Well, Astana is not that strange. Both Lopez and Fuglsang have a **** sprint.

But Katusha? WTF?? :confused: Just let Spilak ride tempo at the front and Moreno wins.
I think Katusha's problem was that both Moreno and Spilak are quite fast in such a group, thus none of them was interested in sacrificing their own chance for their team mate. Really, really bad, though.
Spilak fast? :rolleyes:
There should be no doubt about the hierarchy between those 2. Moreno would win a sprint like that 80% of the times and Spilak should definitely have chased down the move

Yeah, I think they both wanted to win and hadn't communicated properly. What was the DS doing?

Well i never saw Spilak doing something in a flat sprint which indicates he's faster then Moreno.
Me neither, but he is quite fast, no? He beat Moreno Moser in Eichborn-Frankfurt in 2013 and I recall him beating Costa in a sprint for second in Paris-Nice this year I think.

Btw I'm not justifying his riding, just giving my thought on why Katusha didn't chase.

Well aparently he did win some sprints. It should have been really impressive then, because i can't recall it ;)

Winner Anacona also really good. 13th today, and with that TT a good GC is still possible.

I never said that Spilak is faster than Moreno and should not have sacrificed himself, of course he should. But he is one the faster guys in such a sprint.

Just a little too tough for Sagan, but he was still far ahead of anyone else with a finish.
Yes, his shape looks good. GVA, Gilbert, Albasini and so on was further back. He should grab a few stages if his team doesn't let him down.

Majak really bad Btw.

I agree. I guess, Spilak just have a too high understanding of himself, or the Katusha DS is just a .....

A good start for Pinot and Spilak. They should be the strongest on the MTF. Birdsong, G and the young Tommy D looked very strong. They'll be looking to limit their losses on the queen stage and go for it in the TT. G seems to have booked leadership for this race, as Henao dropped off. Majka maybe surprisingly weaker than at Romandie, but he's got the big goal of his season still a long way off.

WTF happened to Majka. Ono moment he was following Fuglsang and Thomas, then Sagan finishes 45 seconds ahead of him. 1km before the top of the climb he was still ahead of him...
Yes ...this rider has not shown anything this year

with 3 weeks to go to the Tour you would think he would be in better form no matter what excuses he says....I though he was going to be Contador's top Dom
Hope Kruez is in better form
