    Im always stunned at how fast these guys really are. Currently, Przygonski is 15th over a minute behind Barreda, and having ridden with Jakub I can tell you he made me feel like I was stationary he rides so fast.

    So these guys are seriously pushing the envelope.

    He never was/has been fast on the gravel... his formula is consistent pace, good nav and a liking for marathon stages. he goes forwardly quickly though not fast... and rarely goes backwards.

    = multiple to ten finisher. Mister Consistency. :D

    Yes, looking at who is in front of him - they are all fast.

    Generally everything seems right in the world at CP1

    Barreda
    Coma
    Despres
    Rodriguez

    Barreda definitely at alien speed. The question everyone wants the answer to is can he keep it up for 8,000km?
