THIS IS A TOUR STAGE THREAD - POSSIBLE SPOILERS TO FOLLOW!

I'll stick my neck out here and say that Jens Voigt will get into a breakaway that will survive past the last category 2 climb. He'll take the win as the GC guys are content to watch each other.

I'm hoping perhaps Danny Pate or Ryder Hesjedal will get in a break tomorrow, dunno if they would make it to the end though. It would be great to see Trent Lowe do something too.

One of the Schlecks. I'll narrow it down to Andy, just to be fair.

I see, now you're taking my pick ;) I see it playing out this way, Voigt maybe Vandevelde will try again and make it stick this time.

I had to give up an hours worth of sleep to beat you to the punch. :p

Secretly, I've always had a mini-crush on Voigt...I'll follow his butt over a cat 2 climb any day. :D

OMG you're putting the pressure on me, this is worse than being in the break! :lol:

Wow, that was an awesome stage.

Sanchez deserved that win after being in the break all day, getting caught and then soloing away on the final descent. Nice move.

Thor Hushovd did well to finish in that second group.

is that the group cunego limped in with?

gapowermike 07-11-08 11:21 AM

VandeVelde hanging tough. I am impressed.

tekhna 07-11-08 11:31 AM

But Moreau dnf and out... wow! Not that he was going to make a huge difference this year, but the guy has taken top 15 every year since 2001, last year excepted. And he's out at the 7th stage.

ridethecliche 07-11-08 04:19 PM

Maggy's out too though right?

I wish I could see the attack that happened, but the versus footage showed him in the front, not the winning move.

What a great stage.
