    Speaking of seconds, how brutal would it be for Sastre if he loses by 1 or 2 seconds? Say what you will about uniball, but if he were in Sastre's situation on l'Alpe, he would have put his head down and sprinted to the line.

    What happens if Evans loses by ten seconds? He'll realize he should not have been dicking around in the middle of the Alpe.

    Is that a radio on Vande Velde's back? He looks like he should be living at the Notre Dame cathedral.

    ...and Cadel reaches the finish line. Dammit that's a new record, 8.89 second time trial.

    Go get 'em Cadel!


    Just saw the p---head Schumi beat Canc at time check 3 by 14 seconds after being down by 13 seconds to him at check 2. I hope they bust this bastard. Given all of the breaks he's been riding in and even trying to make a go yesterday, you think he'd be wasted.

    Hmm, non-regulation goatee. Check his face fuzz. I thought only moustaches allowed in the tour?

    What I want here the commentators say is: and Sastre is off the line...here we go now, the man to beat...oh no he's stacked into a house! It could happen.

    I just cant stand someone winning the TDF without having won a single stage. And for that reason I'd like Sastre to win over Evans...

    I'm actually not at all surprised if Sastre keeps the jersey...and Fränk might produce a very very good performance too...

    Evans +38 at first check. Maybe an off day? He's behind Menchov and VV.

    EDIT: Just noticed that Evans is behind Kohl at first time check. [​IMG]

    Andy could lose his white jersey with the TT performances going right now.

    One thing for sure, he's not being superman in the ITT like he was in the 2007 Giro. I recall being stunned last year and thinking, "Jeez! A Schleck can TT?!"

    Frank is down by 50" at the first TT check. At least he's not showing superman performances in this stage.
