Well, 3rd place was a good result anyway. Too bad Giacomo lost 2nd because of Richeze's douche move, but I guess that's just standard Quickstep. Greipel was massively unlucky aswell, but without losing the pedals, Quickstep would also have tried to ride against him, like they rode against Giacomo, and so it was always going to be Gavirias race to lose.

Sour grapes. Nizzolo had absolutely nothing on Gaviria and even Selig in that sprint, he was spent. I think that was pretty obvious!

How much is Landa's loss?

Zero, he was in the chasing group.
But everyone wrote that he wasn't in the same group as Quintana, Nibali, Zaka, Pinot, Thomas etc. :confused:

No, one person wrote it and everyone just went with it.

Official website is showing he was ST as Quintana, G, Nibali etc
Good to hear that he hasn't lost the leadership to Thomas yet. Thanks a lot!
 
Great last dozen km. Jungels was a beast. Greipel also. Shame about the mechanical and that G just missed out on all the fun. The Gorilla would have given Gaviria a run for his money.

Of course, this was the first stage I didn't pick Gaviria. :eek:

It will be interesting to see if anyone of note missed out today.

Edit: It seems that only Kangert. For me it's good that Rolland missed out, the mountain jersey beckons.

If Greipel was there, they would play the numbers card, Gaviria would hardly beat Greipel, with or without Richeze's help.
