    Wow, great stage. I feel for Contador, he was written off after the previous stage, then put everything on the line this stage and it almost payed off.

    Cadel has done it by himself and I fucking hope
    he wins because he deserves it

    Things are looking good for Cadel, sorry for the little input last night, I was coming to grips with how amazing this years tour has been. Glad to see Contador make his move and prove that he is the strongest climber once again, unfortunately he left it too late and I doubt he will be in contention tonight. Cadel Evans is perfectly placed, I said if it was around a minute Evans would fancy himself, and that's exactly what the gap is looking like. We all know what they say about the yellow jersey, and witnessed how it lifted Voeckler, I think Andy will ride himself into the ground tonight but may prove to be one step too far. Frank once again carried last night, he doesn't seem to be doing an awful lot and I can't see him keeping any lead whatsoever on Cadel or challenging Andy tonight.

    Been really impressed with Cunego, although he also has abit too much time to make up, as too does Voeckler and Sanchez. After tonight we will probably see the order being; Evans, A.Schleck, Voeckler, Cunego, F.Schleck, Contador, Sanchez.

    20K Aus seems almost a bargain for such a machine. Amazing bit of kit.

    Only 10k Aussie right? Im pretty sure he says 12k USD

    Definitely looks worth every penny

    Fark - they copied Timmsy's bike!

    Love the mega german nerd who can't conceive of someone who doesn't intimately understand bike engineering

    I love the fact that it's completely impractical for anything other than going flat out in a time trial. Totally precision engineered for one purpose only. It really appeals to a geek like me.

    I have secretly been testing for him. Sure thing tonight.

    Yeah, pretty much how I ride - flat out.

    The hell just happened to Contador at the start.

    Voeckler starting, then Cadel, then Frank, then Andy.

    I'm nervous

    Evans gains 36 sec on Schleck at 15km mark..

    He's already second fastest of all at that mark, amazing!
