Criterium International: Andy in the break and Sky's show

The rain started at once with the race. Jens Voigt was the first one to attacked but as RSNT tweeted Sky didn't want him to go. Eventually, after 15 km, a break-away formed including Roy, Cammaerts, Poux, Huguet, Vachon and Goncalves. RSNT rider Laurent Didier joined.
Didier even won the intermediate sprint in Sartène at km 77 and few after that Voeckler attacked from the peloton followed by Gautier, Frank and Andy Schleck. YEAH! They joined the leaders on Col de Sainte-Lucie-de-Tallano forming a six men break-away.  
It splitted soon: Voeckler speeded up and 3 riders got dropped, Andy included. They kept chasing for a while and got eventually caught by the peloton. The rest of the break-away passed the Col de Bacinu in the mist and the rain, descended on orrible roads and not sprinted at the second intermediate sprint. It was over.
A new race started and basicly a great Sky show: Kyrienka set the pace on the last long and steep climb to Col de l'Ospedale. Tschop's attack lighted fireworks. Péraud, then Froome: unstoppable. While the race leader and team mate Porte and van Garderen kept watching each others. When finally Porte attacked van Garderen couldn't follow. Mollema did and achieved a well deserved 3rd and 4th in the final GC.
Froome crossed the line pointing at the Sky's name on his jersey: yes, a big team victory.
A victory also for Andy Schleck who showed his jersey in the break-away. Today he was still suffering a little and we saw him often at the back but never dropped or alone. A very good signal, waiting for more and very soon!
