I'm not such a huge Levi fan... maybe it has something to do with Astana kind of bothering me. Anyway, it would really take something dramatic in the next few stages, wouldn't it? Hopefully Di Luca's hopes are high enough and we can have some very exciting racing in the next few days. It was nice seeing the TT shake things up, and seeing yesterday's stage with Di Luca and Menchov dropping everyone trying to catch the breakaway man up that climb.

I do hope there are some good "fair fights" at the end here. Lead switching hands and all that. Breakaways by GC leaders -- like Levi did in California.

I was so pulling for the Garmin boy during today's sprint finish. American's aren't doing so hot, although I know it's not our "turf."

My morning work ethic will increase exponentially when the Giro is over...

Enjoyed your last two posts, btw.

Thanks, Mellow! I wasn't able to watch the stage this a.m. -- got into work late due to sneaking in a morning ride! I hope there are more fireworks left in the few stages left!
