Stage 7 is in progress. The break, which contains many solid climbers, is way up, and after an aggressively ridden first week, the pack has thus far shown limited interest in chasing. Certainly makes for a sharp contrast to the 1997 edition, where some suspiciously fresh riders powered away from the field.
In It’s Not About The Bike, Lance Armstrong relates watching this stage from his hospital bed and thinking that Ulle, then 23, would dominate cycling for the next decade. Sounds bizarre, especially when you consider how the following 10 years actually turned out.
thoughts on “Old-School Andorra”
I didn’t get to watch this stage yet, but followed the live updates from Le Tour’s site. Sounds like some fireworks went off toward the end of the stage, Evans tried an attack which gave Contador the “green light”. In the end Nocentini got yellow by 6 seconds and now gets to hide that hidious new kit for a day or so!!
yeah, I don’t think they used the f-ing big ring this year. kudos to you needle + EPO.
