I nearly missed the first attack as I didn't expect anything serious either.
Big winners today are Evans, Contador and Sanchez. Big losers are Basso and the Schlecks. People said they didn't attack enough, maybe it was because they didn't have it in them?
Contador is still a bit behind but his team has done absolutely nothing so far while Trek, BMC and Europcar have done the hard yards. He might not have as good a team as those ahead but fatigue might even it out.
Another good win by Thor. He might no longer be really able to seriously challenge in the spirit finishes but he's shown courage to get his two wins this year.
