Alright, here we go. The road heads up today, and the predicted favorite is just 36 seconds behind the current leader. We have had some surprising stage finishes thus far. So let's hear what'chall think? Will Astana leave Conti alone again, like they did Levi in ToC? Will Sammy Sanchez take the stage but someone else the GC?

Stage 6:

I'm hoping Saxo Bank brings the noise today. I think they set an afterburner pace that shreds Astana which isolates Contador sometime befor the last climb. Of course this only works if Schleck is still close to the GC, and that spill didn't bang him up too badly.

OR Rabobank puts the pedal down today and feeds Astana their lunch in as many days. Rabo is the better bet if looking for a team to derail Astana.

FWIW: Astana has looked pretty average in this race. If they didn't have Contador we wouldn't be talking about them. Plus this team is weaksauce compared to what they rolled with @ ToC. And Chavenal abandoning??? WTF at least go out and show the yellow some respect, be a man loose it on the road.

It was his brother, not the Yellow Chavenal. Sylvain is still there.

The announcer referred to Evans as one of "the world's two slowest sprinters.."
