Ouch Miss Jane...
C and the gang aren't having the best of luck this week. Between the weather and some crashes, they are a bit down but they keep coming back giving it a good fight! With this post Trent had moved into the Best Young Rider's Jersey which is great. I think the GC battle isn't going as planned but I think there is going to be a good fight for a stage coming up.
