I'm a little late on this one so just a quick recap.
Health Net once again won the stage with Rory Sutherland taking the win out of a break that formed in the finishing circuits in Mankato. It was the only break that Toyota-United didn't reel in throughout the day, but in the end it had no effect on the yellow jersey with Ivan Stevic maintaining control ahead of Nathan O'Neil and Sutherland.
It has to be looking good for Stevic to take the overall since he won last year in Stillwater. I'm heading down there to check it out and it should be a great time. If I can get a good spot on the hill then I should have some good pics to post later on today.
