12:24 - The pack regroups behind the Wiggins group
Km 14 - The pack, including green jersey holder Alejandro Valverde (MOV), caught the second echelon and now trails the Wiggins group by 35 seconds.

Picking riders to go in the break has been one of my major failures in this race. This is the second time I've used my two transfers on riders who I hoped would get in the break, and it's probably the second time I'm going to get 0 points from both of them.

Don't know whether to hate you more for the lack of updates or your ability to get a ride in today. Stuck in the office!

Knew I was right to keep faith* with Sanchez - 81 points  4

'Keep faith' as in missing transfer deadline each of last three days otherwise he'd have been long gone  3
