    I can see VDV ripping up the final climb while Evans, Schleck & Menchov start the staring contest.

    I hope, but i doubt Cadel would be apt to let VDV go on the attack ( and God knows Cadel wont have any teammates to run him down), so he'll have to do all the work. I would love to see VDV, Schleck, and Menchov just attack Cadel one right after the other and drop his wierd ass.

    I would expect more of a 3-pronged attack from CSC. Getting two guys up the road in a break, and eventually Schleck using them on an attack.

    I am going to go with Nibali, a little under the radar in 10th place and wanting to move up. I don't see the big guns covering him.

    Cavendish in a bunch sprint...to the airport for the trip back to England to get ready for the Olympics. Can anyone beat him and Wiggins? I think not unless he's fried his legs.

    Maybe they'll let Valverde go also. It's going to be hard for Evans to counter all the moves unless he gets help from riders wanting to protect their positions.

    Do you think maybe Periero attacks first to test the waters, and maybe Valverde follows? Honestly, at this point I don't know which is the stronger rider. I am leaning towards Periero (gack, I can never spell his name correctly!).

    I honestly think Valverde has blown his pistons from peaking to early but I'm still hoping he will pull some good rides. Pereiro may well be the stronger.

    I didn't want to be the one to say that, I'm glad you did! I think Valverde would be a good decoy, then let Pier...Periie....Pere....uh, Oscar go for it.

    I know he is the guy who barely ever attacks but Cadel Evans will go off the front of the field for the win

    Thats more like it. And maybe some Jens tearing it up at the front for a while to really put Cadel in a spot of bother.

    CSC will light a large fire towards and on the final climb so that Evans is isolated.

    Cavendish is a non-starter today, no surprise really. Hope he does well in the Olympics. He was a breath of fresh air into this Tour!

    The break does not look fluid on the narrow descent of the Col Agnel.
