It's interesting.

The first time a small group got away that was brought back straight away. Each time a break has gone clear in the 6 road stages, the break has been allowed to go.

Chavanel and Huzarski in the lead

At km 6, Chavanel (IAM) and Huzarski (Bora) are in the lead, chased down by Sicard (Europcar) and Périchon (Bretagne-Séché) at 12 seconds, peloton at 50 seconds

So weak :eek:

Yeah

Looks like Rodriguez is going to get his 2nd stage win. :D

Froome is more explosive than Evans? I'd like to see Froome win Fleche Wallone or the World as Evans did.

Man the july fans...
That's a strange argument. Not caring about an Ardennes race doesn't mean you aren't explosive?

Do you think Froome is incapable of winning the Giro just because he has never ridden it (err since his transformation of course)

:p

If there's one thing we can always rely on it's Nibali winning through luck!

Some rather amusing off-topic conversation in this thread :)

As for the Froome being the best stage racer of all time proposal, are you mad? What has he ever done in the Tour Of California?

Wiggo is the only one to win the big two (at least officially)

Lance Armstrong said:
So who is going to chase? BMC, Movistar, Katusha and Saxo will save themselves for tomorrow.

Perhaps Lotto for Gallopin or Garmin for Dan Martin?

Lotto will chase and are chasing. They will probably get help at some stage from FDJ for Pinot (although they will probably relax and target Tuesday), Lampre for Costa and Durasek, Cofidis for Simon. Maybe Giant think that Degenkolb may be a chance.

Lotto will get help, and those teams are most likely to chip in and help compared to other teams.

Saxo's Plan B is Sagan to do THE double.

Better than Sky's Plan B :D
