Bradley Wiggins (Garmin-Slipstream) will want to stay at the front and not lose time in the finale. Garmin's team manager Jonathan Vaughters beleives we could see the Brit in yellow by Tuesday.
"He's very precise, he knew what he could do, though I think he exceeded his own expectations with that ride," said Vaughters. "But it didn't surprise me. A lot of people discounted him on such a hilly course, but I knew he was capable of that.
"And he has a lot more to show on this Tour," continued Vaughters. "He's a lot lighter, he's climbing better, and I'd be surprised if we didn't see him in yellow at some point."
After Tuesday's team time trial? "Well, Astana, if you see how they performed in the time trial [with four in the top ten] are a pretty incredible team," responded Vaughters. "But the team time trial is our best chance."
