If green wasnt a goal, he wouldnt have the green shoes, green sunglasses, and other green garbage to go with the jersey.
It's for just in case he wins....you don't want your outfit to clash with your shoes...;)

Arvesen finished yesterday with a double break of the collarbone, for which feat I award him the 'Jens Voigt Perpetual Suffering Trophy'.

What is Farrar like in a uphill finish?
He was close (without looking likely) yesterday after a slight mistake about 150m-200m from memory???
Not grat in my opinion. On a flat finish he might be in the top three best at the moment, but on an uphill maybe top ten at best.

Hi. I'm new to the forum. I just have a question regarding the live coverage and I quote

14:32 CEST (123km remaining from 192km)

If Mark Cavendish can win today in Saint-Fargeau he will equal Barry Hoban's record of eight Tour de France stage wins. While Barry spread his wins across the period of 1967 and 1975, Cavendish will have equalled the feat in the space of two years.

Um, what do they mean by 8 TdF stage wins being a record? Didn't Lance Armstrong do much better? I'm confused.

Just switched on Eurosport a few minutes ago, Contador back at Astana car with no team mates, a few minutes later Armstrong being paced back up by Popo + Rast..what gives. Even Sean Kelly caled the race "Boring"

Yeah but we have had it at 8:30 WST every night. 6:00 WST on weekends?
Maybe they stuffed up or no ratings?

I Hate This Backward State, what will we get next clean drinking water? Electricity? :D

top 8 at most in a group sprint.
Maybe boonen, if he can get his team on a line
Your having a laugh! You can't blame his team.
Boonen should make a left turn and ride home, he should be lying on a sofa.

I somehow foolishly hoped that Cav and Thor might want to at least contest the sprint points available, but no......blinding tedium....:(

One minute watching the 4 man breakaway of yesterday then cut within a second to todays 2 man break (kinda freaked me out)

Ah don't worry - there's still the 1 point on offer for 3rd over the Cat 4 climb to come! Egoi Martinez went for it at the first one - not sure if he went over unchallenged. The suspense is killing me...
