    I thought that as well in the beginning, but the alti profile of todays stage doesn't have that much variation, all within 500m of altitude.

    If it's pertaining to tomorrow, I;m pretty sure he could rejet at the marathon bivvy

    This assumes that the other riders are incompetent in changing mapping/carb settings/parts
    It will not be the best assumption from a champion. losing 10 minutes in less then half the stage is way too much to risk for this might be.
    The question is why caselli got the green light to go so fast and leave him behind.

    Nearly 10 mins behind in the overall and 8 min for this stage so far:eek1 I was thinking he might just be pacing himself....but not any more.

    Caselli is in the AMV Ktm team, the question should be why Faria did the same
