Cap de Cursa
Another stage, another break away, but this one had a few extra things in its favor. First it was a large group of nine riders, two, while they were strong the best placed rider was over eight minutes behind the race leader and, three, nine of the 22 teams in the race were represented in the group. So this group was off with some big break away riders including the old man of the peloton, Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) Pierre Rolland (Europcar) and Rudy Molard (Cofidis) and an up and coming Aussie, Damian Howson (Orica GreenEdge). Maybe today will be the day that the peloton never sees the riders in the break until they are all back at the hotel.
