Change It Up

With the bunch closing in, Cofidis rider Luis Angel Mate flatted out of the break. Because the current time gap was under a minute when the incident happened, the team cars had already been ordered out of the break, meaning it was up to Mavic neutral support to handle the wheel change. Look close and you can see Max bent over changing Mate’s front wheel while the Spanish rider looks on. The whole procedure took less than 30 seconds, but Mate’s fate was still sealed. He never caught back up to Voeckler, who was left to go it alone.
