Not much so to speak of at the moment

a group of 27 dangling off the front with about 10 seconds including chavanel, and of course noone from my team

Haha, fair enough, i gave it a little while after it started, and wasn't sure if you were coming on.

Usual suspects that have been in breaks all week trying to get across, will get interesting to see if any of the main guys try and go off on the decent, although i suspect its a bit far from the finish

I think Rodriguez sore hand might mean he takes a rest today . . . . and mollemas somersault might slow him down, so i predict Kessiakof to win today.

ITV4 is crap, they don't know the difference between Dan and Tony martin. "It's a pity that Wiggins missed Grenoble, but Dan martin is here, so the showdown could be here" Crap commentory and too many adverts.  19

well how would i go about setting up a stream? I have that Sky Go thing now, so could stream Eurosport for you all if i knew how  19

Dan martin is a good call, but i think J-Rod for today with Moreno not far behind, then a bunch of other GC like Nibali, Nieve, Sivtsov (if he's up for it) Wiggo, Fuggleysang and Van Den Broeck

I hope Van Den Broeck, not cause i have him in my team, but if he wins i'll win a team kit from Evans thanks to their facebook page comp

JRod for me, if Moreno chips up fine. Why is nobody talking about Sivstov? But I personally think Moncoutie, because he was gutted he didn't win stage 4.

PS are cycling underpants any good?  26

Cycling underpants?? Personally depending on the kit i'm wearing i go commando or a pair of lyrca shorts with a bit of padding

I think no-one is talking about Sivtsov because he's not been showing himself at all, never up the front and not getting a mention on the TV

I do hope its J-rod then Moreno 1-2 cause i have them both and will be joint top, lol

Depends. You can't beat a proper pair of cycling shorts and I've been known to wear such items under a more 'leisurely' baggy pair for a mountain biker's look if I was trying to avoid appearing too MAMIL-like on certain occasions. But cycling underpants can come into their own if you need to wear civvies to work or whatever. Without being indelicate about one of the main reasons people (well, men anyway) wear cycling shorts, tightish pants with a longer leg that keeps 'everything' in place are an absolute essential if you've ever had an unfortunate sitting down without everything in the correct place moment.

J-rod out Wiggo in and Dan Martin for either Tony or Cancellara

i would leave mollema in for today he might have a good showing , and i would put either marzio bruzeghin in or frederik kessiokoff because i think they might do something today.
