Explosion on Nebo

Unfortunately I can't come to you with good news about today's stage. It was a fast stage with a tailwind all the way into the climb. The team rode great to keep us protected and put us in a good position at the start of the climb, but once the action started in earnest everyone came unglued. Jani was definitely the strongest for us today, but he had a puncture part way up the climb that unraveled his day. He showed his strength by coming back to our group, but it was way too late. We contributed to the chase but when the dust settled we had lost nearly 4 minutes. Not the day we hoped for, but we'll fight on. Hope I can report back with better news tomorrow.
