I guess because Evans is an Anglo, he's just a champion.Big Doopie said:winner: contadope (tweeted that he ate "different" -- more spanish beef?)
loser: schlecklet (tweeted that he'd been tested 3 times in 24 hours -- scared off a full refill which would have shown up against these three consecutive markers?)

Ask Carlos Barredo if "Tor" is clean.BullsFan22 said:For someone who had contemplated abandoning the TDF just a few days ago, Contador sure looked good today. Having said that, his face is still showing pain, and even though he attacked, Evans and Jesus (Voeckler) were still able to mark fairly well until Voeckler, for some reason, decided to watch the Schlecks. As far as the brothers are concerned, I still think they are the favourites. Their problem was the Luz Ardiden stage. They should have kept the pace going once they attacked the 2nd or 3rd time. One of them should be wearing yellow by now. Still three super tough stages to go, so they still have time to put time on Evans and Contador. Basso is the outsider for a podium, as I think Sanchez and Voeckler will crack in one of the next three stages. I don't know what Hushovd has been up to, but he just seems to get better by the day, and honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if we see him on the the attack again tomorrow.
I don't like Contador, but I must admit he's riding a smart race, at the right spot on the radar. When you compare team strength, the Leopards look like the weakest cats in the jungle. At this point you just bend over and enjoy it; it's the rolling WWF.luckyboy said:
Yep that's how it goes. I mean most people, those in the media too, seem to have forgotten Frank "I only sent a bank wire for 8000E and got nothing in return" Schleck.luckyboy said:
