Paris Nice Stage 6: Look Then Go

Tony Gallopin (Lotto Soudal) took a page from an old hand book.  He seemed to copy the famed "look" that Lance Armstrong gave to Jan Ullrich before going on the attack.  Gallopin must have seen something in the eyes of Michal Kwiatkowski (Etixx-Quickstep) that told him the Yellow Jersey would not be able to follow his attack.  Kwiatkowski had used all of his teammates attacking Richie Porte on the previous descent, whereas Gallopin still had a comrade in Tim Wellers who is sitting right behind.
