Not really slip sliding away

July 24, 2008

Even though the peloton is letting some riders jump clear, the yellow jersey isn’t in real jeopardy.

With two leaders – Burghardt and Barredo leading, there is a threesome nearly four minutes behind and the peloton is about 11 minutes back.

Sadly, Cunego is ANOTHER ten minutes behind the peloton. But his teammates are helping pull him back into the pack. We’ll see if that works.

Oh, all this is happening 108KM into a stage that’s nearly 200KM long (197KM to be exact).
