    Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré Stage 5: Mont Ventoux. Spoilers etc.

    Rbr - Discuss!


    Will Cadel Evans be able to do a Denis Menchov and stick with Contador and piss the hell out of him?

    How about Don Alejandro? Will he go firing and pull time back?

    Is Ivan Terrible gonna be able to go away? I doubt so IMO since he IS tired for God's sake!! He HAS to be!!

    But he will do well IMO too.

    Alberto Contador is my pick. That bastard better win ONCE when I pick him!

    Is Levi Leipheimer gonna be springing out and offering the riders Road ID's?

    How about Lance? Will Max Armstrong piss on the other guys?

    i read the breakaway is blowing up and the gap is down to 2:00.
    i also read conti is saying he doesnt care to win this stage. he is reconning for le tour and wants to save the matches. might be lip service, though, as evans has said he, too, i smore concerned about le tour. plus there are a few more days of hills in this race. i think evans need to win at least one stage race this calendar year.

    feeling better, uzzie?

    Now the attacks start.

    Basso is leading or rather, in the lead group trying to bridge to Schmidt.

    I believe Contador will still test his legs a little bit. I mean, he IS sticking to Evans now.

    Evans, well, I'm sure he'd want to KEEP the jersey instead of let it go right?

    Just atmo.

    gesink seems to be attracting a lot of attention...

    But Evans has to be on the back though.

    Robert Gesink has gone now too.

    Valverde is ahead of the Basso group and has gone as well too.

    Zubeldia is dropping back from the Basso group.

    Jesus Hernandez was chasing Gesink and Contador followed suit.

    Man, Basso and Valverde are both riding better today than in the past few years.

    Gesink is doing a LOT of work. Contador is isolated and Evans is of course without any teammates.

    Basso is working with Alejandro now.

    Gesink is trying to get someone to do the work but NOBODY wants to.

    Hahaha kinda funny how the commentators put it.

    My bad, it's Schmidt and Valverde and NOT Basso and him. Sorry. I repeat, Basso is NOT with Valverde.

    Evans has some good acceleration in his legs, looking solid.
