Just to give you an idea, here is check point 2 before Cancellara arrives

1 Phinney (BMC) 40:06
2 Christensen (SBS) +3:09
3 Saramotins (COF) +3:25
4 Timmer (SKS) +3:53
5 Wagner (LEO) +4:06
6 S. Vanmarcke (GRM) +4:41
7 Geniez (SKS) +4:45
8 Veelers (SKS) +4:59
9 Nuyens (SBS) +5:09
10 Klier (GRM) +5:58

HUGE gaps

Also, it looks like i'm going to get relegated to ITV 4 today, Eurosport not covering it live Thinking

Cancellara is my pick today . . . . if Wiggs doesn't win it . . . and hoping that Howard might be able to ITT , bit no evidence to justify that, but he might get 5pts if Martin wins Day Dreaming it.

1 Martin (THR) 16:37
2 Cancellara (LEO) +42
3 O'Grady (LEO) +55
4 Paulinho (RSH) +59
5 B. Grabsch (THR) +1:01
6 Keizer (VCD) +1:03
7 Phinney (BMC) +1:03

There some of the big ones after first check, but Phinney was only 6 seconds down on Cancellara on 2nd and finish line, so i think Martin's gone out to hard

Cant really say that because Cancellara and done alot of work to keep Fuglsang and Monfort up in the GC by driving on the front, Martin just drops back most days Big Grin

Rather than Wiggins and Cancellara, I shudda picked Martin with Froome !
Maybe Kessiakov will do some good for me. Thinking

Go Froome
