Dan Martin (Garmin) and Jacob Fuglsang (Astana) broke away and stayed away on the final climb.What I love most about this photo is that not a single fans is seen with a camera in their hands - which means they are soaking up the effort in the faces of the riders as they pass. Now that is the way to watch the Tour.
