Well, yeah. But we've watched Cadel in the Tour before and we know how he rides. This is Christian's first Tour as a leader, so he's gone from having no outside pressure or expectations to being a (way outside) contender for a podium spot. And he's American. And he doesn't have that weird butt-chin. Or talk in a voice that only gay dogs can hear.

I think Cadel has ridden a brilliant Tour, defended himself beautifully when that's all he could do, and I'll do a fist-pump and a happy dance if he wins the whole thing. If it's Sastre, I'll be happy too. The Scheck brothers are brilliant bike riders, and I'd be lucky to have one-billionth of their talent, but they creep me out a little bit. They've got kind of a "Children of the Corn" vibe to them. Especially Andy.

Best part of the stage by far.
