In line with Liberty Seguros team manager Manolo Saiz's comments about the heat being a determining factor in this year's Vuelta a España, CSC directeur-sportif Kim Andersen also had a few words of advice for his charges along the same vein. "Jakob Piil was very active at the beginning of the stage and was part of a couple of breaks, but he wasn't given the chance to escape. I've said to the riders, if they go with a break it has to be a group of at least four riders, otherwise it's unrealistic with the tremendous heat down here," he said on team-csc.com. At one point in yesterday's third stage to Puertollano, the outside thermometer on the CSC car indicated a reading of 45 degrees Celsius (113° Fahrenheit).
