We've not seen a ride like this in years.
Fantastic stuff! Looks like he was saving himself for this stage. Great team tactics too - not all down to him but wow, what a ride!

Of course, as a lone voice (well, along with VeloCity) in sticking up for Andy throughout, it gives me no extra pleasure at all in joining you all in saying 'Chapeau'.

Never thought I'd say it but Andy rode like a champion today. If not for the ride of voekler, andy would be rider of the day.

Shame they brought him back to 2 in the end. It was a brave effort, but not enough.

Even if they brought him back, it was still an impressive performance

Heh this is awesome. I´m sure there will still be haters, but today he made history.

Normally he would have Contador with him attacking, but Contador obviously wasn´t good.

Great ride by Andy. 10000+´s from me, because this is what I´ve been hoping for.
