A 25 kms de meta. El grupo de cabeza:

Valverde, Quintana y Moreno (Movistar), Gesink y Mollema (Blanco), Van den Broeck, De Clercq y Van de Walle (Lotto), Nieve (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Brajkovic, Fuglsang, Ponzi y Seeldrayers (Astana), Armee (Topsport), Maté y Navarro (Cofidis), Spilak (Katusha), Arroyo (Caja Rural), Hivert (Sojasun) y Belda (Burgos-BH)
Igor Anton was fifth over the mountain so surely he must be in the group as well. Or maybe they have mistaken him for Nieve:rolleyes:

These numbers kinda lie. Lot of French races done already.

Pretty convincing win by Hivert, BTW.

yep, but I am curious if anybody have info on whether he has done a similar stage and getting a good result.
He won a few races in his carreer. (7) one Stage of the Tour of Romandie once and the general at Etoiles de Besseges. He looks like he is trying harder now that he is with Sojasun
