The final day and some hills, if what I've read is correct. I think it's unlikely that Levi will be relieved of the Yellow jersey but I will be happy of David Millar can hold onto second place. The weather is again foul with riders well wrapped up against the cold and wet, not nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just over 40km to go the breakaway of 10 is 1.50 away from the peloton but contains no danger to GC dont see it as plain sailing as they will likely be wound in on that long finish of 6 x 5 mile circuits. Millar is gonna need a lucky break when the group gets caught to get away and stay away.

Hmm. Well Slipstream were nowhere on the last day after all that. Of the Brits, a good second for Millar overall, and Cavendish showed some of the form we'll be expecting from him for later in the season even if he didn't get a win. Anyone know what happened to Wiggins - I know he dropped out of Stage 6, but any idea why?

He was probably one of thirteen to abandon the stage due to sickness caused by a virus in the peloton,according to a race report in the Daily Peloton,but strangely cyclingnews only list 2DNF's in the stage results.

Missed the end of the race do to work but it was good to see Hincapie get one and Cavendish in the hunt as well. With David Millar second along with Christian Vandevelde third, Slipstream haven't done so bad either!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
