Stretching the Peloton TOC2
Once the peloton had made it over the one big climb of the day, it was time for teams to see if their sprinters were still in the group. With everyone still onboard, it was Katusha who took up the chase of those up the road. Katusha was riding for their very successful sprinter, Alexander Kristoff. The other teams with strong hopes pinned to their fast men were happy to let the Russian team do the work of pulling back the break away.
