I hope Gilbert races this like a one day races. Why not attack from 50km out and shatter the favorites group.
Because he's in a 3 week race? :rolleyes:

Awesome. Him and LL Sanchez (3'23") have a shot at yellow then.
favorites won't let them get too far away then. I also hope for attacks from some less favorites on the coming climbs

Its almost what Evans and Gilbert were trying to do - who attacks out of the group 150 km from the finish if your 1 second down and a GC top 5 guy ?

i'm not even a big gesink fan but this is getting very sad.especially after that knee hole in vuelta 2009.i think michael rasmussen cursed rabobank for good no offense.

peloton already all over the place.
I think Gesink must have stepped on the same crack as Christian Van De Velde or walked under too many ladders.........

Nice to see some firepower in the break and not the usual useless Cofidis riders. This could be a decent stage.

This will be a tough day in the saddle. Hard start to the stage and we have not yet reached the brutal middle section of the stage with all the climbs. Some GC-riders could lose the tour today, Gesink seems to be the first one.

He reacted to Phil's attack yesterday. Reacted a bit late though, so it was an attack.
