Stage 13 Lucky for Chris O

After five days in the vicarious pink jersey, Miriam's time at the top of the standings has come to an end. Chris O had a monster day today, with 435 points, and took over the top spot. With Rujano, Contador, and Gadret on his team, he swept the podium on the stage. Nice. BCC's cyclocross sensation and all around good guy now leads Little M by 15 points. They pretty much share everyone but Rujano (Chris) and Serpa (Miriam) and their stage hunter and wildcard guys. It could be interesting. The Hipster also had a big day today. With 400 points, he bumped Graham out of the top three. But only by 4 points. Dan was third on the day and continues his meteoric rise toward the top of the standings. He was in 6th last place just 5 stages ago. Now he's in 9th place and less than 300 points from a podium spot.

Full results and overall standings here.

Tomorrow's stage will be one worth watching. Not for the results. Contador will no doubt ride away from everyone again. But the final climb up Mt Zoncolan, with its grades of up to 22%, should be fun to watch.
