Well they've not started yet, another 20 mins or so, but thought i'd start because i go get cleaned up from this morning ride

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

Not happy with Eurosport this Vuelta and not been using ITV, but if the race hammers on like its been doing the last few days, before it goes live they might already be up the Cat 1 today  14 Its only 53km from the finish, but its only a 174km stage, yesterday they caught it live with about 70km to go, but that was a 211km stage

I think its about time UCI/ASO whoever is in charge of the live feeds to the TV channels all over the world started an online live channel, no commentary needed, just give us a live feed we can watch for important bits before our home nation decides to start showing it on tv and for the likes of the 2 last sundays, it would be good  4

I agree about the live feeds and the way Eurosport show the race. If you record it on Sky+ the programme sometimes keeps going cos it started late and the recording stops as thats what the schedule says. Bloody annoying.  14

Nearly 11 minutes, looking like some of the break may just stay away already

First points of the day  4

Cat.3 Puerto de la Braguía 56.2 km
1 Montaguti (ALM) 3
2 Sijmens (COF) 2
3 De Greef (OLO) 1

I think Sijmens will be the only one trying to stop Montaguti trying to take all the mountain points

119 Madrazo (ESP, MOV), Abandoned

Another movistar out, leaving them with only 4 after this stomach bug

Only 8 out of the 22 starting teams have their full roster of riders left

Cat.2 Alto del Caracol 75.1 km
1 Sijmens (COF) 5
2 Montaguti (ALM) 3
3 De Greef (OLO) 1

More points and with 9.30 in hand, i think they can get to the Cat 1 aswell which could be 10. i dont know if they could make both Cat 3's after that, if they did and he won them both, it would put him joint top of the mountains  4

Sky tracker keeps switching between Sijmens and Montaguti for the Cat 2  14

J-Rod should be allowed the sprints as they are all that far behind the time bonus won't matter and he's only 11 points off the points jersey again

There we go, just as expected

1. Hermosa 101 km
1 Joa. Rodríguez (KAT) 4
2 R. Kišerlovski (AST) 2
3 Timmer (SKS) 1

This group seem to be working well, letting the points guys get the points and the mountains take them and with still 9.35 lead and only 68km to go with some good climbers in the break, i can see them staying away now because they are no threat overall

Another thing to add to my list of Eurosports crap coverage of La Vuelta after declaring they were showing EVERY stage live, they didn't do that, then they schedule it in, but never stick to it, yesterday was late and finished 30 mins early for snooker and its late today because of the snooker and i refuse to watch the crappy ITV coverage  14 14

Rodriguez to take the race lead?? Only 7 minutes down with the pack over 11 minutes back  39

He's 18+ mins down on lead with the peleton currently 11+ mins down on him on this stage. It still leaves him another 7 mins to make up.

But no, J-Rod wont win the stage if the break stays away, better sprinters, if they stay away, Sijmens will win  14

As long as J-Rod is in the top 10ish then he'll get his green back

The rest of the break are riding like twats, especially Montaguti and the Euskatel guy. If they win I reckon one of the others will throw a bike at them.

Bit of a funny day, plenty of points for Montaguti but no sprinters getting points and I can't see many people being heavily loaded on Lampre guys. I think sticking mainly with GC guys was probably the best way to go.

Good to see Wiggo smiling as he sprinted home with the peloton. Got Montaguti in the break and a few that picked up minor placings at the finish, won't be a huge score today though.

91 I think. Good day to have Montaguti, and leave the rest as GC/Points/KM contenders. Did anyone have Sijmens by the way?
