De Panne 1: "Non dire Gatto...

...finché non ce l'hai nel sacco" ahaha! Italian way to say "don't tell till when you are not sure" Very apropriate today. Break-away caught - Baugnies, Vanbilsen, Cordeel, Jerome, Thomson, Finetto and Van Keirsbulck - a small group formed including also Sagan and Gatto for Cannondale, Terpstra and Steegmans. At the sprint Sagan let Gatto the win... or at least he tried: the photophinish showed that actually Sagan won. He went on telling that Gatto had won even after that. "Important is" Gatto said "The team won". Yep!
