got Montaguti and Nieve, hoping for something from both, (got a bit with Montaguti so far). But if Anton is in there it's not going far.

anyone else think that the spanish tv coverage looks very amateurish compared to the coverage of the t de f?

quite like it sometimes though. some of the t de f coverage looked almost *too* slick.

Coverage has been hampered by the weather today. My predictions I made last night are coming pretty much true, big break of climbers, Nibali escaped on the Cat 1 descent but Sky chased them down. Now the trick is avoiding Moreno, Roche etc. gaining too much time on the break, allowing such a big break with 3-4 people high up to get away was bloody daft.

105 for me  4 3 in the break, top 4 on GC, plus Moncoutie who was on an absolute mission taking mountain points today, as predicted.

Does anyone know what happened to Nibali? With the time bonus from the first sprint he should have been 4 seconds off Wiggo, now he's 24. ITV4 were speculating a time penalty? He came in with Wiggo etc.

@Gkam84 re: Anton

didn't realise he was THAT far down, thought it was only 5/6. Not really interested in him.

Wish I'd had Moreno instead of Poels today but won't dump him as I'm expecting more in the next 2 stages. Was thinking of putting in Blanco but thought he might be too old to do it, but came a respectable 8th.

No great damage done to Sky today. Hope the TV is better over the weekend as that's when we'll see what he's made of. Think I'll have a Kat and Liq rider in there though just in case, although I reckon Nieve will win one of the two as he won Gijon-Cotobello last year and he gained some useful time today. Think he's more dangerous than Moreno in fact.

Huh. Stage finish coverage on ITV had him at 24' for some reason, very odd, but list here:

http://www.lavuelta.com/11/en/resultados/index.html?e=13

which I guess is what Oli is working off, has him at 4'. If that sticks then 102 for me.
