I guess he's in contention, but ultimately i don't think he has the stuff to last over 3 weeks.

Great run by Wiggins today for the win. Beats Westra (who?) by 2 tenths of a second. To me there's something abit odd about Wiggins. He doesn't strike me as your typical bike racer, but I guess looks are decieving.

Real tough break for Levi, but he pulled it together for a decent TT today, even though he was clearly out of it. He's a real pro!

Nice finish for Tejay, but I'm sure he wanted a podium. Fifth isn't to shabby and he wins best young rider though.

Tony Martin and Frank Schleck finished up pretty strong after an awful start.

Here is your top 30 -

Wiggo is an alcoholic, who can throw away everything just to booze. Beer is his favourite drink. In 2010 he won the prologue of the Giro D'Italia, drank from the winner's champagne [spumante] and he immediately was lost again. The Giro was a flop. The Tour de France that year not much better.

So, his team hopes he doesn't win too often, and doesn't have to resist the temptation.

Lieuwe Westra was a talented cyclist in his teens, quit, became a hardcore raver, shaven head and pills popping and all, until he took up the bike again in his late twenties. Until then he worked as a street paver, wasting his body heaving cobblestones.

His nickname is 'the beast', and now that he has moved to Spain and lost four kilos he is not just a good rider in the Flemish classics anymore.

So, basically, the alcoholic beat the raver.
