    I think a lot of it is his team's management. They sign the wrong guys, let go the guys they were meant to keep and make some baffling selections. I guess the good thing now is that if he wants to win, he will have to go on the attack in Andorra.

    First year pro Brice Feillu of Agritubel takes the win in Andorra. Probably saved his team's arse as they need a new sponsor for next year. Italian Rinaldo Nocentini of AG2r takes the yellow jersey. Britian's Bradley Wiggins has a strong ride and keeps his spot in the top 10.

    I watched the highlights without knowing what had happened last night- a refreshing change- and when the breakaway hit the final slope I saw Brice Feillu at the back and thought he would be the first to drop back- he just didn't look good. The other major surprise was how well Bradley Wiggins rode the climb, though he himself seems unsure whether he can do the same in the Alps. If he could achieve his goal and finish in the top 20 it would be really exciting. It goes to show the work put in behind the scenes that people without satellite tv never get to see develop in other races.

    You have to admire Evans. Tries hard. In a break again, with Hushovd, Zabriskie and Wiggins.

    Forget Contador, Wiggo was on fire yesterday, had the ride of his life. Fair play to Feillu though, took some series climbing to win that stage.

    Stunned by Wiggins' ride yesterday. Every other cyclist in that group he finished with is a man who I would expect to be top-10 or thereabouts...

    Evans, two Schlecks, Leipheimer, Armstrong, Martin, Menchov, Sastre, Karpets, Vandevelde - all quality. Stayed with the pace comfortably today, as well.

    Obviously he is going to win the whole thing, would be shocked if he didn't. Reckon he should win the polka-dot jersey as well.

    Gutted that Cavo is out of the Green, hopefully he can get back to owning everyone when we get out of the mountains.

    I'm glad Hushovd has taken the green jersey, he seems like a lot more humble and modest then Cavendish who has grown a big mouth and a rather inflated ego. That and Hushovd is a lot more versitile then Cavendish is.

    Clearly still a two-horse race.

    I knew I should have put Pierrick Fedrigo in there.I had to laugh when I was watching th stage last night as I have covered about 30% of the route that they rode last night. I know how hard it is to climb the Tourmalet and how fast you can go down the other side and the roads they rode on following it.

    Tonights stage will be interesting. There will be no race radios allowed so the riders will have to think for themselves. Should make it quite exciting.
