Tour De Suisse stage 5

by stumps   June 12, 2013  

Nothing created yet so i thought i would get the ball rolling.

Flat stage according to the profile with the teams having to negotiate 2 cat 4 climbs on the closing circuits a total of 5 times.

Sprinters to the fore or will a classics style rider make the jump and steal the stage.

Oppps, I forgot to make changes Crying

Not even an early deadline to use as an excuse! Do you mean to say you do other things apart from thinking about fanatsy cycling that might have distracted you??

Yup, my new panniers and also replacement brakes both arrived this morning. So I was busy playing with the trike.

I see Devolder/Pauwels/Minard/Lemoine have a 4 minute gap

So Visconti has abandoned after a crash. Makes selection for mountains stages slightly easier with 1 less choice

Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) wins the stage ahead of Peter Sagan, Arnaud Démare and Matti Breschel.

Thats a 1,2,3 for me Big Grin

Had Azanza in since the Prologue. Got frustrated and swapped him for Kristoff last night. Then Azanza decides to make a break for it today... so glad he got pulled back because I would have been kicking myself.
