to the many asking what is Nibali doing.

this is a Liquigas attack . Sagan Kreuziger and Nibali are very good friends from the Liquigas period.
But Astana is killing it all because they want to protect a no name placing Vs having a chance to win the stage + make sky and others work so they might put it all on the line for glory.

Pathetic.

Why is Nibali assisting Roman? He is going to pass Aru in GC
Because Nibali doesn't like Aru
They've worked for each other on the 2 occasions (2013 Giro & this Tour) they had to. Other than that they got along with each other pretty fine by building a different race calendar and domestique squad in consulting with each other. Very diplomatic relation actually for quite a rivalry.

6minutes is enough for Nibali to arrive ahead of the peloton, by pulling the peloton, nibali can sits on the wheels of the attackers with a "logic Justification"... without having them asking why you not pulling at the front. So nibali can now rest, and try win the stage later. Only kreuziger or pantano can match him

I'm away for a few minutes so expect crazy things to happen on the flat :D
It just started raining a little harder Gigs. Stay away. Stay away.

This is reminding me of stage 4 of last years Giro with this Roman excitement. Hopefully this time it amounts to a little more in the end.

Though - again because of Astana! - it probably won't.

Still, what a beast Sagan is.

Sou Português but Rui Costa is starting to piss me off. This isn't about being smart, it's about the fact that he doesn't work at all on breaks.
Yeah, that's usually true. However, it's hyperbole that he never works and having pulled quite often at the front of the break yesterday and having ridden a few dozens of km's alone I'd cut him some slack today. He said he as exhausted yesterday and would need to expend very little if he wanted to contend.

astana just trying to keep it in bay for an attack of aru to still matter, because nibali with too much headtime makes an aru attack useless as well

I've seen that Bora ad so many times I'm nearly tempted to go find one and see it in person.

Watching Lemond bringing a lot of value to Eurosport makes me hopeful that one day we can also see Lance giving something back to the sport. It would be so, so good.

Astana is really drilling it. Aru on the radio. They are destroying the peloton.
