Most folks running where he had been never get a clear day, always there are slower riders ahead, dust, etc that limits your pace at some point during the day. I don't think he'll have that particular issue today!
And the better conditions that come with an early start seem to pay off. He's +12'12" at CP2, solidly around 45th position. He used to run in the mid-50s before rest day.
