I'm sure when you wake up you'll have a smiley which expresses your contrition rather than your smug incorrectness.

I think people have worked out your best bet is to win by a few seconds on the final climb rathering than using energy at this stage.

Grrrr i just hate Sky, hopefully this means that Radioshack, EE, and Blanco have lots of guys fresh to go crazy on the final ascent.

It was always going to be a lame 1st time over, none of the GC guys were going to commit suicide by going for the win on the first ascent (surprisingly not even Machado, maybe he has learned).
