Tour de San Luis


Recommended Posts

Stage 1


The road starts to climb almost immediately and the first third of the stage is very undulating including a cat 3 climb at the 55km mark. From there it is a long 110km downhill run to the finish. The stage is the same as last years opener where Cavendish took the victory ahead of Modolo and Petacchi.


Names to watch: Cavendish, Kruopis, De Haes, Richeze, Haedo, Farrar, Sagan, Nizzolo, and Modolo.

Will this be aired anywhere?


Ditto. 5hrs behind, 1st stage kicks off @ 1:20pm their time, expected finish @ 5:30pm their time.


Cyclingfans might have something or Procyclinglive.


Interesting title for J-rod on the official site.

Okay, so what I can work out from the franetic twitter freed of the tour is:


- Petacchi has abandoned. That will make Cav' a furious ball of anger.

- 40kms to go... oh hold on that's changed to 17kms

- 1 groups up the road. Leading @ is #JulianGaday ARG #MarcDeMaar AHO #LeoMessineo ARG #PhilipGaimon USA #EmilianoContreras ARG at either 4 minutes or 9 minutes depending on if you're reading the ever insightful and excitable Pablo Ariel Juarez any of the other ones that are getting retweeted at pace.



Basically god only knows as it's a clear as a spanish soap opera right now. Finish is expected about 5:15pm.

Result stage 1:

1st: Phillip Gaimon (Garmin)

2nd: Contreras

3rd: De Maar


That live feed was shocking and according to reports it's more like a mtn top finish with riders all over the place. 3mins down and no peloton (apparently).

Vaughters is going nuts on twitter about now.
