All the GC contenders stay together up the final climb

Sorensen emerged as the winner from of a seventeen man break which broke clear with over 100km left in the stage.  I remember seeing Sorensen’s power stats from the TdF last year.  This is how good these guys are.

Sastra falls apart and looks to have gained 20yrs in the past 8 days.

Get in there Lloydie – they won’t bite!

Richie is felling right at home on the podium these days

Vino is certainly delivering some drama to the race as the plot begins to thicken.
