    Inner Ring preview in the link above. Seems the profile is misleading, and should all come down to a bunch sprint. Could this be Tyler's second win of the year?

    They really spent a good amount of time in Galicia. An amazingly beautiful part of Spain, not just the more weell known rocky coast, but also today's interior with some spectacular canyons

    Another one, like yesterday, that's difficult to judge. If a group is away and the bunch go up those hills at steady pace, it should be possible for the likes of farrar and Markus to hang on. Farrar did do well on the uphill sprint in Brussels in the Eneco. But it's still early in the Vuelta, and it could be lively on those climbs

    Is that breakaway rider really called 'Winner Anacona Gomez'?

    Yep, more usually know as Winner Anacona. One of the Colombians just a step below Quintana, Uran, Henao and Bertancur.

  • Well the break cleared a 10 min gap up the first climb of the day.

    It would be nice to see a break actually stay away all day, but I reckon the hungry teams in the peloton (especially those with decent sprinters) won't care to let that happen given the flatter finish today.
  • FJSFJS Posts: 4,820
    Will be interesting to see who starts chasing; OPQS and Greenedge or Garmin and Vacansoleil...
  • Garmin apparently just took it up and the gap dropped for the first time.

    Potentially could reach the same step...........................if he could stop falling off! :wink:
    Last year he finished 19th, 23 minutes and change down on Contador.

    "Spanish flat" stage. Hoping to be home in time to catch the finish.

    (Once again, would anyone know where I could catch good recap videos? Cheers.)
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    63km to go. 6 mins 30 gap.
  • CrampeurCrampeur Posts: 1,065
    Who's "Ulrika Greenedge" ? :wink:
  • MrTapirMrTapir Posts: 1,206
    Sean kept mentioning her during Le Tour too, maybe its Carlton's new girlfriend.

    I think the accepted place is the cyclingtips website is it not? There's a pinned topic in the pro race forum at the top called 'where to watch' i think, it may say in there.

    Edit: its actually www.Cyclingtorrents.nl

    Garmin are grafting arent they. They must really think Tyler is nailed on for a good 4th place!
  • MrTapirMrTapir Posts: 1,206
    break down to 2:22 according to the cyclingnews tour tracker. Garmin, OPQS and Team Ulrika doing all the work.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200

    Courteille suicide attack
  • CrampeurCrampeur Posts: 1,065
    ...but looking very strong with 51s, as Van de Walle comes back
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    Pretty much all back together with OPQS and OGE on the front.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    Euskies have a dart but Argos all over the front.
  • MrTapirMrTapir Posts: 1,206
