Well again not really any changes for my team today, gotta stick with all my 5 current DS's for the TT which may not be the best, but are needed for the mountains and thus going for the better TT stars for it

Today could be won by a breakaway or a another sprint i reckon

here goes

Rui Costa
Sagan
Davis
Rojas

Pinot
Caruso
Izagirre
Albasini
Moser

I've made no changes so have 4 for the TT. Expecting to lose a bit of ground today unless I'm lucky enough to have someone in a break, but quite happy that I'll have a decent team for the last 3 days...

Currently...
Sagan, Swift, Freire, Rui Costa
Moser, Elmiger, Albasini, Stybar, Pinot

Break finally got away?

Baden Cooke (OGE),
Vicente Reynes (LTB),
Matteo Montaguti (ALM),
Rubens Bertogliatti (TT1).
Troels Rönning Vinther (SAX)

at 1:55 ahead. Bertogliatti is only 1:45 down on GC so they won't be allowed too much leeway.

From the ticker...

154km Rubens Bertogliatti seems not to want to jeopardize the success of his breakaway mates - he is letting them go and waits for the peloton. Maybe he was also obliged by his sport director.

Montaguti is now best placed of the break overall at +10:33. Consequently, the gap has been allowed to go up - now at 3:20

I thought Heinrich Haussler had abandoned? He's still active in my team  39

Is it me or have there been a lot of false rumors about abandons as of late? Can't comment on HH--he hasn't made any mentions in the commentary so far.

Thanks TER! I'm way too pessimistic to expect the stage win, but looking at my nearest rivals I certainly look like I'm in with a chance of the lead...
Now, which TTers do I bring in? That Cancellara's meant to be quite good right?  3

Awesome - stage win puts me in the lead overall! Some familiar names close behind me though so I don't expect to hold out for three more days...
