A tactical move

Both Chrigel Maurer (SUI1) and Maxime Pinot (FRA1) have pulled their Nightpasses.

Both Maxime Pinot (FRA1) and Chrigel Maurer (SUI1) have pulled their Nightpass for tonight. They will be allowed to keep moving after 10:30pm. 

It's a tactical move for both. Maxime and Chrigel earned a second Nightpass by finishing in the top three during the Prologue. They both expect that they might reach the finish in Zell am See on Tuesday. That leaves two nights with two Nightpasses, allowing them to walk or rest whenever they like for the next 48hrs.

The field was spread out over three groups this morning: Chrigel out front going north along the Rhône valley. Maxime and Benoît going over the Simplon pass and Simon Oberrauner (AUT1) and 
Patrick von Känel (SUI2) taking the south route around the impressive Dufourspitze
