QS attacked in the descent of the Soller climb. Wellens crashed out of that and Van Wilder & Mcnulty also DNFed after a crash before. Those are just the names we know, there have been a couple more crashes.

QS is in a really good position with 4 guys in a group of 9 riders.

Eenkhoorn & Healy still in front from the early breakaway.
