Qinghai lake stage 5

Minimal action today, was a long 205km at an average elevation of 3300m. Again the breathing was the greatest obstacle and the thin air kept the pace very high, 45kmph average. Finished in the inevitable bunch sprint, I kept myself up front and out of the crashes, team did a great job looking after me and ensuring I have as much energy for tomorrows stage which tops out at 3900m 15km from the finish!! Of to bed in the clouds!!
