I think a guy like Javier Moreno will have a good chance for the win.

Or LL Sanchez of course.

edet is 1 pt behind roche and 4 pts behind horner in the KOM competition.

He must come atleast in the top 3 in the cat 1 climb. if horner comes 5th or roche comes 4th, then he needs to be in the top-2.

expecting a change of jersey today, unless roche and horner have other ideas.

The first intermediate sprint is before the next climb. a break will be lucky to cross it in one piece, esp after people have seen basso and roche cutting time.

my call for the day: vino option

There are six leaders on the road now;

Eddy Hagen, Jan Barta, Bauke Mollema, Yannick Eijssen, Dennis Vanendert and Mitchell Docker

Flecha and Morkov try to bridge the gap

Which is why it hasn't been established yet...
they sould have let teams that dont have representation to add riders and leave it like that, right?


or was it the presence of the likes of EBH sanchez, that ruined the break?

It's the fact that a lot of riders want to be in the break. So if Saxo wants a rider in the break, but doesn't have one, they will try to pull the break back, and so forth.

The Ds's should have an early morning meeting, picking one guy to go in the break that is not a threat on GC, so that each team has a representative.


Perhaps also select the winner so that each team can have a stage win. Eh, I need to think less or was it wright less? I'm confused again.:eek:
