It's 167 kilometers to Ventoux. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it.

I will be screaming for Frank Saturday. Saxo needs to string that race out until the bottom of the climb. Just slaughter everyone.

I hear yea, I'll be doing the same:D

Beautiful stage. So what does everyone think; if Frank and Armstrong weren't behind, could Andy have ridden away from Contador? Vice versa? Regardless, it won't be the last time those two have a "discussion" on a mountain stage!

Wish there had have been a mountain stage time trial (like Alpe d'Huez a few years ago) to really see the difference between Andy and AC - maybe next year ...

Just want to give props to Andy and Frank. They made the tour interesting. And how endearing was AS at the end of today's stage confessing his sadness that the tour was ending? I coule just hear the collective, "awww."

I have to eat a little crow here. I thought Andy was overrated, I was wrong. Good ride by the kid, and a great attitude, I think I might actually become a fan.

It was great to watch Frank work his tail off for him too.
