Holy Halberto!

The cagey librarian rolled the dice and placed a couple of his riders in the day's big breakaway. And his gamble paid off perfectly. He got the stage win from Miguel Rubiano. Adriano Malori grabbed a second place finish and also got to put on the maglia rosa at the end of the day. Halberto also got points from Pozzato, Felline, and Hesjedal. It all added up to 405 points and a very big stage win. He moves up all the way from 21st place to 3rd overall. Not a bad day at the office. Joe finished a distant second. He had 230 points. And Val rounded out the podium with a 155 point day.

Jason continues to lead the overall race. But it's getting tighter at the top. King Andy is just 38 points back now. And Halberto is only another 12 points back of him.

Full results and overall standings here.

More medium sized mountains tomorrow.

And Hushovd and Farrar are both done. Poor Thor.

Thor sucks. Don't feel sorry for him. He had a good run a few years back. It's over.
