stage 3:

Those will contend the GC, it seems. EPM's back after a terrible Vuelta Colombia, but the Iranians - especially young talent Alizadeh - fight back.

Also the experienced Askari in there without forgetting also Mizurov althought Tabriz and EPM might play out with their numbers.

A victory for Andalucia yesterday althought "helped" by a big crash in the last 500meters.

Luka Mezgec takes his 3rd stage victory :eek::eek:

Who wants to make a guess, whether he's gonna take more stages in Qinghai than Cav/Sagan at the TDF?

He won again on stage 10. in some interviews he was really struggling with the high altitude early on, now they have dropped down a bit he is finding his legs again. Got to remember at some points on this course there is something crazy like 40% less oxygen in the air

2do overall so far, that's all there is to it
yeah looks like Alvarez grabbed a sneaky 3 seconds on the intermediate sprint to move from 4th to second.

On stage 10 Wurf grabbed a couple back to move to 3rd

TPT and Alizadeh look too strong for now. expect CSS to have a go (especially as if you look in cycling IQ article you will see Wurf is under a lot of pressure to get a result)

great to see TPT back up and racing after their issues earlier in the year

Just heard that a Slovenian won stage 11 so assuming it was another win for Mezgec.

also heard there was a bad crash on the stage involving rider and motorbike with both going to hospital. these Asian races really need to sort out their marshalls. they have the experience in Malaysia and Japan but need to get that out to other races

oh not sure if has been posted here but video highlights for all the stages can be found here

http://www.qqride.com/video/index.php/video/show

you can try a bit of google translate or just guess from the pictures. stages are in reverse order so most recent first. They are really nice videos, well shot and edited, some nice scenery and you can include good music in your highlights when you do not need to worry about copyright infringement
