True, but it's still a shame. You gotta figure the only reason he finished out of the time limit was that everyone in his vicinity bailed and he had to ride alone for who knows how long
That's just tough luck I'm afraid. It's the same for the riders who crash or get sick. **** happens.

Martin should win this I think although a lot depends on recovery after that brutal stage. Look out for the Movistar guys Dowsett and Castroviejo. They'll be up there in the top five I think.

I doubt it. He was cooked today, and his motivation is low. Hopefully Purito will keep his 3rd place.
That's what I'm hoping for too, but I'm still expecting Purito to drop 2 to 4 spots on GC. Everyone suffered today, so Froome and Contador are still able to pass him easily.

Edit: If Froome forgot his cooling down, there's still a chance for him :D

I think this will be a very interesting ITT, it's all about recuperation.

Also Martin went all out yesterday for his leader.

And still performed pretty well until the end. Somewhat better than Malori.

50 MARTIN Tony Omega Pharma - Quick-Step 7:22


and then we have Hushovd. He used to be a top dog in Prologues.

Rohan Dennis made it through yesterday so if he's fresh could be a good length for him. Similarly for Dowsett

He, Dennis, wasn't fully recovered going into TA, though, and I think the last few days have been very hard on him. He finished 55th yesterday, though, which isn't bad considering his condition.
 
Tony Fabian and Lars should be on the podium today.
I expect a very good ITT from Kwiatkwosky (a possible 3rd place in GC)
I've a bet on Roelandts to beat Hushovd....so this means a top10 today for Jurgen.
Nibali to beat Contador too...

Hopefully Nibila will be able to maintain his advantage. Would love him to win the GC.

Nibali to ride TT better than Froome and Contador.

Froome dissapointed me at Tirreno in general. I expected far more spectacular thing from him personally on Saturday.

I'm no Sky fan but he's the only rider to win a stage and podium. How is that really disappointing?

Possible, he did say that his legs were gone at the final climb. Doesn't bode well for him doing a 3 week tour if he loses his legs in less than a week, it would be Vuelta 2012 all over again.
