Feeling Good? T18-58
Movistar had a plan today. Once Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) had over a minute on the Team Sky led peloton, his teammate, Marc Soler, dropped back from the early break. The duo did all they could to ride across the gap. Soler kept looking back over his shoulder to make sure his team co-captain was going well. Soler was willing to ride until if he dropped if he could help get Valverde in yellow. Movistar still had Nairo Quintana glued to the wheel of Chris Froome (Sky) should Valverde's attack come to naught.
