    What didn't he do? He basically slingshot himself (with a lot of help from Salvodelli) onto the podium.

    Your say in Memphis didnt learn you much.... Theres only one killer

    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    One of the best GC battles in a long while. Fantastic bike racing. The finishing TT is going to be exciting.

    Tomorrow's stage will be fun to watch, too. I think the Gavia comes too early to be absolutely decisive. The GC contenders may move away from the rest of the group on that climb, though. I think the key to tomorrow's stage will be how many teammates you have once you come over the Gavia.

    Just think how much more exciting it would be without those damn race radios.

    What a great stage! I'll have to get my ride in early in the morning tomorrow to see if I can catch the tail end of stage 20. Give's me some motivation to push a little harder

    contador could lose another minute and half tomorrow to Ricco and DiLuca and will still win w/ Sunday flat TT.

    And now I present our daily dose of Ricco's Ramblings:

People have been saying that Contador is stronger than me on the climbs, but as far as I can remember, I’ve dropped him on ever summit finish. Tomorrow I will go on the attack again and I just hope (CSF-Navigare) isn’t working behind me.”

    I recall some guy here telling me a while back that Di Luca wasn't a good climber,
    or even a decent bet as a GC all-rounder. Wonder whatever happened to that guy...

    He's behind by 4s. He lost 8s in the TT. And before someone tells me "He lost his chain", well, that's part of racing. I don't think Contador or Di Luca would be whinging about that, either.

    Anybody see any video highlights of this one? Looks like a belter! I can't imagine how Savoldelli felt on the downhill.

    Ricco grates on my nerves. DiLuca's ride was spectacular, though.

    Down with Race Radios!
