Why I LOVE this Race – SPOILERS IN THIS POST STAGE 8
July 9, 2011
SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER
The final KM is here and I’m watching the big names in the 2011 Tour de France chasing down Vinokourov together. It’s Cadel and Andy and Alberto in a pack of three chasing up the hill.
Cadel Evans has shot off the front and is cranking down the road and may have opened a tiny gap on Contador and Andy Schleck.
But no! The groupo ended up together – just back of the main leaders and Thor Husovd.
So nothing changes today in the GC other than a win by Movistar rider Rui Costa. Cadel Evans finished in third with Sammy Sanchez in fourth.
Wow. I suggest if you haven’t watched any of this year’s Tour, do so tonight. The real flavor of the race comes from about 6KM to go and keeps you glued to your seat.
See you tomorrow for stage 9.
