Who else would like to see Roberto kick some ass and win a stage and move up to 4th in the gc? I would.

I would, but he has to bank an awful lot of time tomorrow and Friday if he wants 4th. Azevedo, Gonzalez de Galdeano, and Botero are all very good time trialists who will take minutes out of Heras in the final time trial.

he has a job to do.

We're still in the mountains and it's his job to protect/lead Lance. He'd need to make up about 5 1/2 minutes to get into third place, and there are a lot of riders in between him and that position.

I'd love to see Heras get a stage win. He sure as hell deserves it after the work he's done. But, unless it is him and Lance alone at the end, I don't see it happening.

I think the last 2 days Heras has been saving a little for tomorrow. It may be the best opp for a stage as everyone has gotta be dying and he may have some left. No podium but watch for a possible place or two rise. Between 5th and 9th there is less than 2 minutes so expect some shifts. Keep an eye on Levi, he seems to get stronger as these things go on and is a good TT'r.
