    Was that a random drug tester Contador just smacked?

    The hide of Andy Schleck to ask Evans to help out.

    Well they're always coming up with new unexpected times to test people but this is a little extreme.

    I know! The commentators pointed it out why on earth would he help them when he's outnumbered 2-1 and especially given the hard work Franks used from Cadel.

    Cadel has done what he needed to today. Game on for the time trial. Hope he's good enough.

    Shame Frank Schleck managed to get back to Andy and Cadel before the finish.

    1 minute or so down on the Schlecks going into the TT, he should be ok. But that is a very big SHOULD. Anything can happen on the day!

    Massive, massive ride from Cadel today. Jeez he showed some ticker and didn't panic when Contador took off and then the issue with the bike. Bloody hell I hope he has the ride of his life tomorrow and wins the time trial.

    I havent forgotton how well Andy went on the TT last year against Contodor when he rode out of his skull and came close so I'm not counting Evans home till he really does get over the line.

    This is gonna be awesome, surely going to end as one of the closest tours ever.

    Cadel was so good in the TTT, he dragged his team along whereas the Shlecks were passengers. However that yellow jersey will push Andy the whole way, i just don't know but i hope Cadel has it in him.

    This is one of the best tours I can remember. I think I'll be buying the DVD package to relive it over and over again.
