TDF Stage 11 - Blaye-les-Mines to Lavaur 167.5 km

stage 11 - Blaye-les-Mines to Lavaur 167.5 km











Quote:
JEAN-FRANÇOIS PESCHEUX’S ANALYSIS : An opportunity that can’t be missed

“After this stage the sprinters will not have a lot of chances left to show off their skills. They will have just two stages left on which to shine: in Montpellier and then in Paris with the finish on the Champs-Élysées. That’s why their teams will undoubtedly be looking to keep a tight rein on the action, just as they will do on the previous stage. But they will have to watch out. Riders of the ilk of Sandy Casar or Jérôme Pineau could try to pull off something spectacular today. The profiles of the stages that follow won’t allow them to do that. And, as there will still be a lot of teams that have not won a stage up to now, those that haven’t will be aiming to make an impression.”

Boooorrrring. Just the kind of terrible tedious transition stage that ought to be outlawed.

Break - chase - HGH/Garmin train - Garmin mess up their lead out - Hobbit wins - lots of fawning from the fanboys.

You forgot the tears...
Severo

Break gone. 4 minutes something.

Ruben Pérez (Euskaltel-Euskadi)
Lars Boom (Rabobank)
Andriy Grivko (Astana)
Mickael Delage (FDJ)
Tristan Valentin (Cofidis)
Jimmy Engoulvent (Saur-Sojasun)

Finish is scheduled around 17.15 CET so I think I will go out for a few hours.

Lars Boom is a serious champion . It's a pity for him today HTC will look for revenge .
HuwB

What's up with French summer? More like Western UK, this year. Hope it improves for those big lumpy things that are almost upon us.

Not much happening in the race, today, either.

OPL or Gilbert get the intermediate wrong, while Cavendish followed by Rojas take what they can. Potential now for green jersey to go elsewhere tonight.

Just got in in time to hear one of Sean's wonderful comments.  'These guys would run over their mother if she crossed the road during the sprint!'  Priceless Laughing

No luck . Last week was really hot and sunny in south-west of France and the race was in the north . Now it's bad everywhere . I told them not to vote for Sarkozy .

That made me smile too!  Only because I could imagine Kelly doing it - especially if the sprint was against Vanderaerden!
phildange

I don't understand why Garmin was leading the peloton . If I had a sprinter I would leave the HTC company do all the chasing work . These robots need a handicap to level the chances .
They don't dare waiting, last year all sprinters teams colaborated to finally offer victories to Cav .
Why don't they try to exhaust HTC ?

If for once a breakaway could resist, i would be pleased . Lars Boom and Grivko will fight until death I hope .
Nolte

damn, puncture for jose joaquin rojas gil.
this will hurt his hunt for the green jersey

Dangerous sprint ahead . How many deaths today ?

The word from my homeland is that Kelly was talking about pricklewire on Sunday after Hoogerland's accident. Am I being wound up or did he really say that? I never heard of pricklewire in Co. Clare despite being surrounded by farmland and a colleague from Co. Cork with a famer Dad hadn't heard of it either.
phildange

Come on Larsey !
Severo

We heard Vaughters calling it from the car at RvV, for which I think everone mocked his tactics but nevertheless understood all those previous races where the f'd it up just a bit better.

I'm also a Boom fan but I am disappointed that he is not tweeting his desserts in thie year's Tour unlike last year.
phildange

Green jersey : Cavendish
HuwB

Very convincing win. Greipel left for dead.
Cav into green.

(Petacchi was a lot of use. Embarassed )

Pretty clear that Geraint Thomas is Cav's new leadout man.
cyclingtv

even though that was a long drag for
cav on his own that was very well done..

It was indeed, but it becomes boring . The team's mechanical efficiency for Cav's sprints reminds me Armstrong's team for the yellow.
And why have those Lampre boys helped HTC in the end ? They seem to believe they have a chance in a regular sprint ?!

It was interesting that when Tony Martin wasn't there Geraint Thomas found the place TM usually occupies!

What happened to Gilbert?
kathy

Gilbert can't compete in a real sprinters' stage.
Fontfroide

I bet if I studied the video I would find that Gilbert helped lead out Greipel earlier.  But it is the fireworks tonight and I don't have time.

Because Garmin are one of the most tactical incompetent teams in the peloton. It isn't as if this is the first time this has happened.

Remember this is Vaughters who told his team not to do anywork in RVV (?) and to sprint for third. Remember they had Hushovd wheelsuck in PR and only fluked a win through JVS.
gerry12ie

They had me scratching my head when they gave up the race lead so willingly on Sunday, too.  Lotto worked hard enough to get it down to just under 4 minutes and I am sure if Garmin did a bit of serious graft they have kept TV out of the MJ.  Vaughter's excuse was they had lost Zabriskie but its not like they had an other rider to race for the GC so why not try and hang on to it for another day or two?  

Thor hasn't really draped himself in glory as Champion...
