Not today i dont, HTC and Omega have taken nothing out of this tour, so they will be pushing hard, but Garmin are pushing extra hard, i hope Hushovd dont do it cause i was going to put him in with my other transfer, was kinda hoping he was saving for the TT

Got Rojas in top 10, 1,2,5,8,9 in the GC, waiting on 11-20 at the line. Looks like an okay day. Movistar made a brilliant move on the last climb by pushing the pace to drop a load of sprinters - another note on the list of 'ways to stop Cav winning', perhaps.

Gkam,

Had a ride in beautiful weather earlier, until there were 3 miles to go and a thunderstorm hit Phbbbbt! Phbbbbt! Soaked and desperately trying to get my shoes dry for tomorrow.

And I didn't do that well on the stage. Good to see Swifty and Stannard up there though, I tend to cheer on the Brits ahead of the riders I've picked.

Good day here.
1, 5, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18 on stage, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 9 in GC. Erred in taking out Bakelandts for Caruso, but otherwise a good scoring day.

Scores are updated, people. I am pretending to be Dave today, he is off at Mountain Mayhem. The latter will be provided by on-and-off torrential rain, no doubt...
