Good morning..

We have a break of 7 today

Jens Mouris
Klaas Lodewyck
Manuele Boaro
Thomas De Gendt
Tomasz Marczynski
Koen De Kort
Calvin Watson

The first sprint went to De Gendt ahead of Boaro and Mouris.

Thankfully I took in De Gendt overnight as I knew he could cope with Old Wullunga hill, didn't expect him in the break though.

OK, in the last few KM, the gap has dropped to 2.44 because the other teams are driving to catch before the climb

Time gap now 2:22. Peloton averaged 56.4kmh between km 86 and km 91

Now the peloton have backed it off a little to not reel the break in to quick

I guess no-one else is awake, I should really create another account and talk to myself  3

35km to go and the gap comes under a minute

Blanco really pushing hard on the front to reel them in. De Gendt trying to stay away in the break, but no-one else seems to have the pace, he wants to hit the climb with a gap, so that he can stay with the peloton

Argh! I had EIGHT scoring riders... Balls.

I did get KoM badge though and even with 30 penalty points managed my 'High Stage Score' badge too with 183 points, just damn annoyed I missed out on the Full House badge by one rider.

Also had two of the top three AGAIN  14

Thanks folks. It is only up so early cause I don't sleep much at the best of times.

What I will say, just because the scores are up when you all roll out of bed, doesn't mean it was any quicker than last year.

It still takes a few hours from stage finish to me updating them.

So don't expect me to be the same with Qatar. It will be a couple of hours and because its a bit closer, you will all be awake moaning that I haven't done them yet  19
