They left one out, though -
"He's shattered like a pane of glass!"
Great ride today by Cancellara.
Also four great times for Team Astana. Contador, Kloden, Levi and Lance.
Stage one is in the books..twenty more to go.
Who saw today's stage? Fantastic break by Columbia into the crosswinds. A really fun last 20 miles considering it was shaping up like a typical flat stage sprint finish all day. Good to see Lance on the ball and accelerating with the break. Also loved seeing "Big" George Hincapie doing the dirty work that he always does so well. And Cavendish is a beast of a sprinter.
It was a great stage this morning. :yes:
I'm kicking myself for not selecting Cavendish for my Tour Fantasy Squad. I so wanted 'The God of Thunder' to beat the 'Fastest Man on Two Wheels today, but sadly it didn't happen.
Going to sleep early tonight so I can get up and watch the TTT live.
the TTT was awesome
cancellara and armstrong are now tied for first
I still think Lance Armstrong will bury the field in the highlands.
Stage 7 into the Pyrenees...and Cancellara just cracked. Astana is pacing the peloton and the Tour will have a new Yellow jersey wearer.
Love the mountain stages.
Lance always gets the lead in the mountains
Contador just made a play for the jersey..will he make up the 19 seconds between him and Lance?
Contador just crossed the line..tick tock tick tock here comes Lance.
Nocentini grabs yellow. Contador in 2nd 6 seconds behind, and Armstrong in 3rd, 8 seconds back.
Will comment on this after I watch it on Tivo with a cold beer after work. Man I cannot wait.
