Seems it was never Seeldrayers pulling, but Facci. That's even stranger - why work hard for a group if your captain is behind it? They have probably given up the white jersey then.
 
Unbelievable tactics by Cervelo, but Bertagnolli deserves the win imho.

It was funny how the Belgian commentators were recommending Pauwels to wheelsuck Bertagnolli, all happy. Then when the tables turned and he had to wait they went ballistic. Not that I don't agree with them ;)

What was Cervelo thinking about? a spare bike for Sastre in case of a flat tire? but then trying to chase down the winner os the stage? That did not make any sense at all.

On another forum they are saying that Pauwels was ordered to drop all the way back to the MR group but he refused. The stories about this ought to be good. :)

It might make a difference tomorrow.

Basso sacrificed himself to soften some of the contenders? Sastre worked and got nervous, DDL looked like he suffered but then attacked, Menchov responded, and I think LL had to claw his way back by himself. Everybody worked except Pellizotti.
 
Our swedish commentators would like to see UCI fine the Cervelo DS.. probably for tarninishing the image of cycling :). Even if they don't have a TV in the car, someone in the team must watch the race on TV. I guess they have a cell phone in the car at least.

Anyway, happy dinner tonight at Cervelo.

DDL is hard to read. He always looks intensely focused and usually like he is working hard.

Menchov looks so strong and composed.

We saw definite weakness of Leipheimer. He should lose time on tomorrows final climb if the big boys decide to put the hurt on each other.
