Zandio not in splendid form, it appears. Not surprisingly, though, considering the general shape of the Sky-team at the moment. GT, Nieve, Froome, and Kiri the only ones to show some form so far (of the riders present in CdD, obviously).

You could probably add Pate to that list, but your overall point stands.

Lol not only is the Eurosport commentary the worst in the history of TV, they also decided Saturday's stage won't be broadcasted due to the 24 hours of Le Mans. I mean, I know there's other sports apart from cycling but this is the most boring event in the most boring 'sport' on earth (apart from rally, which is awesome obviously). Seriously, who cares about a bunch of thicko's doing rounds for 24 hrs in something which supposedly is a car?

Just had to share my frustration :D
Finally someone agrees with me that motorsports are no "sports". :D
 
So Nizzolo is on the way to hospital for wrist x-rays and Howard and Hushovd are behind the peloton for whatever reason (I think Howard was in the crash, too). My forecast top ten is looking even more tenuous than the first two days.

Howard was in the crash, yes. Hushovd is just really bad right now and was dropped at the foot of the climb.

German Eurosport doesn't seem to be showing cycling at all anymore, other than Paris-Roubaix and Tour, so I have to watch everything on streams anyway.

I agree that Jens will have a hard time winning anything because of that, Jspear. Normally, the peloton does not even allow him to get away and when they do, everybody in the break are looking at him and marking him.

Does not matter anyway ... they will be caught.
