I just watched today's stage and - what a finale, I didn't expect to see this type of racing until the flemish cobbles. #astana Jakob Fuglsang attacked over the top of the steepest part El Garbi like it was the Paterberg, #movistar Valverde followed and from out of nowehere came LL Sanchez to join them on the descent. Followed by 30 km high-speed chase in false flat downhill to really flat plains along oranges, oranges and more oranges. Team Sky chasing behind couldn't catch them. Joined by BMC - couldn't catch them! up came Lotto - still couldn't make it.

In the end, Fuglsang knew he just had to lead out and Sanchez half-heartedly tried to follow Valverde to his first win of the season. The man with the completely flat form curve is back, in style, winning like Kristoff beating Terpstra in RVV.

Unexpectedly good early season racing!  :cool
