Re: 2011 Tour de France

Massive attack by Andy and he has gained back just about all his time. Evans gained a second or two, but Contador cracked and lost a further 1 1/2 mins.

I don't understand why no one helped BMC after Andy attacked. Contador and Sanchez had people and their teams didn't do anything until Andy was 3+ minutes and climbing. They had to know they didn't have the legs to make up 4+ minutes. Those two have probably cost themselves a chance at the podium.

Great chase by Evans, he just about halved Andy's advantage by the end by himself over the last 15Km. However, this effort might prevent him from winning given the tough stage tomorrow. Problem is as shown today is that the other contenders can't help and that means he has to fight with both Schlecks who are younger and better in the mountains. I'm really hoping he can keep them within 1 1/2 mins, any more I don't think Evans can chase down that.
