So we're into some mountains today

http://skysports.html.infostradasports.com/asp/lib/event/tour/index.asp?...

A break over the first climb has 5 mins

Rohregger, de Kort, Bagot, Bonnafond, Vorganov, Busche, Toribio

None of my guys this time, but thats ok cause a break aint going to stay away today, all the big guns will be going for it up the last climb trying to shake some of the "might be" GC guys out the back i think

He cant, he's tied until the end of the vuelta, so unless the UCI let him, then nope

It did say it would be likely that he would be allowed to go to the tob as the grand tours dont like to annoy riders and put them off coming back.

But its not upto the tour, he's withdrawn, so UCI rules say he's signed up to La Vuelta so he cant race till its finished, so i hope he dont get into the ToB just because i dont like him much and want to see other riders winning  19

yh bit the UCI dont normally say no, especially as we still dont know why he abandoned, but i think if he goes anywhere he will go to the classics in canada

My wife and I watched the first two stages of the Vuelta on ITV4 and found the Aussie commentator absolutely awful and grossly irritating. We normally find Sean Kelly very trying as he manages to mangle the English language in a cruel manner, but from now on we'll be watching Eurosport. A shame really, because ITV4 do cover cycling, whilst the BBC absolutely ignore our great sport.

Well thats my stay in pursuits over, was lying 7th, but i'm 66th overall, so decided to make some changes

IN:Manuel QUINZIATO OUT:Mark CAVENDISH
IN:Luis Leon SANCHEZ GIL OUT:Stijn DEVOLDER

So my top tip for tomorrow is, Switch out someone and get Devolder in cause he might just break and win tomorrow, take all the jerseys and win the whole thing  19
