Can Tyler Do it?HBPat

I am not too sure that he can make up 1:28 on the TT. I was cheering madly (strange at 8AM) when He broke Cadel yesterday but am nervouls that he won't be able to make up that much time on the TT. I shall be up early tomorrow.
I'd like to think so,TJeanloz

But realistically, it doesn't seem likely. We all know how much time he put on in the first TT- but it's a completely different game when your opponent gets to ride behind you, and knows exactly how much time he can afford to lose.

I know that is a lot of time but I think that he can do it. He put that much time on him in the first shorter TT. I am also curious what the final stage will be like because they will be close no matter what happens tomorrow. The final stage will be awesome.

No matter what the outcome of the TT is, the final stage will be largely ceremonial. No one will attack to try to get the Pink jersey back. Whoever has the lead after the TT will be the winner of the Giro. Although in this edition, you never know. . .
