The Shack needed that one.

Makes you wish over the last few years that Paulinho got more chances to go on breaks on stages like this instead of being a water carrier.

Pretty easily the biggest result of his career.
 
Can anybody explain to me what happened?

I was watching Devenyns solo in front and then a storm started here, forcing me to shut all windows and door and miss a few kilometers of the race.
And all of a sudden Paulinho and Kiriyenka were in front?

Did Devenyns flat, park or crash?

He parked.

We aim to please. It's all in fun.........well most of it.
Here's another.
How fitting that the Shack should win the most boring stage of the Tour.

Take away from it all you want, Paulinho won the stage, end of story.

Cav took the field sprint easily, so why didn't he bother going for the intermediate sprint? Not the greatest tactics from HTC today if they really are still after the green jersey.

The Shack ruins everyones day on CN Forums. Priceless!!!!

On the contrary, I'm quietly enjoying they win one when most of the Shack fans could no longer be bothered to log on. Will be busy later tonight no doubt, when some of them will be back with a vengeance.

And I don't mind Paulinho winning one, if it had to be one of them.

The Shack takes their FOURTH road-race stage win of the year. Truly they are a powerhouse of professional cycling.

While not superb... teams without sprinters often get few stage wins. They have 5 if one were to count the Tour of the Gila (not that you should).

Astana has 7 (4 by Contador)
Euskaltel has 6
Rabbo has 5-6 that didn't come from sprinters.


Overall the stage win isn't a big help for Radioshack. It's nice... but they are a GC team... they need Levi to make the podium to truly save their tour. Stage wins make the tour for sprint teams and stage hunting teams. It might save it from being a total disaster... but it won't make it anything close to a success.

*edit* For comparison, the 2003 Postal squad had 8 stage wins all season... and won the GC of 5 races. It's the GC finish that matters for a team like them.
