I got this awesome feed of cyclingfans.com today

My first language is french, so it was pretty cool to listen to the race like that. I'm used to Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen (who are great broadcasters themselves, always full of random information it seems), but these french commentators got alot more excited by the action. It made what would have been an ordinary stage, more captivating.

Bumping this one back up to the top, if anyone wants to discuss today's race. Its cool to see Roy back in the escape group. 50 or so to go, cant wait for the fireworks!

-edit: My mistake, doesnt look like Roy is in the escape group?

And now we see the difference twixt "le train bleu" and this Astana subset. These guys can't keep the pressure on for more than one climb, it seems. Granted, it's the "B" or "C" team

+ I would imagine that the guys arent in the same form they would be for the tour. Astana will be monstrous in july.

I'm watching the T-A at the minute (because Cav made it over the hills this time!) and I'm going to switch to the PN the moment they finish.

I think that is the first time I have seen anyone come round Mark Cavendish. Very impressive from Farrar.

Switching to P-N now, it looks like I'm not going to win that signed jersey. Cadel is nowhere to be seen.

I think Frank is going to hang on to contador's wheel and take the stage...
just as I say that contador has dropped him. Oh well. Looks like another boring 5k of solo Contador, just like the Giro and the Vuelta last year...

Contador is amazing, but echoing ulterior threads... Can he really be that good? I have no idea..
