Stage !2 -Make or Break...or, have a cup of coffee in your new favorite cup!

Stage 12 looks to be a deal breaker for any contender hoping to stay within striking distance of Chris Froome and Team Sky. Here in the Mnileague, the prize winning has been spread around, so the same methodology will be used here. Have the top team score on the day among teams with the stage winner and you get a JBar Cycling coffee mug.

If Froome and Company put more time on their key rivals or even simply can control  this stage, things may look to be in the bag for Sky. Nobody has been able to put much pressure on them, but a bad day on a stage like this can be costly.

--Who would have thought that a team that includes Nibali, Contador, and Quintana would be running 40th out of our 41 teams? I'm glad nobody offered me a wager on that proposition.
