Could be important:

Wind will be light on the almost journey. It will blow Northeasterly and Easterly wind on the all course being from left side and favourable for the cyclists from the departure to the arrival.

    Great stage yesterday but I'm struggling to love a Grand Tour that can have Chris Horner sat so high on GC. Hopefully that will be rectified at some point.

    Next Andalucian´s mountains stages will solve that

    I'm struggling with the Vuelta this year, In fact I'm struggling with cycling this year. Everything pre and since the Giro has been a right snooze. I'm losing the love here guys. :(
  • I'm enjoying the Vuelta so far =(

    My biggest gripe the past few days has been bikeradar deciding to keep logging me out of the bloody forums!

    So far it looks like today's stage will actually be one for the sprinters =p

    Today's breakaway of Knees, Pinotti and Aramendia about 2 mins up the road with 38km to run.

    Looks like today the peloton have it all under control.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    18km left. Break pretty much back. Katusha's pisspot express on the front.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    11km to go. Dan Martin on the deck and bike change.
  • MrTapirMrTapir Posts: 1,206
    Sounds like Pinotti went on his own, but Cancellara brought him back. He's well up for showing the other TTers he's still got it eh.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    7.4km to go. Gilbert and Stybar off the front with a decent gap.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    Hmm. 4km left. 6 seconds.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    Bit tight and twisty. Better for the two out front but now on open roads again. Under 2km.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    1km and 12 secs.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    Stybar takes it as the bunch just fails to get there. Looked very close with Gilbert.

    Some bloody good finals we get in the absence of pure sprinters and their teams.
  • MrTapirMrTapir Posts: 1,206
    nice commentary Smithy. I'll definintely be checking the higlights out. "today is one for the sprinters..." ho hum.
  • wow, razor thin winning margin for Stybar

    Imagine how Theo Bos must feel now..

    Missed the race. Hopefully the highlights will do it justice.
  • smithy21smithy21 Posts: 2,200
    Dan Martin loses time. Came in at 1 min 33.

    Yep, it looked to me at most a tyre width.

    (Stybar immediately celebrated and the ex-profi commentator I was following said the riders always know. I hope that Trott woman was following the same commentary)

  • Ah not good for Martin. He was going well and had a chance to place well overall.

    Am annoyed Gilbert didnt get that...closest he has come to a win this season and a season without a win as WC would be sad.
