We just saw the team decide that the yellow has priority over Wout in the breakaway. He's called back to protect and guide young V on this tough day.

It looked like Wout is feeling great and wanted to drive the breakaway to a potential victory and recover with the rest day tomorrow. But he still has a great chance to win the stage.

He'll be criticized from those with the Postal/Sky philosophy that every single decision is made to support a Tour win, but really, would the critics prefer him on their team, or on another team? I think he's been an essential asset to a potential V win.

Liggett said the road is melting. That's really dangerous on a fast downhill. Just ask Joseba Beloki.

On top of that Wout is likely to have more chance to win the stage from a (reduced) bunch sprint than from that three man breakaway that were very likely to be caught.
Ha, Mikkel Bjerg is not impressed by Roglic' withdrawal:

"I heard he is out because of a crash 10 days ago. Sounds strange. It seems like they think the yellow jersey has been won already. Good for them. Yesterday, he rode on the front on a category 3 climb and reduced the peloton to 20 guys. Then you're not doing that badly."
Bjerg's naive.
Hasn't seen through the spooks yet.
Bennett at UAE, Roglič in JV.
