TdF Stage 17

The GC activity today was all very exciting, but the ride of the day has to go to Thor Hushovd. Said Thor:

"Today everything just felt perfect. I attacked over the first climb, did a good descent and then had an amazing day in the front," Hushovd said. "I think this is the best day I've ever had on the bike."

This is being played up as a smackdown to Cavendish (as if this bike race was lacking in manufactured histrionics), but I think that distracts from what an awesome ride this was. It is great to see my geeky blogging disrupted by news of manly riding!
