I think it was Paul, but it may have been Phil. The lead group was on the Alpe d'Huez, and we heard the following:

"They're going after Lance like an automatic rifle. Reload and bang bang bang! Attack after attack."
Race annoucing is definitely an art and a skilleschelon

that not many folks have...we just lost a racer/announcer dude this year and the races where he would normally have announced at were entertaining and stimulating...he died in a bike/car accident and the races this year were quite boring to say the least.

The camera was on Simoni as he was getting gapped on a climb. Phil said something like 'his fitness might not be what he wants it to be, but it's not his ego that won't take a beating'.
