    Stage 10: Tarragona - Vilanova i la Geltrú 175.7km

    This stage has 175 km and joints the cities of Tarragona and Vilanova i La Geltrú. And it won´t be an easy day at all, because a little more than 30 km before the finish line is located the already mentioned climb Lo Rat Penat, a short mountain pass, but which contains ramps of more than 23% fall and many stretches of more than 12%. The sprinters will have a very difficult work to do if they want to fight in order to be the winner in Vilanova I La Geltrú.

    Riis certainly is a vain person.

    UPDATED Andy Schleck, O'Grady Removed From Vuelta | Cyclingnews.com

    That's the way Bjarne... Show them who's (still) the boss! Don't let winning the race stand in the way of your vanity.

    After this Saxo looks like recessed bunch of schoolboys. Both Riis and riders who are leaving are behaving like they don't feel responsibility towards their sponsor.
