Av speed now just under 37kph.
Grivko on the attack, yet again and taking the GPM points.
Don't know about the rest of you, but I'm beginning to wonder about teams with lettered names.
ISD, this year's CSF?
Rabobank actually has to do some work to keep the break in check today, since Serpa is "only" 9.52 behind Menchov. An italian alliance trying to destroy Menchov's team before the big stages next week perhaps? Could we see Cunego in a break tomorrow? Or perhaps Scarponi?
Looks like this stage will be similar to the 2003 stage. The break just won't get 15 minutes since Serpa is only just over 9 minutes behind and giving them more than 4-5 minutes brings him well within the top 10. So they'll keep the break at half distance like now and then we'll see if anyone tries to bridge the gap to try something...
