    Great racing on the ticker. Rogers and Sagan going away with Yates, Trentin, Bak, Ryder. Harlem Globetrotters of a breakaway.

    Select group of riders away with 40 secs on the main peloton. Remainder of the prev group trying to rejoin.

    Nine riders in that group are - Pinot, Rogers, Sagan, Bak, Geschke, S. Yates, Kwiatkowski and Trentin, Hesjedal

    Could be PTP carnage as Cav is dropped by the peloton in the early autobus, now 1min50 behind.

    IAM now helping Katusha with the chase, with just one lead group of nine riders 50sec in front.

    This orica guy chatting on the bus reminds me of the manager in flight of the concords.

    Surprised Cavendish has already been dropped. There is a large downhill coming, but I imagine EQS are betting on other horses today
  • The_BoyThe_Boy Posts: 3,099
    All the other sprinters are in the Cav group so should be plenty working to bring them back.

    Can anyone tell me what Pinot is actually doing in this break? Is it just punishment for being an idiot yesterday?

    Only 11 in the Cav group including Renshaw, Golas, Kennaugh (!), Roy. It's these guys vs Katusha + Breakaway. Katusha winning to tune of 4'. Looks like curtains.

    He's not even one of my men, but I can't be the only one thinking Tony Martin would be loving a stage like this in the breakaway?

    Big question now is whether the lanterne contenders can bridge from peloton to group 3.

    According to yon tracker page, greipel isn't with the Cav group. Anyone got a confirmed gorilla sighting?

    Katusha have had enough of chasing the group, so its down to the teams of the GC leaders to control the pace. Long downhill section next (30-40kms) to the intermediate sprint and then to the foot of the cat2 Col de l'Escrinet.

    Occluded data = Gorilla's in the mist?

    I thought he was in the peloton, with Lars Sitting Bak & all. (c. INRNG)

    So can someone explain this Samsung advert to me? The tag line reads "we is greater than I" , but we see cancellara leading out ... Cancellara.

    Also, no info on degenkolb on the life tracker. Is he with peloton, or is he washing his hair with Cav and he others.

    Not in the Cav group according to the ticker.

    Rogers is going to have his work cut out later on if this group stays ahead to the finish. There will be lots of attacking in the closing kms. No-one is going to want to leave it to a bunch sprint with Sagan around.

    Just caught the very end of Matt Rendell challenging Jalabert. Did Jalabert say anything?
