Some buildings need a powerwasher.
Well, the propensity for a wave of predictions in tomorrow's stage after the last day's stage finishes seems to have dried up.
I predict another break with no riders in contention for the GC or the sprinter's jersey. The break will stick. The peloton will come in together with no major changes to the standings.
Boring, but I surmise that none of the GC contenders will be killing themselves with the ITT coming up.

I think the sprinters' teams will draw in the break on stage 18.
Go Robbie Hunter!

Ha! I was there. 300m from the finish. When the tannoy announced that the 4 escapees were at the 2k mark and that Sandy Casar was fighting them off they all started drumming on the hoardings. It was very exciting.
The first 4 came past looking dog tired and the sprint finish was uphill.
Par contre, the peleton led by Boonen came by 10 minute later like an express train WHOOSH!
I nabbed 4 baseball caps, some toy cars, pens, key rings, big hands and other assorted crap fom the caravan. Got a big sunburn, and photo of Sandy Casar as he toiled by. Excellent result all round.
