races like this or why doesn't he ever go for the win himself?
He never tried before last years tour. Today he's doing what he has to do. If he keeps the gap long enough Eitxx is going to win this. Cancellara and Sagan are bringing Terpstra and Stybar back as well, if they come back at all.
 
Pretty poor stuff from Sky. Four riders in the lead group - should be using at least two of them at the front now, because they won't be much use if Canc, Sagan, Stybar, Terpstra, Kristoff etc... all get back on. This break is their chance for a win; they should go all in for it now.

When people refer to "Sky" doing work, isn't it just van Poppel and, if they catch the breakaway, Puccio?
I thought Moscon was there as well. I think Sky have four riders, Stannard, Rowe, Van Poppel and Moscon, not entirely sure though

They only have Moscon to use. Puccio is ahead in the break.

EDIT - Van Poppel was dropped on the last section but might have made it back.

There are definitely four there - and they've sent one to the front. Good decision.

This is the crucial phase in the race. If the front peloton can maintain 45+ seconds while Canc and Sagan use up all their team-mates it should be decisive.
