    Intermediate sprint point truly is taking the proverbial today. Who sponsors that in this race, and what have they done to annoy the organisers?

    It's vital for the GC contenders to chip away at each other and bank seconds before stage 20 with it's summit finish atop the Alto de l'Angliru, when hearts will be broken and women will thrust babies towards the winner to be kissed. Until then, it's all window dressing.

    I forgot PTP today. Noooooooooooooooooooooo.
  • Sky not letting the break go...
    They should.
    Let Lulu have red for a few days. :D:)

    Taking the definition of intermediate to a very unusual place! Hey, at least it means the sprint will be part of the TV coverage in the highlights.

    Big break including my man Toms 3 mins ahead of the peloton...
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 11,838
    Contador is lively.
  • kingstongrahamkingstongraham Posts: 13,803
    What did I miss? Looks like it's gone to pieces again

    Contador.
  • hypsterhypster Posts: 1,183
    Contador's giving it the big 'un. Froome/Sky must be loving this.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 11,838
    Someone has crashed.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 11,838
    Jesper Hansen and Domont from breakaway are the mystery crashers.
  • dish_dashdish_dash Posts: 4,981
    Hansen (Astana) and DuMont (Ag2R) crashed
  • dish_dashdish_dash Posts: 4,981
    Geez, Contador is having fun...
  • dish_dashdish_dash Posts: 4,981
    TJ looks to have crashed...
  • imatfaalimatfaal Posts: 2,716
    Looks like TJ VG and Axel Dumont and an Astana rider
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 11,838
    I do like the way Contador rides and the way Froome rides the Vuelta. 34km to go and a three man group.
  • dish_dashdish_dash Posts: 4,981
    And while Froome may deliver the results, he does look like total sh*te on the bike...

    That bothers me about as much as the colour of socks debate.

    :D

    But it's truly noticeable when you have Contador and Froome going all guns next to each other...
  • dish_dashdish_dash Posts: 4,981
    Nibs and Aru back with Contador and Froome... and a few others...
  • dabberdabber Posts: 1,646
    Just waiting for another Nibali mugging (I do hope not).

    Contador has set it up to take advantage of his well known sprint.

    Who isn't in the contenders group?

    Well... TJ crashed and De La Cruz is trying to get back on... all the other major contenders in there as far as we know...
  • Dorset_BoyDorset_Boy Posts: 3,365
    Bardet & TJvG
  • Bo DukeBo Duke Posts: 1,058
    They're slowing to allow TVG back on... the organisers need a race...... dear oh dear, Berti and Froome could have bagged this stage if they'd kept going. The organisers would have skinned them alive...
