I'd think Bilbao's chances to win from the front group are better than Wright's from this big one. But they don't seem to agreeGroups 2 and 3 have merged, now the front group has the numeric deficit. Bahrain pulling there, have given up on Bilbao winning the GC then.
before the race Gloag mentioned that he did some specific descending training, but is still lacking a bit in that regard. So doesn't sound unreasonable that he lost further time downhill.Yes, although he was initially reported to be in the first rather than the second chase group so may have lost further time on the descent. Or the info was wrong in the first place.
