Hmm,as far as i know Piti doesn't quite like rainy weather.:D
I remember him last year losing some 3 mins on a flat rain-soaked stage(well,mostly because of his stupidity to go down to the car and get a coat).

Could be Sammy Sanchez' day or,why not,we could see a stage win from Mosquera,who said a couple of days ago he performs better when the temperatures are low.;)

Think Tommy D recovered from the stomach virus or he'll sink even more today?

So, here we are. Valverde promised not to attack before today. So clearly he'll attack today.....right?

That, or on thursday. There aren't any mountain stages left beside these two.

Friday - September 18th. Is that the stage you mean?
The Navacerrada, twice and another first cat?

I wouldn't be surprised to see Valverde attack, in the final 400 metres, on Thursday, though.
That Avila finish and juicy bonus seconds....

isnt that rather uncadel like behaviour?
Have to say, he did a lot of attacking of Valverde, during the Dauphine....
...with about the same result.:eek:

Cadel has attacked plenty of times in races. The fact that he doesn't attack is one of the biggest myths in cycling.

Cadel quite simply has to go on the attack.
If he has the legs, I could see him give it a go....But I won't get my hopes up.:(

Still pretty close for the top 5 riders, anyone could have a shocker and anyone could have the best day of racing in their lives, as we have all seen happen many times in a GT.

last 10 kms should be epic.
some tough sections in that climb.

Tondo didn't start today apparently. Must say a dissapointing vuelta for him.

again this stream isn't working for me (here in aus). Didn't work friday either.
It worked for me last night but not the night before.
I use the link that has the detached player as the other one didn't work for me either.
