 Not that it was fine at the start of the race, but the weather deteriorated during the stage, as did the chase of a determined break. Despite Jacob Hennessy sitting up and returning to the pack, after nabbing the  #kom  jersey, there was no discernible loss of horse power, up front. The same could not be said of the two teams who took responsibility for the chase:  #didata and  #ineos. When the latter eventually ran out of men, very late in the stage, things stalled until  #katusha made a very brief appearance at the front.
With the breakaway now finessing eachother under the flamme rouge, a  #ccc took a flyer from the bunch, this in turn stimulated a reaction and the gap closed from seconds to metres.
Jesper Asselmann, #roompot  ever watchful, timed his sprint to perfection, hitting the line as the others were swamped by the charge behind.
  #cofidis and  #vital should be kicking themselves for expecting an armchair ride to the finish, never doing a turn on the front and finishing second and third. Not the first time have I noticed this odd work ethic from French teams.
