Vincenzo Nibali did much better in the time trial than I anticipated and ended up with the pink jersey. Bradley Wiggins did a pretty good ride however ended up second to Alex Dowsett of Moviestar and only managed to put 11 seconds into Nibali. Cadel Evans is still in good position but Ryder Hesjedal had a bad ride and ended up like 17th overall. Not quite sure what the GC looks like at this moment but it should be pretty tight. I think its Nibali, Evans, Gesink, and then Wiggins all within about a minute and a handful of seconds of each other.
This is Alex Dowsett and I had never even heard the name before but that shows what I know. Anyway, I wanted to put a photo of the stage winner up out of respect for the excellent ride he did. If I had just beat all the best in the world in a time trial i would definitely like having my picture up.
Thanks for stopping by.
Perhaps Wiggins put it best when he said, succinctly, “It’s going to be a hell of a race for the next two weeks.”
