this is what makes Alberto so special. He can't finish a stage race without a win even if he says he isn't in top form!! Whatever happened to hushovd?? I want to see him in roubaix.

contador was invited too for an interview.
OMG Jens that is probably the best highlights package ive seen of any cycling race. Amazing that the live channels have such **** footage but fox sports have are recording it all in hd.

And instead of 2 commentators droning on over footage of 2 breakaway guys, they have a live studio where the guys are really excited about the race, bringing in the governor, interviewing the winners en directo, and saying things like "this is a historic day for Latin American cycling"

It's starting to look bad for Thor. And while I don't like his riding style it's a shame he's at this level right now. Cq-team wise it's actually good for me, as I haven't picked him, so I wouldn't mind him having another bad season. :D But he'll probably turn out to be fine when PR comes around.
 
Stage 7:



GC recap:

1 Daniel Diaz (Arg) San Luis Somos Todos 20:37:28
2 Tejay van Garderen (USA) BMC Racing Team 0:00:33
3 Alex Diniz (Bra) Funvic Brasilinvest 0:00:39
4 Alberto Contador (Esp) Team Saxo-Tinkoff 0:01:02
5 Jurgen Van Den Broeck (Bel) Lotto Belisol 0:01:47
6 Mauro Santambrogio (Ita) Vini Fantini-Selle Italia 0:02:29
7 Miguel Angel Rubiano (Col) Androni Giocattoli 0:02:34
8 Javier Acevedo (Col) Jamis-Hagens Berman 0:03:00
9 Bart De Clercq (Bel) Lotto Belisol 0:03:14
10 Vincenzo Nibali (Ita) Astana Pro Team 0:03:17

Not a bad circuit to finish the race with. Could be difficult to control, if raced seriously. Six seconds separate TJ and Diniz. Anybody with info on the little kicker in the end?

that's what I said. in many countries in south-south america broadcast cycling with high production values, but when local station has to give live images it sucks. in brazil and uruguay they broadcast on big national channel and have heli's and everything

And while the other TJ has just won a world tour stage race. This TJ still hasn't won any stage-race at the professionals, whilst he is by all standards a far superior stage-racer.

Cycling is funny sometimes
The only funny thing is that TDU is World Tour.
