Dare We Guess?


Dare We Guess? Ok. So last night was on paper the stage that everyone expected — a breakaway that was difficult to get into, but stayed away once established. And yet it was hardly a predictable result, with a shake-up of the GC, another win to Garmin and Thor, and a request from the Schlecks that every stage please be an uphill time trial, or at worst an uphill two man teams time trial.

Contador is far from gone, Cadel is looking very good, the Schlecks are not on top of their game (their riding game that is — they can complain with the best of them…)
