Team Movistar

Weather: At 7 PM, local time, 26C (77F), some clouds. Wind from the west at 24 km/hr (15 mph). 57% humidity.

The Race: For a long time it looked as if Cannondale was going to win the stage with Orica-GreenEdge just .01 seconds slower. But the last team to start, Movistar, blistered the short, technical course to take the stage and the first red jersey. Jonathan Castroviejo was the first Movistar rider across the line so he'll start tomorrow's stage in red.

Trek Factory Racing had a big crash while training, but clearly they came out fine since Trek finished just nine seconds slower than Movistar.

Chris Froome's Sky team couldn't deliver the goods, putting Froome 27 seconds in the hole.
