This. Thanks.bambino said:No bonus seconds for GC guys if break stays away. That would be the benefit for Nibs.Bolder said:Just curious -- why do you think that? My read is that a breakaway up the road would be good or neutral for Froome/Chavez.Laplaz said:For Nibali it would be good if the break could stay clear, for Froome and Chaves of course not.
Not sure how it would affect their tactics, as they are racing amongst themselves either way. The only thing I can see is that teams with a rider in the break don't have to work as hard, but I can't imagine Sky would let Bahrain or Orica get in the break.
