5th, 9th, 12th and 13th on the MTF at Sibiu, but even so I think they'll be disappointed with the outcome.

Even so lots of positives to take from the performances. Turek so strong even with yesterday's effort in his legs, Lemus suffering from jet lag but hanging in there, Piaskowy and Butler among the first to reach the line from the peloton (Butler said he was first - confirmation from our roving reporters?).

The "what ifs" are the frustrating bits. What if Turek hadn't been in the break yesterday and what if the peloton had caught the break? Could Cab have won it and given the team a good chance of another GC win.

That's cycling though I guess. Sometimes the dice just don't fall the way you want them too.
