Timing the Catch TA15
The peloton did not want to catch the break too early. For the sprinter's teams it would mean they had to work that much harder to control the front of the group, to keep other opportunists from attacking off of the front. As they rolled under the 10 K banner, Etixx-Quickstep had all of their train together, the question was, were they setting up their sprinter or just protecting the Maglia Azzura of Zdenek Stybar? Riding in the second train was Orica-GreenEdge undoubtedly setting up their youn fast man, Caleb Ewan.
