A pretty fine stage today!

Who is Contador? I heard he was sick most of last year. Why was Jasche arguing with him after the finish

Cadel (THE MOUNTAIN BIKER) looked great!

Valverde (wheelsucker) comes out from nowhere again to practice his uphill sprint.

Sevilla was awesome. He kept attacking

Horner was a fighta. He was knocked down a few times but finished the fight strong.

Ullrich looked fat in pink and needs a haircut.

Beloki's not too bad at 2 minutes back.

Interesting... He finished in Ullrich's group, 11 minutes back. Most of the Discovery riders were around him which might indicate something was wrong.


It was also announced (fairly discreetly, mind you) that early race leader Paolo Savoldelli was suffering from diarrhoea, so we weren't expecting the Discovery Channel leader to force the pace in the finale, who in fact lost a massive 12 minutes by the day's end.

too bad sh!t happens

I loved Horner's quotes on Paolo. (he was trying to follow him down a mountain. Chris was awed and humbled by Il Falco and now says he COMPLETELY understands where he got the nickname and reputation.

Well that will make anyone ride 12 minutes back. Poor Il Falco, he had the Il Fartos.
Ha-ha! Good one. I think he would be happy if it was just that though. It's more like the Il Rhea.
