Froome could try something, he's only 1" back. It is too flat for Alberto, Purito + Mollema could go for it as well.

Alberto might drop a few places in the gc after this stage :(
I don't know if cf would really want the overall lead right now. I tend to think not. Besides, if you crash as leader, still no one waits for you, so what's the advantage ? :D

Okay true. Purito could try and extend his lead though and Mollema could move up to third, two times 4 secs up for grabs or even more?

Down to 4 minutes - I reckon he's playing with the bunch slowing down to make them think he's tired then he's just going to GO! and take off and they won't have a hope of pulling him back...

Would Swift have had a chance in that stage if he had a better lead out or was he just done for speed?
He was isolated for quite a way out,was in the wind much longer than the two infront of him for sure.

If this keeps going like this we might have one of the dullest stages on record.

Time to hope for a lot of people going for it in the sprint.

Or like in the Worlds, all lapped riders are immediately kicked out of the race.
Did the Geelong WC breakaway not only fail to catch the back of the peloton by a very short margin? What would have happened then? Whole peloton told to stop, and have 5-man race? Game of virtual tag, whereby each man in the peloton that they passed was told to drop out (like a huge elimination race)? Or escapees allowed to ride within bunch, and then try to work out which of them crossed the line first while everyone else was hearing the virtual bell (which, according to Roche's book, was the specific pre-race plan of the Irish team)?

So far, this is no different from the other stages. This one is just without an uphill finish in sight.
