    That stage is almost as flat as a table top. I'll go out on a limb......McEwen anyone!

    I like watching the carnage of bunch sprints as much as the next person but I'm dieing to see what happens to tdf 2006 when they finally hit a mountain on Wednesday. Boonen's lost his way, McEwan is on a rampage, the king is dead long live the king.

    Robbie's last shot for awhile.......if ya gunna suffer over the hills ya might as well do it with another victory in your pocket!. Boonen is frustrated & making amateur mistakes every sprint & Thor just doesn't have the speed.....Robbie all the way

    Too flat for Schleck. He'll be better off in the mountain (if he has recovered from his disappointment about Basso and his 8 minutes delay in Gc).

    Well today looks the last day for the main sprinters to show there stuff. I think this will be an extreemly exciting stage, one of the most exciting so far possibly. The riders are rested and energised and the course isflat...but that means quick, tactical riding and hopefully a superb finish! I dont think there will be a successfull breakaway, just because the sprinters will be taking this as there 'last chance' on the flats so they will be determined to catch any escapers.

    Enjoy this stage people...i think McEwen could be a forth win, but it will be a tough finish!

    Robbie's on a roll-McEwen again.

    BTW-they said on Sunday Robbie can do about 1800W in a short burst. Is that at the end of a stage or before he has had a couple hours in the peloton?

    Any idea what power a sprinter of Magnus' size generates?

    I think Robbie's got nitrous oxide on his bike. That sprint today was crazy. He still almost pulled it out. He'd have 2 more stage wins if he hadn't gotten boxed in. He's got freaky acceleration...
    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.

    Man, that is absurdly close.

    Will someone make sure that Boonen eats his Wheaties in the morning, during next year's tour?

    Doesn't get a whole lot closer than that finish. Man I love the bunch sprints...too bad there is all that riding before the sprint. LOL j/k

    Shoul dbe interesting to see if anyone that matters gives it a go tomorrow or if someone WAY down gets away on the big break like Vokler (sp) a couple of years ago
