I love TTs and all, but to me... THIS is when the racing begins. Looks like a cool stage. I like that, what 15kms of flat bit then up up up! All the big boys will want to get a jump there, right?
This reminds me of a stage where a top 15 to 25 gc rider might try to take this. On paper it is a sprinters stage, but this seems to be a bit more difficult than on paper. Karpets?
That kid's getting plenty strong. Still under the radar a bit but, I think he's approaching Andy Schleck's level for great, young talent.
Cancellara for the solo break at 1km to go
Cervelo Soloist Team (Rival)
Cervelo R3 (Force)
would absolutely love to see cancellara defend the yellow/win tomorrow shades of 2007 (stage 3??) from way out to hold off the sprinters. probably my favorite flat (sprinter's) stage in any gt since the new millenium.
but you know that wiggins would really really like to go out on that inevitable long break, snatch up
the sprint time bonuses and wear the yellow.
too many nerves and too much energy in the group this early, to let a break stay away. cav.
You watching this now or waiting til Vs. covers catches up? Race is about halfway over! Didn't realize vs would be running everything so behind.
Frank Schleck is pretty classy.... after the crash, works his ass off to catch up to the peloton, catches up, stops to get a new bike, then catches up again, loads up on water bottes to start passing out. Nice..
Typical sprinter stage.
I wonder how much Columbia paid that guy in red to go the wrong way at the end.
Been watching these bunch sprints for 20 years now and they never fail to amaze, thrill and terrify me. Whole different breed of riders they are.
i may have overreacted
So what happend to Tom Boonen? I could have sworn he got 11th but I cant find him in any results pages and Cyclingnews and Velonews dont even mention him in their write ups?
