Nice position for Oss, not needing to work in the frontgroup as team member of race leader Hushovd.
Yes, a great position for Oss... however he's 17 seconds down on GC on most other members of the front group.

Why did he attack then?
For the same reason any team-mate of a GC contender ever gets into the breakaway - to cover the group and hope for a stage win if they drag him to the line.

What are the bonifications? The boy can sprint a bit, after all.

No bonifications.

BTW I think Pentacycle meant: why did he attack the front group? Because that's what he did a little while ago.

With 70 kms to go it's a bit hopeless to think you'll be dragged to the line by Boom only. Oss is riding purely for himself here, he might not get a chance like this for a while. He was clearly cooperating with Boom, Oss is obviously trying to win this himself.

Ah, my bad. Stream isn't working for me, thought he was still with the main break.

wait so who looks like they're going to win the GC? where are all the decent climbers who are quite high on the GC?
And I think Oss is faster than Fredrigo.
