Tour de London

Recommended Posts

105km - Caisse d'Epargne could be eyeing a stage win here today, their first of the Tour. It would be a huge disappointment for a team of their size and prestige to go through the whole tour making no impact on the podium, the jerseys or even the stages. Maybe that's why they're not allowing the escapees a free rein.

70km - It looks increasingly like our breakaway is going to stay out today. It's gone out to well over five minutes now, and the Disco boys who are leading the peloton couldn't give two hoots as to who wins this stage. On paper, Milram look like the only team who should be bothered about closing it down, but they evidently are not interested.

69km - Here's how our escapees are placed in the General Classsification: Jens Voigt (35th at 1h17'40"), Martin Elmiger (85th at 2h46'00"), Daniele Bennati (84th at 2h44'17"), Daniele Righi (106e à 3h12'00"), Markus Fothen (46th at 1h39'10"), Manuel Quinziato (127th at 3h24'03"), Matteo Tosatto (128th at 3h24'07"), David Millar (76th at 2h34'24").

51km - Meanwhile, Michael Rasmussen has hit out at his Rabobank team for sacking him. The Dane said: "This is the work of a man at the end of his nerves. My manager is mad. I was not in Italy, not at all. This is all the work of a man (Italian commentator Davide Cassani) who thinks he recognised me. But there is not the slightest proof."

39km - Christian Guiberteau (Bouygues Télécom sporting director): "From the start we attacked, then took up teh chase behind the breakaway. It's a shame it didn't happen for us at the start. We had targeted this stage today. Concerning the general atmosphere at the moment, we are trying to concentrate on our work and to please the public."

19km - With almost eight minutes to play with over the final 20 kilometres, no suprises that the cat and mouse games are beginning in the breakaway. David Millar knows he needs to attack from a slightly longer way out than the rest. The same is the case for Jens Voigt and Markus Foethen.
