He's Back

Young Boss Hogg Jr, that is. He burst onto the scene in a big way back in the spring of 2009 during the vicarious classics campaign. But he hasn't really lived up to the hype since then. Today's win on stage 6 serves notice that he is still a major talent. That was an impressive finish.

Another 2009 phenom who has been a bit quiet as of late is Greg, the Lunchbucket Kid. He also made a return to the top today. But not quite the very top. Greg had 265 points to finish second. First place went to a new face in the Tour de France Pool, namely Steve G. He picked up the stage win with a 270 point day. The Halfrican found himself on the final podium step with 225 points.

In the overall race, the top three remain unchanged. But Steve G has bumped Chris O out of fourth overall. Graham remains in fifth place. And Paul continues to hold the lanterne rouge. But Marc is still lurking in the same general vicinity.

Full results and overall standings here.
