    That doesn't automatically translate into a "must love Lance" and "must loathe Contador" for me.
    Um, it was not an "automatic must love Lance" for me either. I simply admire what he has done with the Livestrong organization and find Contador annoying.

    What an exciting stage today. Andy and Alberto battling it out on the climb then working together to catch the break away. Bummer about Cadel. Levi moves up to 6th but looses more time to the leaders. Wow.

    Just saw that Cadel had a broken arm. I guess that would explain the day.

    What a stage. So happy for Andy and Levi.

    Did you catch the point when Schleck and Contador dropped him? He was trying so hard to stay with them so he could help Schleck on the descent, but then he cracked. Went from 60 to 0 in 0.01 seconds. The man is amazing. He really gave it his all.

    The man put everything into helping Andy and had nothing left. A true team player!

    Although I didn't want to see Lance go out of contention - primarily because I think the casual cycling audience will now stop watching...

    I think it's great that people are paying attention to the other cyclists. Would Jens get this attention if Lance had been in contention? And Cadel's broken elbow - I can't imagine staying in with that kind of injury.

    So, even though it's sad that Lance had a run of bad luck, it's good for the other cyclists. Other than Contador, I'd be happy seeing any of the top 10 win.

    Poor Cadel, I hairline fractured my elbow when I was 13 talk about pain! He is full of guts to say he won't abandon unless they think he will cause permanent damage.

    Jens always looks like he will rip his handlebars off, I love him!

    I like Bob, too bad you have to get Craig to see his show. We just fast forward to Ask Bobke. Phil and Paul are way more interesting to me anyway, even if Phil seems scatter brained this year.

    No wonder Cadel looked like he was going to heave for much of the race. Yikes.

    I hope Jens got Most Combative for that stage. What a trooper.

    the Russians are coming

    Keep an eye out for Denis Menchov of Rabobank. I think he likes having no attention...kinda like a stealth rider.
    Wonder what 'Strong will do with his freedom. I'd actually like to see him win a stage, or just mess with the top teams for Levi.
    Jeez, CycleGod...no more injuries for these boys please.

    I LOVE watching Jens! He is not a smooth cyclist...watching him time trail is like watching someone have a fight with their bike for miles and miles. He was awesome yesterday. So sad when he finally blew up...nothing left.

    I don't wish for crashes or injuries...by my goodness this has been an interesting tour!
