Dauphine Libere - Stage 1

Mass sprint finish and Thor is in yellow. Team High Road had everyone up front trying to lead out what looked to be Greipel but it looked like he blew up before the finish. George was up front but looks to have faded a bit too. All finished with mass group though so no time other than time bonuses lost for them. Viewing was pretty great today and the highlights on demand are pretty quick so it was easy to take another look later.
