The Long Strange Trip Continues

What was that stage 10 about? Yellow Jersey getting bottles, the favored teams not driving the pace, or breaking the legs of everyone else. Sure, let the guys out of contention go, but that was a huge break and the opportunity to "stamp your hand on the table" and let the peloton know who's the boss.

I guess we'll see the bombs get dropped tomorrow.

I don't think there was much authority to be stamped. Whatever gains made in the climbs would have, or were, levelled out in the descent. Look at how riders like Honchar and Leipheimer got back into the peloton after being dropped on the final climb.

Agreed and they must've been holding back for today's massive stage.
