Taking Fluids Dono4
With the peloton approaching just 20 kilometers to go, riders were dropping back to their team cars to grab water bottles and gels. Once there is less than 20 k to race, riders can no longer get any thing to eat from their team cars. Mikel Nieve (Sky) was the man on the team to go back to the car. He may have not only been collecting water for the team, he probably collect some information of the final climb as well. It is less usual to see a rider with a bib number that end in a 1 being the one to go to the team car. His #41 designates him as the team leader of Team Sky.
