Menchov Stalking the Killer

The Killer has stolen the pink jersey from young Thomas Lovkvist. But he better watch his back. The eerily quiet Denis Menchov announced his presence in this race with a pretty convincing win in today's tough mountain stage. After today, it looks like the overall battle will be between Di Luca, Menchov, Lovkvist, Basso, Leipheimer, and Sastre. All the other so-called contenders lost significant time today. But there is still a long way to go. See Pez for more.

Final kilometre:

Greg W took the win today in the vicarious race, with 285 points. Mike G (215) and Kevin K (205) RRRounded out the podium. Chris A takes over the overall lead from Dan, prince of the cycling pool, while Greg has moved up into third place. It is all very nice and cosy at the top. The first 5 teams are separated by just over 60 points. Nobody is running away with it just yet.
