massive night tonight after the mountains showed only 3 real contenders in nibali, evans and wiggins, sammy sanchez out of the tour and olympics, massive blow for spain

the time trial to show who goes into the first rest day confident, my pick is cancellara to win the stage and evens and wiggins to go level pegging

Wiggins has increased his straglehold on the yellow jersy after a dominat victory in the 41.5klm time trial yesterday
Cadel Evans who started the day 10 seconds behind Wiggins, finished 6th in the time trial, with 53mins7secs.
The lead between the two has stretched out to 1minute and 53seconds

stage 10 on tuesday is a 194.4klm route from Macon to Bellengarde-sur-valserine, a highly mountainous leg including the first ever ascent of Col du Grand Colombier!




doesnt look good for Cadel to defend his 2011 Tour Victory!

I think drug test wiggins and especially froome, knocking off cancellara by that much? Looks very suss to me

As for cadel, I think he is in good shape, not many mountain top finishes meaning his descending skills can pick him up alot of time, at 1:53 back with the mountains ahead, he knows he has to attack but also he has no pressure of wearing the yellow jersey, I reckon he will take a massive amount back Wednesday night, huge chance of winning the stage, plus the likes of menchov and nibali will work with him to bring wiggins back

hope so, his BMC team have been dissapointing so far

his tactics are different from wiggins, evans backs his climbing ability, but likes to be paced through the flat stages to keep out of trouble, hence his team selection, he knew the danger was wiggins being a better time trialer hence he knew he would have to attack in week 2, his tactics now are to put a man in the break away every day to have 1 sup[port him at the end if needed while wiggins gets carried through the mountains, evans doesn't care he is not in yellow, puts all the pressure on wiggins and it showed yesterday as they had to do alot of work to chance down nibali, hence evans didn't really attack, he let sky work themselves over, he would have observed how froome, porte and rogers were going and wether they can be there today for wiggins in a massive stage, hilltop finish, can see nibali, menchov, evans and van den broek all teaming up on sky, they want sky to ride themselves out of this race

so i think bmc have sone their job, evans is still sitting good, just would have preferred wiggins have less of a lead, prob about 30 seconds less, but evans had an average tt and wiggins pulled one out of his muscat to get 1:43 on a day

the question now is wether sky can stay up there over 2 HC climbs and a cat 1 climb finish

evans got last night pretty spot on for me, especially coming out of the rest day, he rode his legs back in, today is the stage where it happens for the contenders

you can generally pick the ones that are and aren't

evans, given all his failures, isn't, schlecks are the same, i always questioned contador given his record in 3 week tours

few others to be found out me thinks, but i think due to the step up in checks its in the minority now, not majority, so many masking agents out there that some riders will never get caught unfortunately

every rider in the olympics will be tested so that will be interesting

which makes team usa look bad as the 4 implicated with armstrong: liepheimer, zebriske, van de velde and hincapie, asked not to be considered for the olympics

tried a move and it failed, went down fighting today, this chris froome lookes dodgy as shiraz, looked out of it, then comes back and sprints to the line, test him for everything

wiggins and sky showed weakness today

evans needs to go on a charge with TJ now, solo mission, will be afforded some leeway as wiggins beleives he will have him in the TT, evans needs to go for broke

Cadel has a bad day, Nibali grows some respect for Wiggins and Froome looks like a man with a spare battery pack. Excellent stage.
