reckon we'll see several attacks. Bertie will, to assert his dominance, Lance might. He's got nowt to lose. Bearly looking at top 10 GC at the minute. Baso and Sastre could as well as they're well down. In fact the only one who'll be content to sit tight and not attack is cuddles.

From Eurosport a few minutes ago as they rode past a bagpipe player on their way to the first climb.

What's the difference between a trampoline and a bagpipe?

You have to take off your shoes to jump on a trampoline!!

Armstrong down a minute on the GC leaders - Wiggins doing well staying with Contador. Could be Bertie's day fro pulling back time on GC

Excuse the (silly) question, why doesn't Armstrong let Kloden, Brakovij and Horner go on at their own pace, if they can go more quickly.

Probably because Armstrong was clinging to the forlorn hope that there may be a crash in the peloton and he might be able to get back up.

Didn't happen today - shame to see Wiggins drop 60 secs though.

Yes, a shame. Although it does mark him as not a contender for the top 10. If you cannot keep with the A team; Contador, Schlek, Evans et al you really do not have a hope of making the upper ranking of the Tour.

Not good for wiggins :biggrin:

Wiggins seemed devastated in the post-race interview!
Probably because he was riding really well earlier and seemed to have things under control. Either the feeding strategy was wrong, or he just hasn't got it.
being 6'3 he is going to find it hard to win the climbers war as weight will always be against him.
What a great stage (apart from wiggo being dropped).

I really do feel sorry for Lance though
