Sky have only Wiggo and Uran left at the top of the GC. That must be a disappointment after just 3 days of racing.
Yep. They didn't look prepared today.

Cobo and Capecchi both finished way back so I guess Benat is Movistar's GC rider for sure then.
Not that there was any doubt even before this stage :D

nvm the seconds.
Hesjedal did make a statement today. That's what I wanted Nibali to do.
Same here. I think he had excellent legs, always close to the front and looking fresh.

But still, would you bet against Wiggins, Uran and Henao all in the top 10 in the final GC? ;)

Henao isnt that far behind. He can still get on the podium.

It seems like we can't expect much from these folks:

37. Duarte +1:52
40. Jeannesson +1:52
48. Stetina +1:52
56. Machado +1:52
65. Atapuma +1:52
66. Di Luca +1:52
Let some of these guys drop another 4-6 minutes quickly and get into some serious power breaks in 2nd week of the giro.

It will be good for the race.

Dont think they will mind even at this stage. Things won't start to be sorted out until after the 1st long TT.

It was a great stage that I really enjoyed. Nice to see Santambrogio right up there too, I have a few pound each-way at 66/1.

Why ? Wiggins is the nominated leader. I don't think they are concerned about putting others on the podium.
Having Uran and Henao right up there leaves them with cards to play. That's only good for Wiggins.

Yea,but if Uran and Henao are in GC contention they can send them up the road and make other teams chase ;):)

And I thought the first post was trolling. I have no idea what card you think they could or would play, and how remotely credible said card would be given the stated aim, and near zero interest the sponsor has in a Columbian winning.


Even so, the premise for your argument is wrong too - they have 3 men in the top 10.

Anglosaxons think they can teach us #cycling but that's not the way a team should ride. Chasing Taborre a nosense"
he said that after Silvio Martinello, during the post stage tv show, said that by the end of the stage Sky had lost his strenght, and Wiggo was alone for a while (before Uran and Henao joined the front group)

he said Sky put too much energy in the chasing at the begining of the stage

Yes Saturday will be the one stage where he has damage limitiation. I'm hoping he can claw some time back in the big mountains. No reason why he can't from what i've seen of his form this season.
Ok, but go look at Tirreno for quite how horrifically bad it could be (he was even riding for GC then). He'll probably lose more to Nibali than Nibs loses to Wiggins.

Yes, I thought Henao was a bit further back. But your Sky obsession really hurts your common sense. It's good for Wiggo to have teammates way up on GC. If Henao attacks on a penultimate climb somewhere in the last week, Astana have to use all domestiques chasing. And at some point Nibali himself will have to chase.
