Stage 8 and the Funky Chicken

Don't you wish that Robbie would have asked the question he wanted to ask?

"So Levi, tough day today, now tell me. Was it the team's strategy for you to pretend not to be a contender, then get George to pretend he's a breakaway specialist, and finally psyche Contador up enough to make him look like he has the most talent on the whole squad?"

Ok, enough of that, i've been pretty busy, i didn't even put together the idea that the Chicken might make this thing stick until i talked to Jeff today. It's true, when you climb like a chicken who can follow? At this pace, he might exit the Pyrenees with a 15 minute lead, which may be enough for him to carry it through the final timetrial, during which he'll crash 8 times. ba dum bum

I predicted that Eric would win today, what i didn't predict was that he would place 4th overall out of 2,493 teams! INCREDIBLE. His performance stomped the crap out of the rest of us, and moved him into 92nd overall. 654 points is more than Webb has turned out in 8 stages, amazing. Could the overall lead be far behind? Stay tuned

Right! Perhaps Arroyo can teach the mighty clucker to tumble over cliffs without injury to person or machine. -jeff
