    I agree. Cadel is only 17 seconds behind his teammate Horner. Davitamon-Lotto is on fire right now, and they would be smart to try to hand the reins over tomorrow. I'm predicting Horner will work his heart for Cadel who will attack about half way up the climb to Leysin and take the stage and jersey.

    Yup. I've been waiting for that boy to shine and I hope last year's tour is an indication that he's about to drop the bomb in all of the mountain stages.

    Well, Cadel did well, but not quite well enough. He came in with Valverde, 24 seconds behind Alberto Contador (Liberty Seguros). Horner came in about 30 seconds after Valverde (2nd) and Cadel (3rd).

    I'll take that. But it may be Cadel on his wheel, either way I'll give Valverde today's stage win.
