    I can't, I think it's Louis Vervaeke.

    Just seeing Ribadesella .... did the Descenso del Sella (kayak race) which finished there a couple of times. Started in Arriondas and went down river into the estuary.... a crazy race. A beautiful area, takes me back to my youth.

    Really hope Gesink can do something here. 55km to go and the break has around 4'20".
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    No sooner said than break loses 1min in the space of 5km. Might be a stage for a GC showdown at last, as Movistar set the pace at the front of the peloton.

    I think you're right :( PTP censored up today then.

    Would quite like JoDom to do something special too...

    Why isn't Lady Garden in a break ever? His goal is stage wins FFS.

    He's been nowhere near as good since the VW Emissions Crisis.

    Presumaby he has chosen the stages to target and we haven't had any of those yet.

    Gap now up to 5 mins.
  • JSCLJSCL Posts: 1,259
    I jinxed him, I jinxed him.

    Dombro crashed on the descent apparently :(

    Crashed according to Kirby.

    Ah, I see you beat me to it yourself.

    I've just seen him bouncing out of the saddle.. have also just seen the Frenchman at the back of the breakaway.

    I sense a non-event. Thanks Kirby...

    Oh well. Still have the Mirador de la Reina/ Lagos de Corovonga to go before the rest day.
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Vervaeke goes long. Rest of the break sits on Gesink's wheel..
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    No sign of Sky at all in that front group.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,527
    Froome plus two sky dropped. Calls in to base. Seems to be a Vuelta thing with him. I expect him to get back.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,527
    Having said that the main group is still quite large. Contains the red jersey.
  • Froome's long season is finally catching up with him, it seems.

    One last Movistar domestique left. He's [insert catchphrase] on the front.

    Froome around 30s behind the other GC favs now. At the front of the race, Gesink has caught up with Rolland.
  • norvernrobnorvernrob Posts: 1,448
    Looks like it, Froome looks knackered.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,527
    Gesink catches Rolland at the front. He's a brought a Katusha rider with him

    Froome is finished. FINISHED I tell you.
    Correlation is not causation.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,527
    De La Cruz has been dropped. Spirited effort.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,527
    Contador stetches his legs. Quintana follows.
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Quintana goes and Contador is the only one to react.
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Gesink has 6km to go already full race face. Froome doing his best to limit his losses.
