EDIT: never mind, I guess the officials changed it. Better call

Valverde was awesome, he opened up a huge gap on the field. But was not given any time gap??!!! Totally lame, I thought that was the idea of no finish bonuses was to inspire very aggressive wins which Valverde delivered. Isn't is supposed to be a bike length gap for a time gap? Valverde had like 10+ bike lengths on 2nd place. Anyone else agree?

Yes, there was a definitive gap.

Edit: Cyclingnews has the results up now that are probably correct. Valverde was given a second over the group behind him.

The French outsiders took a beating, :39 for Moureau, Gadret and Casar each ~2 minutes. Only other GC protagonist I see that took a beating was Soler with over 3 minutes lost due to his crash.
