Who are in a large group of about 30 with a lead of 4.30
Puccio has abandoned
Arroyo Edet Kiryienka and Grivko have a lead of 1.15 on other escapees and 6.40 on peloton
Nocentini Paterski Coppel Ferri and Garate have also joined the leaders
Glad I've got Edet and Arroyo then. Can't believe Kiryienka is out there again! Got Knees from Sky.
Purito (first time I've had both)
looked at having Valverde and purito too but wouldve used too many transfers so just 1 change for me
shame everyone else will have Edet!
Holy shizzle, what a stage.
I think I have 2,3,4,5 but who cares. WHAT a race
WOW what a stage chapeau
1 Kenny ELISSONDE FRA FDJ 22 3:55:36

9 Serge PAUWELS BEL OPQ 30 +1:52
10 Thibaut PINOT FRA FDJ 23 +1:59
Best GT of the season ....
My transfers cost me today as I didn't think his nibs and pinot would do well on the really steep parts ....oh well
Stunning stage. Can I believe what I have just seen?
Oh my god, that was intense!
Chris Horner wtf! His face after he finished looked like he was on some sort of drugs! Well played if clean, but so unbelievable!
How they peddle up those hills for so long is unreal!
My gamble did not pay off!!
Basically I dropped Nibali and Pinot for J-Rod and Herrada
2,3,6,8,11,12,19,20 + edet. Not bad
Sounds like I missed a great race! Nerz turned out to be a good pick for me the last two days, but went Rodriguez/Konig over Nibali/Pinot, never mind. Solid again - and hopefully more points for my purists!
One winner today
1 karlake2 karlake2 231
A good day for me again
13th on the stage
25th for LaVuelta
1st in the Forum League with a 69pt lead
8 transfers left
Well done silas chime!
You leapfrogged me, even though I had a pretty good day (200 pts) so you're now 8 points & 2 places ahead of me... one stage to go
