The Pyranean stages were useless and boring! How can a major part of the race go by with no real changes in GC? Ok, so Canc lost the yellow, we knew that was coming. Contador makes up 19 seconds. Other than that, the entire peloton rides tempo over 6 mountains in the Pyranees! This is terrible course set up by the Tour! 70 km to the finish of the stages basically nuetralized all the mountains. It seems they want the race to be all together to the Annency TT and the Ventoux will be a free for all. IMHO, a boring way to make a race. Now we get a week of Cavendish stage wins.......boring!
