Criterium-du-dauphine stage 6

by livestrongnick   June 13, 2014  

Flat but technical stage today, personally don't think it'll be a typical sprint finish.

Just the 2 changes for me

Bardet (bouet)
Matzka (pozzato)
Froome
Kelderman
JVDB
Reza
Yates
Larsson
NVDL (Nick van der lijke)

No way will it be a sprint, Ive left impey in as he is the type that could make it, but more as i didn't want to make any penalties and already have a decent backbone

Froome
Kelderman
Talansky
JVDB
Kangert
Impey
Durasek
Berhane
Gougeard

I son't think I have had anyone in a breakaway for a couple of months now, if ever.

Exactly the type of race I expected, but only had Benedetti in the break. Kept Voeckler as I thought the last three stages would all be won by a break and thats the kind of stage he normally likes, but either he's not fully fit, or he's keeping his powder dry for the Tour. Either way, he could've at least texted me.

I've just taken Voeckler out so he will no doubt win tomorrow.
