Someone ought to write a song called "cell phone wasteland" - because that's where we are at the moment. Last check, our leaders had 3:25 on the Garmin-led peloton, but we're not getting much else at the moment. Communication is spotty in the high mountains...
So let's think about the finale today: Hands up, who thinks it will be a sprint?
Ed Beamon (Champion System DS) does. "We really want to put one of our Asian riders in the early break", he told Cyclingnews, although that objective appears to not have been met.
"Today will almost certainly be a field sprint. Cannondale is confident with Sagan, Van Avermaet wants a stage win, and UHC is certainly confident too. We’ve also got Brenes who we want to protect for GC."
