Steephill says sprinter party. Any dissenters?

As far as I can guess Columbia will force a sprint so Greipel can get maximum points to ensure that can't accidently get the green jersey while fighting for overall. It'll be interesting to see if Liquigas will go all out again in the final to set up Benatti or are they starting to get disheartened by the Columbia juggernaut.

Has anyone heard how Dean pulled up after his boy meets tarmac incident?
Most people's signatures are a stupid waste of time, just like this one.

Could be the break of the day. Who is going to catch them? Columbia again, and Liquigas who have noticed that Bennati doesn't have it?

In a two-up sprint Maaskant would win, but they'll be caught
