Pushing Hard with Wiggins Off the Back
With Bradley Wiggins off the back the teams of the other contenders came to the front of the peleton and push the pace up, trying to put as much time between themselves and the 2012 Tour de France winner. Apparently, Wiggins has said that he has a cold that has been affecting his performance in the race. Today, he lost another three minutes to the Maglia Rosa wearer, Vicente Nibali. Ryder Hesjedal, the winner of the 2012 Giro isn't faring much better.
