They had nothing to gain by working at the front...unless someone gave them an incentive to...perhaps Euskatel or Fassa?
Was Paolini or Bettini in the group?Dwayne Barry

If so they probably fancied their chances for a stage win as many of the top sprinters were not there.

Virenque was working his butt off to chase down Tyler. I could see no reason why Quickstep would chase so hard.
If you look at the results...Dwayne Barry

Paolini got 4th, so undoubtably this is why Quick-step was contributing to the chase. He has been they're designated sprinter all tour and has several top-10 placings.
