This is pretty much the stage that those who have aspirations to win the KOM must make a move, some very handy points offer.
Now that Dodger is out of contention, could he try for it? Depends how he's feeling I suppose.
I was going to say Moreau would do something today but his team-mate Feillu is sitting handy at the top of the standings with 49 points. With that in mind, Moreau would surely try and win the KOM?
The break today would feature a Garmin rider (Danny Pate), Katusha - Mikhail Ignatiev.
Interesting yesterday that Voigt and Freire tried to get in the break. Both could try again. Rabobank trying to save face. Freire can make it over these climbs in the right breakaway. The Rabobank rider that also comes to mind is Juan Antonio Flecha.
