Stages 6-8

Chris O won stage 6. I took stages 7 & 8.

The announcers from Universal called yesterday's finish the steepest in grand tour history. As if grades of up to 28% weren't bad enough, there were cobbles as well. It felt like took half an hour for the field to finish the final km. Thank-you PVR. But you can watch the highlights here:

KK still leads the overall GC. He's at 1381 points. I am in second, 73 points back. And King Andy has moved up into third place. He sits at 1094 points.

Also not to be missed is the exciting battle for the lanterne rouge. It has changed hands in each of the last four stages. Matt, Randy, Adam, and now Steve. Andrea, Val, and Brad are in the mix as well.

Full results and overall standings here.

In other vicarious racing news, the Fall Classics Pool continues today as well with the GP Ouest France - Plouay. Can King Andy make it three wins in a row to start the season? Can anyone stop Philippe Gilbert?
