Wow! Gilbert finished so strong... he's gotta be the favorite for L-B-L....

I suppose A Schleck had no other choice, he had to go early and try to keep off the front. But that 12 degree grade finish sprint---they caught him like he was standing still.

He pulled the train up to Schleck and then took down everyone on the sprint in..........some 22 percent grades on the way-he was soooo strong!

Gotta love it when those 'old women' ;) at Eurosport (Harmon & Kelly) say that Gilbert panicked and went too early... basically that he blew the race.

And then... he proves them wrong. Emphatically. As they said afterwards "only he knew what he had in his legs".
