Sshhhh, I think he's going to say something !

I have to admit, I cracked the sads when I saw Cadel Evans get off his bike last night and start checking out his back wheel. At first, I thought it was not his bike that was the problem. Cadel then pulled off one of the best rides I've seen, he has left no doubt how tough he really is and how good he really is.
When you hear commentators talking about body language and how good Alberto blah, blah, Cadel makes it all sound like crap. While the Spaniard dances on his pedals, the Aussie looks a Huntsman spider moving from side to side on the bonnet of a car. He has shown me what he's made of and has shown the most important component on a bike is the ticker in the the person who's riding it.
I loved watching Cadel tell Andy Schleck to get stuffed last night when he was asking him to help he and his brother beat him.
If he wins "The Tour", he will be in my opinion the most deserving, as for the whole race, he has been outstanding, and has shown "true grit"
If I'm asked who will win the race, I am still scared to say who my guess is, like Meg, in case I put a mozz on him, but after 3 weeks it's still up in the air, right up untill last night, I was thinking if Thomas Voeckler hangs on he could surprise us in the time trial, since all the experts were saying he would lose the yellow jersey once they got into the high mountains, rriiight !
It's been the best tour I've watched (even without Lance). and it all comes down to tonight, the race of truth.

I plan to drag myself out of bed tomorrow morning, for a ride from Lancefield at 9am. Please let us know if you are coming, 'coz if not I'm staying in bed and heading out later.


Thanks to Joe for his interpretation of the last supper, your talent is being wasted.
