Mikel 4th in Dauphiné TT

Mikel rode amazingly in today's stage 4 ITT in the Dauphiné Libéré to claim 4th. Mikel was only surpassed by The Big Three, Valverde, Leipheimer and Evans. As a result he advanced to 5th overall, only 1:20 in arrears with the mountains looming on the horizon. Mikel wasn't the only rider to perform well today though, as Samu got an impressive 12th on the stage, and is now 9th overall. Haimar did okay to grab 28th, but as a consequence dropped to 19th on GC. The other riders did as expected, with Rubén coming in 70th, 4:01 back, Iñaki 72nd at 4:04, Juanjo 96th at 4:54, Jon 136th, 6:34 down, while Beñat came in 141st a massive 9:26 down. Tomorrow will be all mountains, so hopefully Mikel, Haimar and Samu can build on their impressive start to the race. Aupa!
