Sorry for the delay in posting here, I haven't had a chance to put anything up for a few days.
Just off the top of my head, I was mightily impressed by the strategic riding of Sanchez the other day in those last 2 km. He used his head along with his body and boy did he deserve that win.
I'm very curious about the tension level in the Astana bus these days. Contador certainly made a statement with that lone attack. He says it was good for the whole team, Armstrong said it wasn't in the plan. I think Susie B said it best when she asked, "Is the Spanish word for team 'I'?" I think it showed incredible class on Lance's part to not go after him. Johan always said that the team leader would be determined on the road and that's exactly what's going to happen.
I'm afraid I'm going to be AWOL again for a few days as I take the kids up to a friend's cottage. I'll be back on Friday and my PVR is locked and loaded to tape the next three stages.
Looking forward to chatting again at the end of the week. Take care!
