ToB Stage 5

by obutterwick   September 13, 2012  

This looks like a Dan Lloyd stage to me. House in a breakaway, for a change? Guessing a sprint finish despite it being slightly uphill.

Basso Big Grin
VanMarcke

Wiggo's not interested in this tour, He said, Its just a victory lap of the UK. So he's quite happy to drop back and help Cav. I also think he doesn't want to show his hand before the world champs. He's not racing the TT, So its all in for the RR.

I didn't make any changes as I thought Urtasun, House and JTL would be up the front anyway.

At least I have JTL, I can only hope Caruso, Schorn and Martias are in that front group but i doubt it

Even happier that Van Poppel and Howard are in the main bunch. Giving me a few up there and 4 changes for tomorrow.

Sky have given up though.....Lazy buggers. It wasn't a huge task today Thinking

To be honest, I thought Sky would let Cav lose the jersey today, I reckon he'd rather win stages in the World Champ jersey that ride around in the 'gold' one.

Nice to see that they're not dominating though, I didn't want to see a Sky vs the rest race.

True: Dutch Antilles and Curaçao. The Dutch Antilles have been disbanded as per October 2010, with Aruba, Curaçao and St. Maarten now independent countries and Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius now municipalities within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Now head to your local pub quiz and show off your knowledge of Dutch Caribbean trivia!
