TdF Stage 15

Perhaps it's a little early to call it, but the Tour GC tends to be decided by mountaintop finishes and we've probably seen enough. I think the major remaining questions are if Armstrong and Wiggins can maintain their podium spots on Ventoux.

Armstrong got a lot of grief for a comment regarding the quality of the top finishers in last year's Tour, but after today it looks like he might have had a point. Running down the top 5 from '08:
  1. Sastre is 11th at 3:52,
  2. Evans is 14th at 4:27,
  3. Kohl is flipping burgers in Vienna,
  4. Menchov is 29th at 11:23,
  5. Vande Velde is 12th at 3:59.
I am now waiting for Armstrong to "kick their asses". Team time trials do not count.
