Lance will lose contact on the Col de Cabre then crash on descent to have an alibi

Sisteron is a beautiful town overlooking fields of lavender. Wish I was there!

Cavendish.

Did you see how he won the group sprint today with ease even though Hushovd and Petacchi probably wanted the points more?

He didnt have any problems sticking with the main GC pack yesterday I doubt he'll lose contact on a type 3.

The way things have been going for him, I wouldn't be surprised if LA's bike caught on fire and plunged over a cliff.

On a flat.

In the rain.

After he was attacked by a wild boar.

yawn.

I hear there is a roundabout only 1km from the finish. Why do they do that? Seems rather dangerous to ramp the field up to 50-60kph and then throw that at them.

Lampre has gotten really good at disrupting the HTC-Columbia train, good tactics.

I wonder if he'll get fined or relegated for that. Hasn't that happened to McEwen?

Boy that Cav sure is completely average.

Anyone get a reading on the top speed of the sprint...i heard with the tail wind they might have grabbed 80kph?!
