Paris Nice Stage 6: Job Done

Tony Martin (Etixx Quickstep) used the talent that helped him win three consecutive World Time Trial Championships to get his teammate, Michal Kwiatkowski, across the valley and on to the next climb with 35 seconds in hand.  While Martin had gotten over the five previous climbs just fine, the final ascent up Cote de Peille, proved too much for him to handle as he slid off the back of the climbing peloton.  As seemingly every TV commentator says, "Its job done for Tony Martin."  But it was a job brilliantly done for the team.
