And Cav was geared too low but still pulled it off.

Just amazing:
1. The best there ever was
2. Cav
3. The Badger

That's a stellar career right there, and add rainbow stripes, and serene maturity. Chapeau Mark.

OK, what wasn't great about it?
Terrific sprint finishes, great scenery, decent weather, and except for Alberto's and Porte's rotten luck, the contenders will be at full strength for the real racing to come. What's not to like?

ok, never seen that before. That's up there with the OGE bus getting stuck at the finish line. Fitting end to a sleeper of a stage.

ASO must have been packing up the route for tomorrow since the racing was done.

Once the break past, the Kite so no reason for standing around, so it didn't.

The overall has been a snooze fest so far, huge contrast w Giro.

Fortunately the scenery is great and the sidestories are pretty descent.

--well I think this race has the potential to be one of the best if Contador recovers and gets back into things. For that to happen he's goiing to have to pull a Landis kind of flier on one of these stages. Dont know if he'll do it on one of these uphill finishes over the next couple of days - I doubt it. But stage 15 has his name on it. 2 big climbs and downhiull to finish. He might just hang back and even lose a little time til then (so that everyone really thinks hes out of it) and then take a stab from a long way back (be cool if Sagan or Nibali went with him too.) Froome will be tired from his big show on the Ventoux and the others by then might be too worried about protecting their leads to risk it and they could let him go. If that happened and Berto got the yellow - it would rank as a tremendous comeback and one of the better tdfs in a long time.

stonz, Contador couldn't have asked for the first real challenge to play out better than it did for his sorry condition. A snooze-fest is just what the doctor ordered. I hope he can survive tomorrow's shark's teeth.

Hard to make a move with so many Skybots around.

Relative to Giro team strength is what's suffocating battle for overall.

Team sizes need to go down.
