So, is today a breakaway stage or will the GC guys bring it back together for a big finish?
My money is on a select group reaching the finish together (mainly GC people) similar to the crazy stage during Tirreno-Adriatico.
My 1,2,3 for today is Sanchez, Quintana, Henao. Sanchez has something to prove and Euskatel need a win, Quintana and Henao are both in great form and I can't see any group with Porte in making it to the finish at the front, why would you tow along Porte when he's just going to smash you to bits in the TT?
At this points in time Txurruka has pretty much sewn up the mountains and sprint jerseys so will he bother racing today?
No changes for me so I'll announce my team:
Contador, Porte, Quintana, Sanchez, Peraud, Ulissi, Txurruka, Cardoso, Betancurt
