    Don’t write Armstrong off yet – he just got stronger and stronger according to the CW report as he completed the Giro – could be the same here and I still think he is Bruyneel’s man for Yellow until Contador proves he’s not

    unbelieveable from wiggins… great to see. can he sustain this for the whole tour? i wouldn;t bet against it and certainly hope he can! having heard what vaughters said about his power o/p he must be on fire! certainly good news for vandevelde at least…

    lance won;t mind that attack from contador. he’s kept his powder dry for another day having made 19 easy seconds on monday, but it sure was impressive riding from alberto…
