im starting to wonder if maybe menchov was the bull in the china shop..

I wouldn't say menchov's performance was a result from fatigue (from giro) I'd sooner suggest the fact he hasn't raced in over a month, made it hard for him to get any rhytm goin, that and i doubht he prepared very well for the stage 1 ITT, is the reason for his poor time.

There is chaos to come in the mountains this year i feel. I think by stage 7 he will be riding like his normal self, Should be an interesting stage. (edit, just realised you said today's stage, my bad )
the Rabo TTT should be interesting to. After yesterday I'm almost expecting Contador to be at least 2 mins ahead of all his (excluding his team mates, which should add an interesting Astana war aspect on stage 7 also) rivals. It might be a very good thing though (for us, the viewers), at the very least it will result in a very aggresive battle in the mountains
