A Race Happened, Apaprently

The weather in the mountains kept the relay plane grounded today, so all we saw was parts of the final 10K (any camera in town in Breckenridge plus occasional glimpses from the helicopter. Apparently a 12 man group broke away with 60K to go, then over Hoosier Pass a 4 man group consisting of Didier, Acevedo, Ben King, and Britton broke away and stayed away to the finish. On the final short climb in Breck Ben King attacked but was passed by Didier with 300M to go on the climb, followed by Acevedo and Britton. Didier bombed his way down to the finish line with the other two trying to close the gap but they came up just short. Another 25m and Acevedo would have won the stage as all 3 got the same time, with Ben King 15 seconds back.
