KK and Little M

KK won the stage with 290 point day. With Contador and Petacchi, he had second and third place on the day. Nocentini also kicked in 65 points for good measure. Not a bad day for the man they like to call Thor over at the RRR HQ. The real Thor is no doubt more than a little bit jealous. He hasn't seen the top of the podium lately. Graham and Miriam rounded out the podium with 270 and 245 points, respectively.

Miriam tossed Bill off the top step of the podium and grabbed the overall lead. KK moved into second and sits juts under 50 points off the lead. Bill drops all the way down to third overall. But he's just 2 points back of KK, and so still very much alive. Andrea and Chris O, also separated by just two points, are waiting for one of the the leading trio to falter. They are both less than 100 points from grabbing the overall lead. Things can change in a hurry, especially as we reach some of the more noteworthy mountain stages. That happens tomorrow with the final climb up Mt Etna.

Full results and overall standings here.

The Tour of California also starts tomorrow. Follow it if you must. There will not be a vicarious version.
