Come on T-A, let's see some fireworks. Paris-Nice was dull as dishwater today, it's up to you to restore my faith in the sport.

Boonen is still in the pack I see, and I assume Eddy Bos is too, has Farrar been sighted?

Boonen got the perfect lead-out from the Liquigas train, it was too easy for him in the end.

McEwen in fourth, nice ride from him.

I hope there is some actual racing somewhere tomorrow.

tomorrow is a chane the sprinters will have their way again. Though I think the san baronto (about 15km from the end) will be a lil much for some of them.

How about Martens? Impressive sprint, didn't really expect him there.

I imagine it will be enough to shell Cav, with the way he has been going. I hope Farrar and EBH can get up in the mix with Boonen and Bennati and make it a bit more interesting.

indeed impressive (where is friere?). Though I remember him riding well before the vuelta last year where he podium a few times. He is capable of a good sprint, but this was very impressive and unexpected. good ride, especially considering where he started his sprint from. :)

As a Rabo fan, you should be able to discern that this wasn't Freire.

Paul Martens singlehandedly led Freire to a stage win in the Ruta del Sol, bringing him all the way from 20th position to the front within a hundred meters. He could have won that stage himself, because frankly he looked stronger than Freire.
