Robbie McEwen took the lead by one point (I think) today, and Zabel isn't far behind. What a great Tour, with tight races in both the Yellow & Green jerseys.

This also means that nobody is getting away from the peloton on Sunday. The sprinter teams are going to blister the track and hunt down anybody and everybody that tries to attack. Tomorrow is the day to decide the GC winner!!
Let's put a seismometer by the Champs Elysées ...Humma Hah

... If I recall, the Champs Elysées is paved with cobblestones, and tends to be a bit rough for racing. I imagine a peloton in hot pursuit of an attack would be thunderous ... and probably quite a bit of fun to watch provided nobody gets hurt.

Break out the cyclocross tires, boys, and have at it!

...a fantastic finish to a fantastic Tour. The French could not have asked for more for the 100th anniversary. And thank the maker I got OLN last month!
