TDF Power Play
Posted by Gordon Smith

Today Team Discovery is answering any questions that were raised by their failure on Saturday. The team is scorching the field in an unprecedented display of power pacing, leaving all but a handful of challengers languishing on the side of a Category 1 climb. Including all three of T-Mobile's supposed contenders. This looks like a defining stage.

UPDATE: I missed this part of the story ...

   They covered the 111-mile 10th stage in 4 hours, 50 minutes, 35 seconds. Because of a protest at the start by farmers angry over wolf attacks on their sheep and cows, organizers shortened the race by more than 9 miles, beginning it after the town of Froges, near the city of Grenoble.

From a distance -- which is the only way I have ever seen them -- French farmers seem like teenagers to me. The world revolves around them.
