Tour de France: Stage 7

The first mild mountain stage caused the expected shakeup in the peloton yesterday.  No big changes amongst the main contenders for the overall classification.

Interesting comment I heard yesterday.  When Lance got his flat tire on the cobblestones, he was over a minute ahead of Contador.  He ended up finishing a minute behind Contador.

Making up a minute on a great climber like Contador is a tall task, even for the Superman we’ve come to know as Lance Armstrong.

In today’s stage 8, Armstrong was involved in a crash right before the big climb of the day, and is having problems.  Not a good sign.
