Why did the chicken cross the road? Well, he was really traversing the contour of the road so he could demolish the field in today's stage 8 of the Tour. Michael Rasmussen wins another mountain stage. Can he keep the yellow to Paris? Sadly, the 100km of individual time-trials still to come will probably eliminate his chances. But he's still got quite a lot more hills to come to make everyone else suffer.
And His Majesty: since this morning's post, Jozsi has summoned the chutzpah to challenge Momo at wrestling; can climb the stairs to our apartment; and likes to fall asleep with his head underneath something... a chair, a table etc.
