    Di Luca will not have to many opportunities but with a relatively short climb at the end he may have a shot. My crystal ball is showing a group away for most of the day with an Astana rider in there. Robobank doing most/all of the work and then Astana blowing the doors off on the last climb, Menchov isolated but has no trouble staying with Levi. A group of 5 or 6 to sprint out the finish with Di Luca taking it.

    Who's a stronger climber, Levi or Menchov? Does gradient play a factor between these two?

    That last climb was insane. The Barloworld guy was going sideways and looked like he was going to fall over, heh.

    It got both the Liquigas riders. From the description of the weather conditions on today's stage, it might actually have been welcome.

    I know what you're saying, but not the way it was done. It was on the apex of a fast 90 degree corner and it was right on the face, not the body. It probably hurt like hell.
