Going by the first two days, it's going to be a long Tour......

I think the plan was for Niv to try and get in the break today. He was certainly towards the front going through neutral, but there was no way on earth he could have made it into that strong group on the flat. Krists should have given it a go imo.

Things are a bit better over in Hongrie - the scene of many a memorable ICA moment. Einhorn was 6th and 5th in the two sprints and Piccoli and Badilatti have managed to avoid losing time so far (a favourite of theirs on "easy" days). Two more sprints to come and then the not so tough MTF on the final day. While there are no big GC names here, there are plenty of mid-level ones, so it won't be easy to get a result.

Finally the devo squad is back in action. In Poland again! There is a 1-day version of the Carpathian Couriers tomorrow with a smaller/weaker field than normal (Favourites: Tracz, Uno-X, Repa, Arm and Pajur) and then I presume they will also race in Baltyk - Karkonosze a few days later.

Still waiting for that first Israeli win outside Israel, but it might not be far away.
