    Prediction: Lance keeps yellow, and Zabel gets closer to green.

    Voigt and Zabel go out on an early break. As usual, it comes together but Voigt moves into the top 10.

    Seriously! I would love to see Cipo get it, and if not him, then Petacchi. But for sure, I got a sore spot for Cipo. I'm still laughing when I think back to the prologue, when they cut to Cipo standing in his TT outfit and seeing his managers with scissors cutting out the legs so he would have shorts. He is all flash sometimes.

    I hope he never retires, he really makes the race a lot of fun to watch.

    Oh yeah, McEwen gets the stage. If not him, an AG2R rider. Take your pick.

    I'm still waiting for my man Hondo.

    G'day,

    would appear to be another sprinters stage....although sooner or later one of the breaks has gotta stick. Appears so far that CSC & cofidis want to go every day.For that reason, i'm picking Stewie O'grady for a 150km break & win the stage (hopefully)

    cheers,

    Hitchy

    Pretty optimistic there Hitchy. Stewie is having trouble staying on the bike, let alone win a stage. Although, that coulda got him fired up.
    I still remember that stage last year where he ran out of gas just 500m from the finish. If anyone deserves a stage win, it's O'Grady.

    Baden Cooke has been pretty quite so far. I wonder what the deal is there?

    McEwen and Zabel at the wire. McEwen is riding great and Zabel seems to be rounding into form.
    The road don't go nowhere, stays right where it is.

    G'day Tigerboy,

    yeah....Stewie is struggling alright....he wants a stage badly though, for Whitey as much as anything else. I reckon he might have a go. Cookie is having to work to hard before the last 500m just to stay in the 'line', he's pretty much buggered when the sprint starts. it doesn't help that Mcgee can hardly sit on the bike. Don't forget SBS sunday nite....stage 8 10.30pm till stumps!...guess I'll be late to work Monday!,

    cheers,

    Hitchy

    My green jersey pick is O'Grady.. it's still early in the Tour yet, guys. Give Stuey a break. I'd like to see either him or Zabel take the stage.

    I would LOVE to see Zabel win another maillot vert just as much as I want to see O'Grady win his first.

    I picked Backstedt for the cobbled stage wins, but no luck. Ahh, there's still hope though. If not, either Voeckler or Nazon (again).

    I will go with Robbie as he is still in the right place at the right time as of late. Want to see O'Grady in the fight at least once.

    14 H 20 - Peloton In Beauvais
    At the site of the 1st intermediate sprint the peloton's deficit to the five leaders is 12'04".

    14 H 17 - Lead Continues To Grow
    After going on the attack at the 16km mark, Sandy Casar (FDJ), Jakob Piil (CSC), Stuart O'Grady (COF), Thomas Voeckler (BLB) and Magnus Backstedt (ALB) are now well clear of the peloton.
    The latest check has the five escapees 11'35" ahead of main pack.

    Previous stage standings




    14 H 38 - 120km To Go
    The leading quintet has 120km to race. All five are cooperating in the pace-setting duties and their advantage on the peloton is now at 14'30".

    14 H 37 - Advantage Over 14 Minutes
    The five-man escape group are now 14'30" ahead of the peloton. Rain is falling on the roads between Amiens and Chartres and it appears that it could be a similar scene to the eighth stage of the 2001 Tour when a group of 14 riders put over half an hour into the peloton by the finish in Pontarlier. That day was a very wet stage that included Stuart O'Grady (who ended the day by claiming the yellow jersey).
    Today, however, the best-placed rider in the escape group is Thomas Voeckler.

    I think Stewie takes the stage, Voekler takes ol yeller and
    the peloton finish 2 minutes down from the break after a
    valiant chase lead by Fasso and Lotto.

    They just showed some pictures of the breakaway group and it's truly amazing how big Backstedt is to be riding the tour. I always knew he was around 200 lbs., but when you see him next to some of the other riders he looks like a giant.

    He is the heaviest rider in the TDF this year. He weighed in at 98kg (~216 lbs.)! Let's hear it for the big guy!!!

    17 H 52 - Backstedt Leads It Out
    Backstedt has started the sprint, O'Grady has taken the lead and will win the stage... Stuart O'Grady has won his second Tour de France stage.
