More good racing: today's flat profile looks like one for the sprinters... until the final 3km in Hesselberg, where the race gains 200 meters in the last 3km. If it's a selective hill, the stage win becomes wide open -- no particular names come to mind except the same guys who duked it out yesterday, along with some of the big names who blew out the back (Larsson, Kohl, Voigt, etc.). And if the hill isn't selective, let's see, I guess Ciolek is the fastest Columbia guy, so there you go.
And more problems with video: at this point, it appears Universalsports.com is limited to providing video on demand, and at a delay of at least 24 hours (and counting). Originally they were showing this on a short delay, but that's out the window now. I wrote earlier about their problems getting up to speed -- forgiveable by Cycling.TV standards -- but it ain't gonna get it done today. Check the usual alternatives for someplace else to see. We've got a barnburner on our hands in Deutschland so far.
