How much time do you think some of these guys will take out of the less competitive time trial riders during a 50K stage?

Botero is 3 1/2 min off Rumsas' podium spot - should Rumsas worry? Heras only has a minute to spare to Levi and a lot of the middle ground is all lumped within a few minutes.

Do you think someone like Basso or Moncoutie will be able to climb into a top 10?

good TTers can take minutes off bad ones in a 50 K. Botero may be able to jump to 3rd. Also watch for Leipheimer to have a good day as well. I'm not too sure about Basso or Moncoutie's previous TT's. A good # of the top ten are good TTers so it may be tough. There is less than 2 minutes separating 5th thru 9th so IMHO this is where the positionjumps in the GC are going to take place.
