Isolation. Although Lance did not lose any time today to his main rivals, his Discovery Team was nowhere to be found on the final climb of the day. Rare sight to see Armstrong along in a pack of other riders–blood was in the water today.

Odd performance since today’s stage was not a mountain stage and the climb at the end was a cat 2 climb–not all that difficult and not one that should have seen the entire Discovery Team slip off the back. Lance was his usual self and quite frank in the post race interviews. Not gonna be a happy discussion around the Disco dinner table tonight.

Posted in the comment section is Chris Carmichael’s take on the day. I have always appreciated the non-spin and his take sounds like the straight up and up review of the day. I didn’t link his comments since the site I took them from would force you to register to read them. Enjoy.
