figured I'd just get it posted now. sorry for any confusion.
 
This will confuse people.... Way to go.

In future you could wait until Stage x is finished before posting the thread for Stage (x+1). Also how much sense does it make to discuss this stage anyway when the most decisive stage of the first week is tomorrow?

Too bad really, I was looking forward to Hushovd attacking in the mountains :D

Hope is eternal.

A shame yesterday's sprint was neutralized, otherwise Thor would sit very, very comfortably (instead of only very comfortably).

three straight stages of flat tedium coming up, with the HTC train of tedium pulling back a non-threatening break which never gets far enough up the road to ever seem threatening.

It might be more of a breakaway, with the peloton content to rest a bit. Cavendish and company did enough work today in effort to keep their GC's close.

Obviously, geography hates cycling.
not if they went the other way round, from paris roubaix section to liege bastogne liege section. would have been cool if they had done paris roubaix cobbles, then next day flanders cobbled hills, then next day wallone hills. oh well. Maybe next time (ie 6 years from now)

as for the stage,last year the flattest stage was won by voeckler so break could succeed. and remember that epic arashiro + 2 others breakaway in giro. The trains could mess it up. Doubt it though since this is the tour.

and nicholas roche said something today about how things always come in 3s and he was worried that since he crashed 2 days in a row he might crash today as well. Well cav has crashed last 2 sprints so he could make it interesting once again.

Patrick Smith (Aus journalist)has said that the bike riders at the tour de france need to ride trikes as they can't stay up properley and it is the most overrated sporting event in the world.

That guy is a muppet.

1/100 things he says may be insightful but it all gets lost in his mindless drivel anyway.

he's a tool. you could say AFL players need to learn to kick goals properley as over the 150 years they have played, it has not really improved.
