Stage 3 in a nut shell. Fabian hauls Andy butt through the Hell of the North and still gets the Yellow jersey back. That's a hugely deserved reward for being a team player. Frank Scleck hit the deck hard and is out, but Andy rode really well to get a bunch of time back from Contador. And don't forget Cadel Evans, who did his fair share of the work to help drive the winning break, instead of wheel sucking as he could have. I guess that rainbow jersey has changed his style for the better. He looked strong. What got me about today's stage was how Andy Schleck wanted everyone to know that he's a good bike handler and seemed miffed when people show surprise at how well he rode instead of just saying thanks. Maybe he really thinks he can knock out a bear with just one punch! I glad Thor got the win after yesterday's mess of a finish. He kind of deserved it.

We just got back to internet and TV land today after spending a week at the family cabin. The first thing I did was catch up on the tour. Lance had a baaadddd day, so it goes. Sounds like you follow the riders much more than I do, but I hope to be able to catch most of the remainder.

Yes, I think age is catching up with Lance. Maybe he should claim somebody punched him in the liver and retire gracefully.
