3rd in Asmara from Kwiatek is great Hard to know what he'll do in these one-day races, so glad he pulled that off. As for the TDF the team is going as expected with some good results by Nizzolo and some break appearances, nothing to shout about though.
GC battle is very exciting, Nibali seems to be pulling ahead now but it's tense.
Thanks for results. Seeing Contador beaten in such a way on such a finish is really bad - he should be the one attacking. I can't believe how shitty his performance is. Tour is over with 2 minutes behind unless Contador gets real for once and does bertie things. Frustratingly, Herrada and Intxausti are also in limbo and score zero points. This bad Tour performance makes me reconsider Illes Balears altogether.

Seems like in Portugal we were 2anto2 Eu2kadi - 2nd in GC, points, youth, and team OK from Nieve, great performance as a domestique from Ochoa to claim himself a very nice 6th overall and a stage win. Appo the only dissapointment, coming back with nothing to show. Not the best goal race, but very very solid.

Pretty disappointing race for us in Portugal as Ponzi dropped out early and we unfortunately weren't in nearly enough breakaways. At least Kohler suprisingly did very well in the sprints.
Thanks for the reports Shonak.
If nothing unexpected happens only Quintana can still be of danger to Nibali, I think. Especially with his high rec 1'08" isn't much. Didn't think Nibali would be this strong in the Tour after loosing to Froome clearly in Sochi earlier in the season.
