    No change in green or yellow. G didn’t actually lose *that* much time and he got the Combativity prize for his efforts.

    What is the combativity prize? Who votes for it?

    Combativity prize is the prize for the most aggressive/attacking rider. It’s a few hundred euros and you wear a pretty red number for the next stage.
    Voted for by the race judges/Commissaires.

    For people who attack lots and get into breakaways etc. Basically the hardest rider of the day. Judges/referee I guess.

    I wish the Schlekcs would spend LESS tiem looking over their bleeding shoulders, I really hope they don’t win, they are pathetic and wet (especially Andy). Ok to be fair Frank put in a good attack but only because his piddly wet brother “was feeling a bit poorl woo” …. argh! Cadel to win, definately not Contador or the Schlecks!

    Schleckts brothers played that out perfectly TBH. They knew that only way for Contador to beat them would to gun it with about 5 or 6 km to go. When that didn’t happen they knew Contador didn’t have it (today). They quite clearly discussed this and chose the 1 attack, let Contador chase then the other attack tactics. Worked out perfectly. They know in the long run Cadel will not challenge in the mountains. They may keep an eye on Basso but Tommy will not be in Yellow by next week.

    There doing not only a fantastic team game but also plan on winning the tour. The only difference being was that when Frank went away he didn’t pile on the speed like i think Andy will.
    Great stage today, Leopard Trek doing an amzing job at botom of Tourmalet, Gerant hustling really well and Europcar doing well protecting Tommy.
    Biggest problem being Radioshak falling apart (liepheimer was poor although i would love to see him attack on a climb instead of just following the leaders) and Contador’s Saxo Bank being absent. With this team he’ll surely not win the Tour

    Don’t right off Evans. He won’t blow the schlecks away in the mountains, but he is in great form and if he can hang in there close to them then he will take serious time out of them in the TT.
    He’s very much a factor in this tour.

    Indeed. If the Whining Wheelsucker (TM) can’t win this years Tour, he’ll never win one. In great form, as mentioned above.

    I love Cadel Evans, someone kick his dog and get him all squeaky

    Is it normal for the bus to have 80 odd riders in it?

    I think bertie wont be that good tbh as I dont think he expected to be here and will be tired from the Giro
    Has anyone won both in the same year in the modern era?

    Stephen Roche won the Tour the Giro and the Worlds in 87

    which reminds me roche junior is doing very well
