Oh cmon, Westra alone is better than whole Skil. Hoogerland idem, and then I haven't even named Bozic, Leukemans etc...
Yes indeed. How could I be so naive in thinking that a whole team has as much talent, endurance and passion as lieuwe westra in the pinky toe of his left (his weakest) foot.

That skil even pays these amateurs!

It's great to see Bozic get the win for Vacansoleil, a well earned and deserved win:cool:
I agree, I always have my favorites on who I want to win, but am glad when a smaller team gets one. A win like this for a smaller team is huge.

Basso, valverde, sanchez and Evans were sharp today. They didn't lose time. Gesink and mosquera lost 9 and fuglsang 6s.
 
Another near miss for Farrar. It's my opinion that he will show over the next few years that he is a better classics rider than he is a pure field sprinter. He's got the strength but he seems to lack the snap of a pure sprinter.

Farrar's jersey

From the picture of today's stage, it appears that Tyler was wearing a green jersey, but he's not leading the points competition. Does anybody know what the jersey is and why he is wearing it today instead of the usual Garmin kit?

It was the points jersey. Greipel was wearing gold for being the race leader. Boonen chose to wear the national champion jersey over the green (since he was not the true leader) so it fell to Tyler in 3rd position.

What a great stage! Attacks going everywhere and Bozic comes up with the upset. Loving la vuelata at the moment and hope it gets better.

Maybe Cadel got bored and decided to have some interval training for tomorrow's ITT.
It was gilbert who attacked , not evans. if your talking about the sprint then i dunno why he was getting involved but it was funny to see him beat griepel

IMO evans wants to win the vuelta, but my saying he has the worlds in mind he aputs less pressure on himself and less media expectation, which again helps with the pressure.

I think Evans will be the best of the GCrs on saturday, but I'm not so sure he will survive in the mountains, we'll see...
Maybe he has learnt from the tour crosswinds to stay up the front. Really happy vancosoleil, a much deserved win for the team.

I meant the sprint.

Evans > Griepel ftw.
