Contador will be twice as hard to beat next year, Andy knows it too. All credit to Cadel, rode a measured race and kept himself in the right place at the right times. Single handedly won himself the tour two days ago chasing down the Schlecks, the TT was a foregone conclusion. Nevertheless, one of the best tours I've ever seen. Voeckler the most impressive for me, the man has a heart of a lion, Sanchez deserves his praise for attacking and Cavendish was never in doubt for the sprints. Can't wait to watch Cadel ride into Paris tonight Agree whole-hartedly with tigerland, this has set a new benchmark for individual sporting achievements. An Australian has won the tour de france!!!
