just watched the highlights... not a bad race it was. Finetto, Polanc, Geniez and others attacked with ~two laps to go but where brought back on the flat, so that Felline gave it a try on the early slopes of the final ascent, never to be seen again. #delko Combaud (where does he come from?) tried to follow, but wasn't quite able to and then caught by Gavazzi, Vichot and Gautier near the summit. After the descent Gavazzi found some domestiques who (together with Finetto, Hardy, Trentin and Mohoric) managed to join the group on the flattish run-in to the finish and tried to bring back Felline, but weren't able to.

Hardy (who apparently is with Fortuneo now :S) narrowly managed to beat Finetto then in the sprint for 2nd, after a perfect leadout from Gautier :P
