Today was the first real win for Tinkoff with Basso bossing it in the Team Car!

Nice win for Zoidl - his first one since joining the ProTour three years ago. It's always kind of sad to see formerly exciting Continental-Tour riders become mediocre ProTour riders, but this is a nice win and if he can win the whole Tour then even better.

Somewhat unfortunate for Trek that Boy Van Poppel didn't make the time cut, I assume he would have been a good rouleur to have for the 40k TTT. But even so you would imagine that if Trek get their act together they should be able to get the race lead for Zoidl.

Nice three wins for Trek... now back to being invisible in Romandie and in the Giro except those 5 mandatory 2nd/3rd places for Nizzolo.
You forget that a Trek rider will win the prologue ;)
