Epic certainly was't too strong to describe today. 98 miles in 3:18 in those conditions!
Are you kidding me? Hard men.

3:18 is two minutes off my last Rosarito-Ensenada time. I felt like I really hauled ass that day.

But R-to-E is only half the distance of today's stage.

These guys did twice my best ass-hauling speed, over twice the distance!

More rain, no lead-out trains, sprint chaos, Sagan in the mix once again. Grooovy!

Sweet! Greipel (The Gorilla) gets one.

I am hoping other sprinters get their day as well. Kristoff, Sagan and Coquard all close, hopefully Renshaw or Van Poppel or others can get it right.


....and yesterday Nibali looked AWESOME on the cobbles!

They were moving. A bunch of people lost time 'cause they went OTB at the end.

Every day so far has seen a really good race.

The cobblestones stage could have been called "A Wednesday In Hell".

Oh, I forgot to say (yesterday)"great win for Lars Boom!"

It was a good day for a World Champ Cyclocross kinda' guy, awesome!

Yes, they were moving! 3:18 for 98, RAD!

AArrrgghh!

Tejay goes down and loses time, crap.

Andrew goes down as well, he shouldn't have been that close to the front in a full gas sprint. Nibali was just far enough back to be safe.

I was hoping J. Rod would hang on for the stage win but it didn't happen. (edit) But, he did take the polka dot jersey lead, that is a good consolation and better if he can take it to Paris.

I will miss Contador. He would definitely have given Nibali a run for it in the mountains.

Others will step up to the plate.

Yep. Kudos.

Great racing again today.
