Gesink pulling the entire peloton, really making this stage a great test for him

Do need to say, Gesink is looking really good, is he peaking too early?
You may well be right, I expect him to go well in the first week of the Tour (providing he doesn't crash on the cobbles) but he could run out of steam by the third.

Monfort and the two Caisse riders are clearly strongest when the road goes uphill but they are not able to maintain their advantage on the flat or the descents.

Gesink has got one team-mate left.

I think Mad Amets Txurruka is getting pulled back in by the peloton.

[edit]Yup, there he goes.

Saxo on the attack again but Gesink marking everything.

One after another, it's raining attacks and most are reacted to by Gesink himself, I am really getting worried for his tour, he just looks too good, or has he become that much better this year?

He may have better form than most of the other Tour hopefuls in the race, so it's easier to pull back/cover their attacks.

If you use popout player you don't have to even look at the chat.

Da Costa has this in the bag, and Caisse will almost certainly get the one-two.
 
poor monfort still dragging rojas with him, as if he can actually catch rui costa and then not lose to rojas. shouldn't he just wait for the rest of the group for some help?

No way that is Thor sprinting from the pack.

[edit] It is as well! What a ride from the thunder god. I take it all back, he should be in with a great chance of defending his green jersey if this is the form he is in.

Bauke, you effing hero.
It matters not. According to the UK fanboy commentators, there are only 2 riders left in the race and Armstrong will produce a "vintage" time trial, tomorrow.:mad:

Come on Lance. I want to see you come in the top five of the chasing peloton so we can hear about how great your form is!
That's all I've heard for the past hour.........

Some of it was very funny but distracting... trying too avoid is probably better.
