Valverde done messing with the break.
They have a chance, now.

That first two hours were really entertaining vs. joining the live coverage now (14:00 cet) and seeing a decent sized break of 15-20 ahead by 5 mins.

Nice try from Bertie and good reading of the race by Piti to follow it. good that they let the break go though now, finally Sagan made it Smile
Bertie spending a lot of time by the team car since returning to peloton - did he get ordered back so Peto could win the intermediate sprint?

Just got back to see Contador climbing into car. Doesn't seem like he's in that bad a state.

Agreed.
Rumour has it that Yates and Contador apparently not speaking, now.

I think he quit, rather than abandoned, if that makes sense.
Poor.
Rest day tomorrow, too.

Yes, it must be something along those lines. No doubt we find out soon enough.

Hard to tell, but nearly all of this road is 5% gradient. The other side of town, there are some sections at 8-10%

I was expecting earlier aggression from the GC men today. Thought the bunch would be riding a higher pace.

Not sure if you are being ironic. Wink
Sky are not going to do anything, or let anything happen, that is different.

That's the steep bit of the Beixalis out of the way.

No irony from me. The gap was steady at 6' and then eased out to 10'. Had thought more effort to dislodge some domestiques might be forthcoming, but now I see the eye candy penultimate climb will probably do that nicely.

With 2 movistar riders in the break, it was in sky's interest to let it go as big as possible

Dumoulin is very familiar with the Arcalis.
Giant's Vuelta hotel is up the road a bit.

While I missed the stage until 30k to go, I am refreshed to see Thibaut in the front.  Maybe he might still have something to do with the race.

I think he is feeling good, but he won't seem to commit to a big effort.
Probably more worried about Majka.

edit - did his pedal just slip ?

Hail at the finish. Might have blown over by the time they arrive.
