Gorka 8th overall with two stages to go

Gorka is still inside the top 10 on GC in Paris-Nice with two stages left to ride. Today he dropped from 7th to 8th, but that's not really a big deal I think. He came in 28th today, in the main pack, 2:15 adrift of breakaway winner Barredo. Dioni and Haimar were also in that group, helping him out whenever he needed it. Igor and Aitor were caught off guard when the peloton suddenly split halfway through today, and came in a massive 8:21 back, in 101st and 99th respectively. The two remaining riders, Markel and Lander, both came in with the gruppetto 18:50 down. The last two stages are both hilly, so hopefully we'll get to see Haimar, Gorka, Igor and Dioni in the midst of the action these next days. Here's the riders' overall placing after the 5th stage:
  • 8th, Gorka Verdugo, 2:11
  • 21st, Igor Antón, 11:14
  • 39th, Haimar Zubeldia, 24:22
  • 54th, Dioni Galparsoro, 31:01
  • 106th, Markel Irizar, 57:57
  • 121st, Lander Aperribay, 1:08:36
  • 125th, Aitor Hernández, 1:10:28
