Carnage at Le Tour – Blood Donors Needed

Posted: July 7, 2010 in It's All Important Stuff

( O + ) The big winners today are Cadel Evans and Andy Schleck, while Cancellara is back in yellow. Oh, and the God of Thunder, Thor Hushovd, takes out a great stage win.

Let’s recount the GC carnage from today:

( O – ) Christian Vande Velde did not start.  Frank Schleck crashed out.  My long-shot call, Robert Gesink, loses big and is effectively out of contention. Carlos Sastre and Ivan Basso are finito.

(B – ) The big story is that Lance loses a minute to Contador and a few seconds more to Cadel Evans and Andy Schleck.

Bradley Wiggins and Denis Menchov quietly hold their own.

So this leaves Alberto Contador, Cadel Evans and Lance as the biggest contenders.  Ironically, this is my original podium prediction.  We cannot completely rule Wiggins or Menchov out at moment.

Stage 4 into Reims will be busiest for the Tour Doctor and medical staff.  Anyone able to make a blood or medical supply donation, please visit
