quintana had a flat tire :( unfortunate.
Yes, it's unfortunate. Like getting caught behind a gap in a descent ;)

Quintana didn't look very strong coming back though. He wasn't very far behind at some point. Westra did a better job.

That's hilarious. :D

Quintana simply crash-flatted during a hungerknock. No way he just made some poor tactical decision!

On many occasions crashing is the result of poor technique... surely wouldn't have been the case here though.
Impossible. Quintana has the best technique in the peloton. Well, that's not completely true, Henao is even better, but still, second best.

westra was behind 50 metres in a downhil. quintana was always far behind and without teammates(only immediately after his crash one helped) as well, he pulled the group to the finish

That's true.

I think eurosport is mixing gesink with ulissi. There was clearly a lampre jersey coming in fifth or sixth.

No, Quintana wasn't very far behind on the climb. But he couldn't turn a bigger gear. Seemed a bit like Gesink ;)

Front group should have kept Westra at bay in the last part today. Poor communication?

Keukeleire 8. today. I am pleasantly surprised. :)

I thought he is more sprinter, but maybe he is coming to be classic rider?

Any race which after 6 days has only managed to seperate the top 20 riders by 18 seconds, is a failure.
