To the hills! This stage has breakaway written all over it, and I wouldn't rule out Silence! throwing the yellow jersey away, just to take the spotlight off for a day or so. I got an email from a reader passing on some details from the Aussie press about Cadel's attempt to give the jersey away a few days ago. Those sprint stages were too precious for a break to stay away, but with a couple long climbs today, and the deal going down tomorrow, the motivations could be quite different. If a bunch comes in, then we might see Erik Zabel's last great day on a bike. Actually, that'd be pretty cool. Enjoy!
