Good TT by Uran today. Happy for him.
Come on,1 sec faster than Pinot/Sagan is not that great.Still better than the other big guys,so i suppose is a good a start.I hope it will be a great Tour for him.
Uran also did far better than Contador who also rode the Giro. Pinot's ride was amazing although at 5'11" he has a build for such a course providing he is in form as he obviously is. No surprise to see Sagan do well he is often fast in shorter TTs.

what are you talking about? uran isn't some monster itt rider, especially not in the flat. even if he was slightly in advantage of having less wind than other favorites he still did a good itt considering his form I guess
 
As i said, he could be the surprise of this Tour, he has estrated very well, and today the team protect him more than one could think, becouse it was for the team the stage and the yellow and Rigo just worked a little.

It was good yesterday that Tony Martin didnt get the yellow... and good as well for him he didnt take him and thet Kiatkowski has losed time and he is clearly the stronger of the team.

He could wear yellow before the mountains.

Cancellara has not ridden Fleche before but you would expect him to lose time to Sagan and Uran on the Mur. Both should both close in on yellow but are a little too far back at the moment I think. Uran is well placed in the overall obviously and seemed to finish the Giro with good legs.

today he is quietly there. Fly under the radar. Tomorrow will be a telling. But I'm quietly rooting for him after his disaster Giro.

uran could be in yellow after today if raced hard. between him and dumoulin I think
Today??

This year in fleche Valone the 10th rider losed 4 seconds...Today is almost a bunch sprint.
Mur de bretagne is harder.
Uran can be with the best today and put 10 seconds to Cancellara, but no more.
Maybe after Mur de Bretagne is possible if the team help him tomorrow on the cobbles, but the real chance is the TTT.
Today will be good if he can put time to other contenders, especially Contador orr Froome, but difficult.
Kiatkowski should help Urán today.

Just becouse maximun slope, but Mur is more desnivel and has 1 Km at similar slope. But today the stage is harder with more climbs...

Uran disapoint me a little today, but he was close to Contador, and nobody worked for him... and lot opf people worked for contador, so it is ok.

But to be stronger than Contador is not very important, he is not reference this Tour, there are several stronger people here.
 
Today big differences becouse they rode like a clasic, but with stronger domestiques working: Kreuziger, Majka, Porte... and Fleche is rode like an stage. But people who losed more than 20 seconds is becouse is weak.

Thanks. I couldnt see him on the crash, but that is always a problem even if he wanst one of the injuried riders, if you crash you have always problems, and tomorrow is the coblestone stage. i hope the team worked to put at the same time Rigo, Cavendish and Tony on the front..and Rigo doesnt work. Just at the final section end Stybar could go for the stage or work just for Cav...

Yeah doesn't sound good, especially for tomorrow's stage
Maybe is the kind of injury you cant put back after a rest day, but before that there are important stages, an just tomorrow cobless, and he is an coplete rider, but he is not heavy.

One picture of Rigo on the Cobbles in Colombia:
