The climb isn't even on the "real mountain" part. That's just the last 6.6kms

Finally, they're on the steep parts. Look how much slower they're going. And Marchante attacks!

And of course now on the black asphalt of the real climb, Hoogerland gets dropped.

If he can't win, then go Moncoutié!

will valverde wait for a small group sprint or try something in an attack?
caisse's racing makes me think the second option.

Caisse's racing makes me think the first option. I think they just want to not allow anyone to attack and stay away.

I think Valverde will definitely try a small, calculated dig, to test the others. if it goes well, he'll push it. that's my prediction.

Moncoutie could stay away. Valverde will want to take the seconds at the finish to get ahead of Evans....
