    Fight Breaks Out After Tour Stage 6 | Cyclingnews.com fi

    Tried to club each other with a wheel over touching handlebars.

    McEwen got taken out 75m after the finish by a race official as well. Would've thought they'd have realised there might be some bikes about at a stage finish.

    ^^

    Good stage today, really enjoyed it after the tedium of the flat stages. Pleased that Chavanel got the stage win, looked like he really bust a gut to get there. Good ride by that young Spanish bloke who came 2nd too. A bit gutted for Thomas though, would have been epic if he'd have stayed with Contador/Wiggo/Armstrong group going up and managed to hold on to 2nd.

    I have never been a huge follower of the Tour de France, but last night it was such a delight following the riders as they rode through the Jura Mountains. Breathtaking ride through the hills and past some of the scenic lakes.

    **** me that looks painful. How do you collide with a motorbike though? Did they just knock him off?

    Another really good stage there.

    Been saying it for a while, but I reckon people are overestimating Contador a bit, making him seem like he's invincible, which I don't think he is, judging by how he rode today. Couldn't answer Andy Schleck on the final climb, looked like he didn't really have the legs.

    Reckon Schleck has shown he is the Don really at the moment, had the legs for the finish and managed to gun it to the top without about 4 other team riders like Contador had. Speaking of which, that Daniel Navarro bloke is an absolute don at climbing, just led the group all the way from the bottom of La Palaz, he gets some serious lad points.

    Shame about Wiggo losing a minute or two, he'd been climbing really well keeping up with the big-boys, WAG.

    Also, Australians..

    Where's the love for Cadel Evans and Michael Rogers? Genuinely good cyclists with chances (Evans especially) to finish on the podium. Would have thought the aussies would be right behind them..

    Oh I love Evans. Didn't want to come in here and gush too much at this stage, but nice to see him in the yellow. Not sure whether, if he had his choice, he would have wanted it ahead of Tuesday's stage, but screw it, after the couple of years when he came second, it makes a nice change from him being a few seconds behind.

    One thing that's been strange to me has been that everytime someone rattles off the contenders, Evans always seems to get left out, even on the SBS commentary down here. People talk about Contador and Schleck, and fair enough, and they were mentioning Armstrong, Basso, and even Menshov. You'd be thinking Schleck is looking most likely at the moment, but hell, Evans is in with a massive shout here you'd suggest. He sometimes lacks the ability to putting in a really stinging attack, but equally he's currently ahead, he's a good time trialist and he's generally bloody hard to get rid of on the climbs. Plus his team seems to be a bit more together than Lotto used to be for him.

    All of that said, we're one week into a three week race, with the majority of the Alps and all the Pyrennes ahead, so its a bit early to be getting too excited about anyone. What's happened to Armstrong this year goes to show how precarious the race is for anyone.

    Contador still the man to beat, not going to stop thinking that for a good while yet.

    Hope Cadel does it but dont want to say too much as he has succumbed to pressure on the tour before

    However, after winning the world champs he is apparently more relaxed

    Good news is that he seems to have a unified team behind him for a change so hopefully he wont be left to fight the world by himself

    Have to say that the Tour is really compelling viewing - I can quite happily watch it for a few hours at a stretch just to see the tactics unfold
