All but one. LA should show some class and admit he isn't going to do it and throw in his hat and fetch some water bottles......I don't think he will, but here is to hoping....

Sure, a short time trial will do that. That being said, neither Kloden, Levi or Lance will be stronger in the mountains. Contador is the best opportunity to win.

By far the best chance. None of those 3 is in his league.

Menchov is obviously cooked after the Giro. He should do what sprinters do: Drop out and prepare for the Vuelta. :)

I was hoping for more from him and Gesink didn't look too hot either.
 
Seems like most people that rode well in teh giro had disappointing or really bad runs today. It might not mean that much for the race as a whole though. It could be a lack of competition that's part of it. Most of them haven't ridden any races at all since the Giro.

Thinking Klodiburg is capable of hanging with AC in the mountains is sweet, but far from realistic.

Klodi is close but he is so unpredictable. He did a great time trial earlier in the season and then got killed in the mountains. He is unpredictable. He looks like he is in great form.

Time to the top of the hill might be the best indicator of what is to come.

Very much so it would appear.

Yes, I agree that AC has the best opportunity. But the infighting surely won't end after today's results.
