Joan Barreda Bort's GPS signal indicates that he has been at a standstill for five minutes for a currently unknown reason. The rider has not set off an alert, so it is likely that he is experiencing technical problems.

That's the way it's been going, and always goes, to some extent.

The rider who finishes first on the preceding day opens the piste on the next, so there are no tracks for him to follow. Slows both navigation and pure riding pace to some degree.

Seems that if you can finish 4-8th on the day, but with a small time margin, that's the best spot to be in tactically. The first 10 riders start at 2min intervals, so if you start 5th, you're 10min behind the guy opening the stage. Even if you end up finishing physically 2 min behind him, you've made 8minutes on race time.
