Me thinks Evans doesn't have much of a team.

I don't get why the Schlecks are fixated on Contador. He's too far down to be THAT worried about, The guy they're towing up the hill is the one they should be worried about. Andy will be in yellow tonight, but Cadel may well wear it tomorrow.

I think Brothers Schleck are just waiting to attack closer to the finish; they know they can't go full gas for 4K.

It's all going to come down to the wire, ITT tomorrow. We will find out whether 1 min advantage Andy has over Evans is sufficient.

Fantastic stage today. Chapeau to Contador for giving it a go, but Evans must now be in a position to win.

Great stage but race radio dulled it a bit. (Voeckler for podium!)

Wow. Did Cadel get a gap on Andy and Frank, or did they get the same time? Was hard to tell from the TV finish (and then I had to go back to work).

great to see Roland take the stage, truly deserved.
Sure Andy rode a good time trial last year but I don't think he can
hold off Cadel.
Last year Andy had 4'43 on Cadel in the final TT. I don't recall the details
of the race but I don't think Cadel put much effort into it knowing his tour
was over.
This tour is now Cadel's to lose. and unless Andy crashes and burns on the road
tomorrow I don't think Alberto can put enough time into him atmo.

Interview afterwards they asked Andy what he said to Cadel and he was all innocent saying he asked him why he wasn't doing part of the work...gee I wonder why lol.

Looks like two Schlecks and Evans on the podium on Paris. Only question is their respective positions.

Loved the short mountain stage. Lots of fun and action packed. They should do one like this next year. Two brutal climbs is enough to shake things up and with such a short stage guys are willing to put in attacks.

Schlecks needed more time on Evans, but it didn't look like they had the legs to put in a bunch of attacks today. Evans has been surprisingly strong and very consistent. I hope he pulls through tomorrow. If not, I don't think it would be unfair to say he choked it away.

Because he's a better time trialer?

It would be fair to say that, or it would be unfair to say that?

Awesome stage! I hope Cadel can grab yellow tomorrow. Andy earned his spot over Contador this year, but Frank pretty much got a free ride onto the podium, having spent the whole tour following wheels. I really wish Voeckler could have been there instead, he earned it, but so it goes!

Time to start riding my bike again I suppose?
