Once again we have the familiar scenario of a break going early and the bunch maintaining tempo in order to catch them with 10-20km to go. See my blog post on Stage 4 to look at the kind of effort (in terms of power) these guys do both in the bunch and in the break.  

Talansky crashes in the last 100m (link to video). First look it seems he is not watching where he is going, but after looking at it again you can see Simon Gerrans go from one side of the road to the other, in front of Talansky, so a combo of this and inattention.

Tomorrow we start into the mountains with several lumps towards the end of the stage.
