Great win by Lobato. Tommorow's stage is harder.



Torrens Hill is short but steep. Simon Geschke-terrain.

And the breakaway today got him and his team some TV exposure, but ended up costing him 13:43 on GC - seems he went out the back in a big way after being caught.

Kittel finished in that group too, so end of his GC hopes.

Kittel had GC hopes? That's funny :)

In fairness, he did mention the fact that he was 3rd at the Giro a couple times.
