Break to succeed.
Seems likely. Certainly the GC men will want to rest up for the TT tomorrow.

If the break does stay away none of them will want to take Ciolek to the line so there will certainly be attacks over all those little climbs at the end.

The break hasn't been able to get a big gap, if anyone in the peloton can be bothered it shouldn't be too hard to reel them in over the closing kilometres.

Not sure but it sounds better than Danish, Flemish or Ligget talking rubbish.
Well, it sounds better than Flemish from Exgi, or whatever the channel is called, certainly not better than Sporza

Exqi, urgh. I'm Flemish and can get Exqi on TV but am tempted to find another language stream once the footy ends. They're awful beyond belief.

Sporza is OK, great coverage. I have the feeling the commentators know what they are talking about even though i dont understand most of the commentary .

The peloton seems to have taken their collective foot off the gas, the break's advantage is going back out again. Maybe they'll manage to stay away after all?

Ciolek, Casar and Rast have been dropped, Vanotti dangling off the back. Surely the two Caisse riders will take turns attacking now, if they have the legs.

I would bet one of the two Caisse guys will win, but froma breakaway 2-3km out.

The Sky guy might break off too.

Fuglsang attacks out of the peloton for some reason?

Monfort is in a tough situation now, he definitely won't want to come to the finish with Rojas.
