Millar is beating Sanchez half way though...that is interesting.

They both look like posting sub 37's and gaining at least half a minute on Vino et al

oops, just hooked onto the coverage and saw Millar's time after I posted. I had assumed he hadn't finished yet, which was silly of me.

Here goes Gesink...be intersting to see if he can limit his losses on this course?
Not particularly good at bike handling. Reasonably good TTer, though.

37.28 Sanchez in 3rd - he must be pleased with that - wonder what Basso and Valverde can do in response to that ...
 
179mm - There goes one of your picks down the drain. Guess Mr Vino didn't have his transfusio's for breakfast today;)

isso - Nice safe pick there with gerdemaan. Think he is a bit overrated TBH.

@ El Imbatido - Are you feeling confident? :)
Yes, very confident that there will be little to no movement on the leader board as most people have alot of the same. The only way to get extra points will be if they are in the right spots.

Timmy really has unwavering confidence in Gesink and Rabo:) It is good to support one particular team but he really should be using his head.

Unlike what the TVE commentators are saying, this is a very bad performance by Gesink's standards. The wet roads have a lot to do with it, no doubt. He has stone hands for bike handling.

This TT is half the distance it would need to be for Grabsch to win :)
