So I'll guess ill post Taaramäe's Thoughts after that race like i did yesterday.

He basically said that he was really happy that he didn't let LL Sanches get any time on him. He was asked about his Sprint at the end, he responds that it isn't that good, today was all about sitting behind LL Sanches. He doesn't believe there will be much changes to the top of GC in the last 2 stages. He says that he is gonna mirror LL Sanches all day tomorrow basically. And he hopes he is gonna get the 3rd spot on the podium at the end of the Volta a Catalunya.

LL Sanchez had been in the podium 3x so far.i think he'll definitely gonna make it 4.Two seconds difference is very manageable.

Good Ride by Rodriguez to take the GC and Tondo to take second.
I'm also really glad to see Taaramäe in 3rd, that's really great and he actually
held of no other than LL Sanchez :)
Other good results i would say Roche 5th and Kreder 7th are also very respectable :)

Anyways if i catch the Taaramäe interview after the last stage I'll post it...

Jeez, quite in here today or what, everyone must have been following the big anti-climax. Another Cofidis victory, another French victory. Good stuff.

Tumbleweed blows by...............

Don't know why, but I don't care that much for Catalunya right now.
Criterium International is always fun because of the 3 stage set-up. Classics go above everything else.

Good result by Kreder tho!
