Don't know if it was mentioned a couple of days ago but Geox got a wildcard for the Giro so Menchov and Sastre will be going for it which is great news to those of us looking forward to it.

Tomorrow's stage:
I know a lot of the start of this stage. St SymphoriensurCoise isn't that far from Lyon and we often do a big part of the opening 3040km. There is in fact a long climb before the first Cat. 3 one. If we do long summer rides (120150km), we'll take in the Col de la Croix de Chaubouret near St Etienne which is long and quite hard. The final climb looks very hard too. The favourites will all be there at the finish. I'm going for N.Roche for a surprise victory. Last edited by kabbott; 09032011 at 07:42 PM.

A slightly disappointing stage 5 today. I actually gave up doing my "étape" this afternoon to watch it live. That'll learn me! There are still tomorrow's TT and Saturday and Sunday's stages, all of which are hard.

Yesterday's final 10km from France télévision:

#298




Looked like Sanchez had a problem with a gear change in the run in from an aerial view I saw earlier. Not sure though.
Will watch Voeckler's final 10k later, nice one.

Had hoped to watch the last bour today but events transpired against me so glad it wasn't a big miss. Thanks for posting the last 10k from yesterday  well worth a watch, always enjoy a Voekler breakaway.
