It's a hot toasty day after yesterday's climbs devastated the group. Today is a relatively flat stage, which I'm sure will be used as a welcome rest stage after yesterday's stage and in preparation for tomorrow's stage heading into the Alps. I don't expect too much of a change in the standings today unless something big happens. I expect Voekler may hang onto the yellow jersey for another day unless yesterday's effort left him too drained to stay close to Armstrong.
Today's OLN word of the day is BREAK AWAY.
