Chasing The Tour | Stage 9

by CyclingTips


The 41.5km time trial from Arc et Senans to Besançon right before the mountain stages has given the General Classification a big shake-up. Although Cadel lost 1:43 to Wiggins there’s still two more weeks of racing to be done and I need to keep reminding myself that there more than two men fighting for the win. This means that the race is still unpredictable and there are a lot of favorites who have slipped out of GC contention who will take their opportunities when they can. Cadel doesn’t seemed to phased by his deficit and it’s not over until the fat lady sings in Paris.
