The God Of Thunder
What a great race today and what a shame that David Millar the Scot from Garmin couldn't hold on for the win after a superlative ride. But the sight of Thor Hushovd storming to the line after a pretty grueling uphill finish was truly breath-taking. Exciting stage for a usually boring flat stage of the tour. The GC contenders did not change again, so tomorrow the shake-out should begin as the riders begin to wrestle with the mountains.
As for me, another morning loop and a couple of miles on the Brompton for good measure on a simply magnificent day. Tonight, the first Phillies game of the year!
