    The peloton is getting shredded on the Croix-de-Fer. Cunego is gone.

    seems like all the guys on TV agree. i guess only the final climb will tell us. surely they know they must get time today. later.

    Agreed, Cancellara is not going to drop Evans on a mountain climb.

    If Sastre and Schleck want it, they'll have to prove they are the strongest regardless!

    This is really turning out to be one hell of a race. I'm loving it.

    I know it's said every year, but the spectators running alongside these guys are driving me crazy. I can't even imagine how frustrating that has to be for the riders.

    Certainly Cadel didn't want to see Sastre put so much time into him. However, I think Evans will take several (3+) minutes into Sastre in the final TT.

    Guess CSC decided Sastre was the the better TT option than Frank. Got to put your eggs in some basket, and so they have.

    While exciting, I'm not happy that the Tour will likely be won by a guy who made only one tiny attempt to attack... don't like the wheel sucker.

    TT will decide. Christian it is too far now just as kirchen. The only one with real chances in my opinion is still Evans.

    Not a Sastre fan at all. Looked like Andy Schleck certainly had the legs to win today, and I sure would have liked to see him rather than Sastre have a go at it. Damned team tactics!

    Cycling, to me, is a team sport.

    Andy will have his day. He's the third-man on a super team. That's the hand he was dealt. Or accepted.

    I like team tactics, so I'm not a fan of the ITT deciding the tour. That said, Evans did what he had to do, and others didn't do what they had to do. So is racing.

    WTF. Andy Schleck was 9 minutes down on GC. CSC not only won the stage, but gave CSC a legit shot of winning the TDF.

    It was an epic stage, with fantastic tactics by CSC.

    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    The fact that CSC has their own in-house intense testing/anti-doping regimen makes me much happier to see one of their guys take the yellow in to Paris if at all possible.

    Though versus only seems inclined to talk about Garmin-Chipotle and Columbia, those aren't the only folks who are making non-mandated attempts to get things under control.
