Thanks to David for putting together a live race chat site. Hopefully we can get a bunch of people to click on his bikechatter link and join us for Leige.
thoughts on the race:
Cadel's dig just before the Mur probably cost him the podium and possibly the win. His Mur attack was lacking a bit and might have been a tad early. But at least Cadel is an animator in these races.
You never even saw Rebellin at the front until when it counted - smart racing, classy rider. Have to admit, I wasn't sure he still had it in himself the win.
I think A Schleck will be a real danger man on Sunday as I think the longer climbs will suit him.
Some other contenders looked strong but blew their load with their breakaway before the Mur - Kroon, Scarponi, Kreuz, Pfann, Rodriguez. They were toast when the climb came.
I love that Fleche finish!
