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 Ive been hoping for.


I was a hater, but it was nothing personal. I was upset that he wasn't taking the Tour by the scruff of the neck and was riding like an undertaker.

Apparently it took Fracesco Moser slapping him around last night during a meeting and suddenly Andy is on the podium announcing "No Guts No Glory" after one of the best attacks ever.

Hats off to him.

I always figured he'd be good these 3 days but I was very impressed by his guts. He finally went all or nothing and hopefully it payed off. I can't wait for tomorrow if he can recover from today he'll end up in the yellow in Paris.

Damn poor guy, can't imagine what I'd do without my good old Sporza coverage. Although the last few minutes weren't exactly to write home about either, you'd think Andy lost 5 minutes in every TT he rode (while he's never lost more then 2 minutes on any GC rider in any TT in the Tour).

Today Andy Schleck earned my respect with his gutsy ride. Chapeau, sir. Chapeau. If he manages to win, it will be a WELL deserved victory. Still not the people's champ, though. :p

I hope this opened his eyes as to what kind of a career he could have if he put his guts to it.

Tremendous job by both AS and Cadel today. Worthy champions for sure.

I think AS gained a lot respect today.
