Only 102 riders have started all three stages of this "start the stage if you want" stage race. Yesterdays results showed 170 finishers.
Today's stage was interesting, and apparently a thrilla as Kelme placed 4 riders in the breakaway top six, with Kelme's Valverde winning the stage. Their team manager probably zapped everbody on the team with a tazer gun before the race. Something happened because Bettini lost almost 11 minutes today. He has finished in the lead group the last two days. Zabel won the bunch sprint for 7th. He's in shape.
Laiseka has finished dead last in both stages he's started(LOL). That guy is to hip gotta go.
