But he still had enough of a margin that no one could catch him on the descent. I can still see him near the finish looking back and then tearing up when it was clear he was going to win. Prior to the stage he told a reporter that he was going to have such a big lead that he would have enough time to find a pretty girl, stop for lunch and still win.
