|. . . will likely be the crux stage of this Tour. Tremendous amount of climbing which will take a lot out of the legs of those who are not 100%. Probably be a lot of attacking and setting of a fast temp. The heat continues. Still very tight at the top of GC. Spanish teams will be motivated to get a result.
Jan appeared to have covered every move with ease. I think the best strategy for Jan (and perhaps Vino) would be to keep the pressure on to crack Lance's team. They didn't look too good today. (I posted yesterday that I thought they went to hard in the ITT.) Lance was fortunate that there was a little flat at the top to today's climb. He may not be so lucky the next two days.
The final podium selection may come on Monday, but I think it will be largely determined by what happens tomorrow.

|Thank you CBS. Oh well, have to wait until tomorrow night and even then we won't get the full 3 hours OLN usually gives to mountain stages.|

|. . . I've been listening to the live audio from Eurosport. Dave Duffield kinda hard to take, but Sean Kelley's observations are worthwhile. I combine that with the live updates from the official Tour website.|

|I've been watching this for every stage. Fully LIVE coverage with noooooooo commercials. Amazing footage. I don't get OLN. But, with this link, I don't need too. No Kristen Gummmmmmm. No commercials. Give it a go. By the way, doesn't CBS stand for Crappy Broadcasting Station.|

|I tried to do this but I get "access denied". I went to the web site and it looks like I need to set up some type or userid and password. Unfortunately, I don't read Danish and can't figure out how to do this. Are you able to access this without a userid and password?|

|Hopefully Lance can pull it off. Unfortunately what we've seen so far is that Ullrich is getting stronger while LA is just barely holding on...|
