I'll admit I was pulling for Lance to win one more Tour de France this year. Score one for the old guy? But I kind of expected Alberto Contador to win again, because he's so good, and so young. I like watching him climb, the way he dances on his pedals to keep his speed up. But after today I'm finding it hard to root for him.
By the end of the stage with it's fast, dangerous descent, Contador had erased the 30-some second lead that Schleck had started the day with, and was in the yellow jersey by 8 seconds. Phil and Paul disagreed as to whether Contador should have attacked, or waited until Schleck was back in the group.
I'm pulling for an Andy Schleck miracle.
