Katusha down to 6.
Caisse get home with 7...almost 8.
Menchov is already slipping out of contention.
Is there more trouble ahead?


rabo is losing their small chance of a podium today. if clement can't keep up something is wrong with him. and he's supposed to do more work than most of them.
too bad for gesink, but how awesome to see the ttt is back!

If a team were to split and only 4 guys came accross the line, would those 4 guys get the time of the 5th rider as well?

I know the team would get the time of the 5th rider, but for GC purposes.
The first five riders get the time of the fifth rider. If they arrive all together, no gaps, every rider gets the time of the fifth rider.

I AGREE, AK-ZAAF.

I think the TTT is the most exciting stage to watch (there are other, more exciting times, in every stage, but, considering the entire stage as a whole, it is fun to watch the riders working together.)
