Phil Ligget & Paul Sherwen?

so many crashes this tour
Stage 12 was crazy on those descents with the bikes just coming out from under the riders.
Happy with Cadel in 3rd at the moment, Contador 7th

Are you watching it on Versus? During the pregame show, they frequently compare the distance of the stage to a distance between a couple of cities in the US.

No I am watching it on SBS, in Australia...
They always have pre-race comments in their SBS gear...so I assumed they were exclusive.
Very good commentators though.

Last night was big, and tonight (Stage 14) looks massive ~ 6 climbs, with one unclassified...

Cadel, sandwiched between the Schlecks will need some decent support from BMC... Would like to see him put some serious time on F. Schleck...

I'll have to do some catching up. I "Schlecked" my chain on yesterday's ride and crashed pretty bad, CATSCAN was clear but I don't remember anything from most of the day, even the trip to the hospital. I've got to remember to keep the rubber side down. Retiring another helmet.
