DDL had a problem at BOTTOM of hill, and it's not getting any better. Something wrong.

Proviso: wrong! Maybe trying to fake out Menchov, al Lance with Ullrich in TDF one year.

But then his legs go again. Go figure.

I think you are right. Why would LPR let Astana set the pace otherwise? Astana has not shown itself capable of really punishing the top men.

He might wait til the last 2-3k to go out in a full sprint? Otherwise it's going too slow

I think that for the next 6 months, every time DiLuca turns around on the street, no matter what the people behind him are wearing, he will see pink.

Menchov has to learn that if he wants to be a CHAMPION, you can't just wheel suck your closest opponent.

There's something DISGRACEFUL about his style here. And 26 secs are not a lot. Wusslike bike riding.

Contador will take his cake: he's a CHAMPION. Menchov not yet, by a mile. Gotta learn still.
