GP Miguel Indurain

Pretty strange. But it didn't look like the crash took any riders out. My guess is that either Caisse's rhythm was too broken, or they just didn't have it. Either way let's just give credit to Fuente, as he quite possibly would have won regardless. Hope the cameraman is okay, must be scary going down like that.
LL Sanchez does all that work, neutralises every attack on the penultimate climb, but Valverde just didn't have the legs.
IMO: He also must be mentally fragile at the moment.
See what he does at the Klassica Primavera on Roubaix Sunday.

Cobo to win another Fuji stage, at Pais Vasco? Can't see him featuring in the GC. Not with a 24kmITT to wrap up the race.
