Probably won't win any prizes by suggesting that a breakaway will contain the winner.

How about Sebastian Chavanel? Hincapie?

I think Gerrans will have another go today. Didnt quite pan out for him yesterday.

Looks like we have Bennati, Nuyens, Voigt, Sioutsu, Haussler, Arroyo, Fedrigo, Chavanel and Vaugrenard.

I can't decide between Haussler, Bennati and Nuyens.

Another chance for Voeckler to make the TV amybe.
Can't wait til Saturday. I see Kloden a few seconds off the yellow by Sat. evening.
Don't think he will quite take yellow, but will get close.

Could someone more experienced than me in cycling tactics explain why Astana did what they did today? What was the point?

I think it was sort of a revenge tactic to put time on the French Champion.

Did Zabriskie miss the time limit because he was trying to be lantern rouge?

You definitely have a lot to cheer about and we are all cheering with you. I think everyone is pleased to see first timers do so well in the tour. That was a great victory for the team and for Hunter. The team really worked for it today. It was a well deserved win!

For your sister's sake, I hope no American manages to win a stage this year. You'll lose that tiny little erection.
