Greatest 45 mins of riding i have ever seen! Now can the posties protect the yellow jersey until we reach Madrid?? I doubt it.

i was surprised that sevilla didn't lose as much time as i thought he would. from the way it looked early, i thought he was gonna be in freefall.

in fact, the time gaps as a whole were a lot closer than i expected, at least among the contenders.

is diluca this tour's rumsas? what a ride he put in today.
I wouldn't say any pro isn't...Wayne

doping but Di Luca has been building up to bigger and bigger results for a few years now since he turned pro and he's still young. I think he and Basso will be the two of the best cyclist in the world within another couple of years.

than we expect, mainly because Paul and Phil are so gradiose in their call that we expect (fill in the name) to be HOURS back, given the hyperbole heaped on the leader.

What pinheads.
well, given that sevilla lost 7 minutes the last time they climbedrufus

and there was something like 2 and 4 minute gaps from the winner, and the conditions yesterday, i think a lot of riders had really good climbs yesterday.
