It was almost like being there yourself - apart from the getting soaked bit - just "standing" by the finish line, waiting, not really knowing a whole feck about what was going on.
But then even the live-feed at the finish line died…
Nakane wins stage 6 in a 2 men sprint after a late attack. Battistella finished 3rd, Fedorov gained 5 seconds on Celano.
Nakane is a quality rider, a fast guy who climbs really well, he's now 6th on the gc and has finished top 10 in both the Japan cup and the Tour of Japan before, he's by far the best Japanese rider that Nippo have on their team.
