Vuelta Stage 7... LIVE!

The stage befeore the big time trial is always a dilemma for most riders, who would prefer a little piano time, say about 130 bpm on the heart rate monitor. This would usually allow for a break to stay away and have their moment. Unfortunately for everyone, my hunch is that Milram have a pretty big chip on their shoulder right now, and will try to pin back the breaks. Which means today will look a lot like yesterday, and Milram will simply escort Oscar Freire to another win.

One note: Koldo Fernandez had the biggest turn of speed at the line yesterday, he just didn't sort it out in time. If he ever figures it out, he might give Freire a run for his money. Hell, if he just gets lucky and a lane opens up...
