" The stage was good today. No breaks were allowed to go without the yellow jersey. We tried anyway, but also did the sprint. I was 15th, DD (Daniele Defranceschi) 18th, Shane (Braley) 47th, Bryson (Bowers) 48th. The young guys are learning a lot, as are us older guys.
We're learning more about the sprinters here, we'll continue to go for it in the next stages. DD is getting better with antibiotics, my throat hurts from pollution most likely."
