Last year this stage was strange with a very small group making it over Independence Pass ahead of the peloton and George Hincapie winning. I would expect a very different outcome this year.

Castiblanco is in the break, trying to get the KOM jersey over Cottonwood Pass, though the peloton hasn't let this massive break get much time. Already down to 1:30, could be very interesting if it comes back together again early.

Danielson has bridged to the break! Looking to defend the KOM apparently.

140k left and only about 50 riders left in the peloton. Could be huge gaps today.

Two in the break. PLEASE get me some points Devil

The break is

Danielson
Colorado
Friedman
Castiblanco
Louder
Aru
Jiao
Zabriskie

There are a few chasers behind trying to catch up. NO Nibali today though. So hopefully he'll just hold in to go over the top of the final climb first and bomb down it to win Wink

Danielson JUST holds on to win. Don't know what the time bonus is, but he might get yellow aswell as KoM and aggressive rider today Wink

1-2-3-9-17 + a handful of sprint/climb/GC points. If only I'd remembered to change Sutherland for TJ. Crying

Wow - the stage record for the season has gone! Someone got 269 points on this stage (which I think is more than I have for the whole tour!) - Every single rider in double figures. Nice work.

Not often i score 165 on a stage with a rider scoring 70 points, and still drop in the overall for that comp!
