Man stage 6 was so exciting to watch yesterday! Ben King launched teammate Joe Dombrowski into a dominate attack, and the climber just clawed second after second over his rivals, deep into the yellow jersey. Watching Chris Horner dig deep and fight his way to the chasing group of Michael Woods, Frank Schleck and Natnael Berhane was nail-biting, and I was sure he'd attach that group. Alas he did not.
Can't wait to watch the stage today. With the finish after the descent off the HC mountain Empire Pass, it's going to be interesting to see what happens. All Dombrowski needs to do is stay in the front group. There's sure to be attacks on the final climb, and I would guess that Chris Horner will put in an attack there to try and get on the podium. Because there are so many guys within seconds of each other within the top 10, I'll be they will be attacking each other to move up a spot or two. While Dombrowski has a tight grip on the yellow jersey, it's bike racing and you never know what might happen.
Here's Dombrowski's ride on Strava. I love it when the pros share their races. No heart rate though.
Watch it via Tour Tracker today from 4-6pm eastern.
