Time limit is +25% of the winning team's time. He's going to have to go flat out to ensure he gets inside that.

Cheers hippy.

Finding it hard to spot any team tactics at the last Km. Camera just shows a few seconds with a jumble or riders lobbing themselves across the finish line. Gone are any details of who did the lead up, any sprinting or whatever it is they do at the end of a TT stage.

Finishing team tactics? Just spread out and give it some so you're not too far back, should you be 5th.

Not much for the first sector. Hard to tell how much they're giving though.. if they're already on the limit..

They just said the start is more technical.

I've not bothered to check the course.

Given what Carlton just said, I would expect the first half of the course to be slowest. I'd get a map up but I'm *cough* working.

If we didn't know it already, this confirms that Geraint Thomas is nails. He's still there with 5 kms to go.

Most of the top teams seem to have lost time to OPQS on the second half of the course thus far, Saxo will have to buck that trend.
