This has been a great race so far with interesting parcour. It encourages attacking racing which is exciting.:) 50km complete - no break.

Matti Breschel (Saxo Bank), Aliaksandr Kuschynski, Manuel Quinziato both (Liquigas), Maxim Iglinskiy (Astana), Mark Renshaw (HTC), Marcus Burghardt, Mathias Frank (both BMC), Greg Van Avermaet (Omega), Luis Leon Sanchez (Caisse), Oscar Freire, Tom Leezer (both Rabobank), Daniel Sesma (Euskaltel), Jürgen Van De Walle (Quickstep), Matthew Wilson (Garmin), Juan Antonio Flecha (Sky) and Michal Golas (Vacansoleil).

Frank can win the KOM this stage if he can get some points.:)

I guess it is about points. Frank must of shut down as he would not finish 12 mins behind after being in the same break as Poels.

Frank even dropped on one of the climbs earlier in the break... *but luckily the pace dropped*

Anyway, useless discussion since ACF will never admit Poels being better than Frank this Tour de Suisse
DT, someone in the same break on the final climb who gets caught on the same part of the climb loses 12 minutes more than the other rider. Something is not right there. There was also a descnt. Surely you can see this logic.

I swear you two would find something to argue about in a thread about the sky being blue.

Yes... Yesterday they said that Gesink "wasn't much of a climber" either. They ain't the quickest bunch.
Seriously? I remember the ticker mentioned the Vacansoleil rider going with Gesink and Schleck was "possibly Westra". Which I thought was quite funny.
