That race in Turkey is a freaking mess, no words. Wilson Peña was the sole leader and was about to pass the only climb (1st cat) of the day for the KOM points and possible stage victory, but punctured 1k from the top. He had to wait so long for a new wheel that by the time he got it, he was the last man in the race, in front of the broom-wagon and couldn't even make the finish.

I didn't know he was leading the race. In that case, I have to wonder, where was his team car?
I don't think it's fair to judge the race based on 1 incident.

I thought 'neo-pro' referred to a rider's first pro contract, as opposed to their first year as a pro, and since a neo-pro contract must always be at least two years.

Respect for those riders racing Le Samyn today. Riding with temperatures below freezing is terrible. There's also a decent wind which makes it feel even worse.

QS with 6 in the break of 16, including Gilbert, Terpstra, and Stybar. No other big names present.
I say this as a huge QS fan but this will only make their failure that much worse.
 
Wow, Gilbert was back in the front group a bit too quick to my taste. I know he wasn't at any fault himself, but still there must have been quite some pedal to the metal in the team car(s).
