    It's exactly the same BS as yesterday. The whole day the "have left" didn't change from 87. And the withdrawal list has yet to be updated. 109, 110, and 132 are nowhere to be found..........

    Antoine Meo has soared over the end of the day's special to win the stage by right at the death. The Frenchman triumphs ahead of general standings leader Toby Price by 18 seconds. After this excellent performance, the Frenchman will now have to wait for the arrival of Pablo Quintanilla to find out if he has managed to take third place in the general standings from him.

    Ahh, those were the lost days for me.

    And Benavides won stage 4.

    Cool - that's what I thought, but I wasn't sure regarding start times etc.

    Maths is not my strong point ;o)

    Toby went from "lost" to gapping the entire field. I don't know anything about that alien thing but i'm sure he looks like one...
    He is in a different zip code, period.
