"It is exciting this year, it's still wide open," commented Michael Rasmussen after yesterday's stage. "He's a good time trialist but unfortunately, the last few days he cracked in the last four kilometres of the climb. That probably blew his chances to win the Tour de France. In something like ten kilometres he lost about four minutes, that's a little unfortunate. Otherwise he would've been up there as well."
