Now I don't understand how this race works at all, that's why I haven't posted, but what happens now? Some people are saying Cadel has won but there's still a stage to go?

^The final stage is flat and easy, and the riders don't attack for yellow traditionally. All Cadel has to do is cross the line with the peleton basically.

Cadel was really strong today. He deserves the win.

Andy is still young but it must be frustrating. Second for the third time in a row.

So over the past 55 minutes he came from a minute down to a minute and a half in front? That's pretty impressive

THAT, Mark Webber, is how you win.

Yes it was impressive. If you take a minute on Contador in a TT you've rode very well.

Amazing TT by Evans. He was consistently strong throughout the entire tour, and I had a feeling going into today that he might finally pull it off, and he did.

I like the Schlecks a lot and hope Andy improves his TT abilities so he can win this soon. Evans is already 34 years old, and his window was closing, so I'm happy for him.

Watch as everybody in Australia who just a week ago agreed enthusiastically with me that the Tour de France is indescribably dull television now suddenly becomes an expert on cycling and has been a fan since way back, mate.

It's an incredible achievement, given Evans' position. While his BMC team mates compliment him much better than his old Silence Lotto mates, the courage and focus that Evans has exhibited over the past few weeks has just been a joy to follow. He was without allies in the Alps, he was alone in reducing the time advantage of Schleck's breakaway in Stage 18 and he was composed enough to match the other GC contenders in Stage 19 after he had bike problems. He was also brilliant in the early part of the tour, snaring some key seconds with some useful attacks on the first stage in particular.

It's the toughest individual sporting event in the world... And arguably the greatest ever individual achievement by an Australian sportsperson.

watching snippets on the news of commercial stations this is too true! I'm fucking sick of it, well done mate but jeez every 5 seconds on the news.

What a horrible day for cycling... The least they could've done was make sure that Contador wasn't allowed to enter races before he was sentenced.

The whole process was a joke. Guilty or not, to go this long for a decision is ridiculous.

Evans again this year then? The route is definitely in his favour.
