Oh, forgot Van Den Broek and Gesink!

Ooops. Well, I forgot them 'cause they are on the edge here; they could fall either way. Whereas Frank Schleck is probably abseiling or free falling, take your pick. 

Mind you, it's still a bad sign. Obviously neither of them can afford to lose more time and they must take every opportunity to attack from here. Well, at least to take sensible opportunities. One good mountain stage and they'll be back. 

Van Den Broeck Not Bothered By Tour Prologue Time Loss |
"Twenty seconds is negligible," Van den Broeck said. "We'll see at the end of the Tour de France but I don't have to look at others but at myself. It's important that I don't lose twenty seconds on a man like [Robert] Gesink,"

While losing 11 seconds on defending Tour de France champion Cadel Evans (BMC), Van den Broeck lost only two seconds on Robert Gesink (Rabobank) who has similar climbing qualities as the Belgian.
