    Pinot in a small break with a few seconds, two of them slip out on a very wet corner, he does bloody well to stay up

    It's on days like this that I realise there isn't enough money on the planet to get me out on a bike in weather like that.

    Pinot takes the mountain points and drops off, probably for the best, they wouldn't have given him a hell of a lot of leeway at 2'30"
