Fat Lady hasn't Sung

But she is humming.....
This weekend left a handful of riders in contention. Ricco,DiLuca, Menchov, and Contador look to be the group from which the winner will come. Sella had 2 great days in the mountains. After tomorrow-where things could change if someone has a bad day, there are only 5 stages left with only three that will really provide the opportunity to shake up the GC.
Bettini is riding well-better than some GC guys. he is probably trying to flog himself into so kind of win, somewhere, anywhere....
Vandevelde imploded this weekend leaving Slipstream without much to shoot for-so much for my Hesjedal prediction.
Losing Piepoli would have been a bigger problem for Ricco last week.
Jurgen Van Den Broeck is doing Belgium proud.
Simoni and Pellizotti are also still top ten, but unless someone else has a major malfunction they are unlikely to do it.
Today's time trial has the potential to be epic, but perhaps will be more anti-climatic. I feel sorry for everyone who is out of contention, but still has to ride this beast. Somebody has to carry water bottles on Tuesday! Should be a lot of DNSs this morning,
