WOAH what a stage, after almost 3 weeks, what a battle

So di Luca picks up 8s, reducing Menchov's lead to 26-8= 18s. Now tomorrow's stage could be a perfect stage for di luca to win the sprint... Can he take MR tomorrow, and go in the TT with a 2s advantage?

Kudos to both Di Luca for trying and Menchov for staying with him each time DDL attacked.

Who was it that tipped Sastre for the win on Vesuvius over 10 days ago?:rolleyes:

Never seen such wheel sucking ever before--even if it's to win.

This make Leipheimer and Evans look like Spanish bullfighters, the tip of the spear.

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.

Menchov was tired as hell so he used all his stength to stay with all the attacks. He should be commended for being able to follow all those attacks and not attacked for not being stylish...If anything is DISGRACEFUL then it's posts like that...

No one should ever criticize Levi or Evans after this. No one. Not fair.

Di Luca's attacks were weak. He no longer has the acceleration to get even a temporary gap.

Well, you can only give what you have.
Kudos to Seeldrayers as well, he kept the Maglia Bianca.
