TdF #4: Green and gold

July 3, 2013

The Aussie team Orica Green Edge won the team time trial and with that put yesterday’s stage winner Gerrans in yellow. A great result for them in what is turning out to be a superb start to the Tour for them. Well deserved as they have been aggressive and picked up the rewards.

Sky had a perfect result losing only 3s to Orica and ahead of the other favourites for GC overall. Saxo also did well a further 6s back. Most of the other time gaps were only about 20s or so, but Europcar lost over 1m which makes life more difficult for Rolland.

There are few reasonably flat stages coming up so we will need to wait until the weekend for a shake up in the GC. Plenty of excitement for the sprinters and smaller teams to be in the breaks.
