A position in the day’s breakaway was hot property, and with good reason, on stage 11 of the Tour de France.
It took around 70km of constant attacking before it finally formed with any advantage, and then went on to contest for top places on the stage into Cauterets.
ORICA-GreenEDGE was amongst those trying to play a role in the moves but missed out when the cord eventually snapped.
“100% we were trying to get in the breakaway,” sport director Matt White said. “But there were 22 teams with the same objective.”
