  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    A great win for Movistar which may seem them overtake Sky in the World Tour rankings. More to follow...

    Tony Martin once again seems to have strong form in this race, but evidently not strong enough on this summit finish to defend his title and alas without a TT he will have to try again next year. Though he should fancy himself for the Chrono Des Nations if he decides to ride that.

    A stage race with only one definitive stage just does not do it for me. Last year at least there were a number of chance to gain time on GC, even if those opportunities were not taken at least they were there. This year the race ignites with a bang and then fizzles off as the winner of this stage will go home with the overall honours.

    Too funny, I wonder if the brains trust at Team Sky realised that the Lopez points won't count?

    To be fair it was a good race - great to see Dombrowski and Edmonson attacking on a WT race.

    However Sky and the rest were outsmarted by Movistar who deserve to be world tour champs.

    Sky have gotten their just deserves by basically giving up after the Vuelta.

    It will be good to do an analysis of points scored - monuments, 1-day, stage pre-post tour and GC's - but I'll leave it for a couple of weeks as currently busy.

    So world tour 2013 is done an dusted.

    Was a nice race this year very similar to many many wt stage races 2013.

    Today's stage a circuit with a real lack of information but Marco Pinotti and the Arrow were in the Botd , nice way to say goodbye

    Argos have a very good sprint stable Mergez  won over Nacer, Special Breschel looks finally to be in form , was shut down and came around a few to finish 4th.
