Stage 4 The first mountain finish

Green points

Breakaway riders traditionally are fairly popular as low-mid price punts in these games, but we didn't do well, on today's evidence, of picking the right ones.  I'm willing to bet that the two teams picking Cabedo were not expecting him to be second best scorer on any stage.

Red points

As expected, the real contenders now are concentrated around the top, but there will surely be plenty more adjuustment of their order.  And as can be seen from Valverde's 3-figure point loss on the day, those in high positions can lose a lot without necessarily losing much time or many prospects in the race.

Standings

Out of this morning's top ten, Hakkie fared best today, but only came 13th on the day.  He and Los Brolin retain places on the podium, but are passed by Axl who wasn't even in the top ten at the beginning of the day.  The other podium place yesterday was held by someone who has dropped 19 places, but that wasn't even the biggest fall of the day.  There are 5 new teams in the top ten, including Amis Velo, who shares with Bicycle Boy the honour of biggest rise of the day (15 places): 4 others also went 10 or more places in the right direction.

Not expecting anything very dramatic in the table between now and Sunday, but something will happen.
