According to Stage 14's results, Tyler should be able to get back the time he needs to get into pink on the next time trial - against Caucchioli and Savoldelli. Of course, that's easy for me to say .....

...for Tyler to make up a minute thirty on Salvoldelli on Saturday. I would have to say that Tyler is a much better time trialist, but 'Il Falco' is not too shabby either. Then when you factor in that Tyler seemed to have tired legs at the end of todays race while Salvoldelli was flying...it's going to be tough. I will surely be rooting for Mr. Hamilton, and if he pulls off a big time-trial win on the last day it will really be something. I think it's been a very good, competitive Giro so far even with the disqualification of the three great Italian climbers.

Hamilton looked rough at the end of today's stage and Salvodelli looked good. I'd put each of their chances of winning the overall at about 45%, and throw Caucchioli the other 10%. Afterall, he doesn't have as big a buffer over Hamilton as Salvodelli does but he did out time trial Salvodelli on stage 14. That would be something if he ended up winning it, but it would fit in with the way the whole Giro has gone!

Tyler Hamilton deserves the Most Courageous Rider Award. This has been one hell of a battle.
