The breakaway gap is over 13 minutes now. The countryside looks beautiful as they rattle along flat ground, though there are a couple of ramps to come.
David Alderton emails in on the subject of great breakaways: “David Millar in 2012 up Ventoux for one that won brilliantly. Jack Bauer in 2014 for one that heartbreakingly didn’t.”
Seem to recall David Millar going for it in Barcelona in the Tour one year. In fact, here it is from 2009. That final climb up to Montjuic finished him off.
