My instinct today was to make some changes, drop Matthews/Swift/Ratto and bring in Kwiatowski, Cunego and another cheaper rider but I've gone against that and made no changes at all.

I'm concerned that today will go the same way as yesterday with a breakaway staying out but Orica have won this stage (similar/same route) for the last two years on a sprint finish so fingers crossed that happens again.  Also, big day tomorrow so surely the GC boys will be fairly quiet?

Anyway:

Valverde, Contador, Peraud, Swift, Matthews, Ratto, Durasek, Fedrigo, Arroyo

Made the mistake yesterday of no quick guys so brought in Swift and Matthews for todays stage. Looking at the profile it wont be difficult for them all to stay together but it depends on who is in any breaks.

The stage finishes in Vitoria Gasteiz, Koldo Fernandez's home town

As it did last year when he finished 91st.

Didn't put him in the team.

Did bring in Villella for Adam Yates though

Matthews
Swift

Martens
Landa(olivier)
Arashiro(Tosh Van Der Sande)
Villella
