He took a 1min 14 secs off Cadel Evans; his team-mate Andreas Klöden was 1min 39 secs back -- after he crashed! Again, impressive performances on rain-slick streets by Astana (1st, 3rd, and 4th) and Discovery (6th, 7th, and 9th).
I'm thinking my hypothesis about Leipheimer maybe becoming Alberto Contador's lieutenant in a go-for-yellow is coming true. These final seven stages are going to be fun to keep track of.
And I will be at home this coming week! Meg, who is really fantastic with our vizsla-monsters (who the Monster Name Decoder calls 'Villager-Injuring Zombie from the Sunless Legendary Abbey'), has big work thing coming up and so I have time off to monitor the monkeys. Oh boy.
The good news is that Jozsi is getting accustomed to sleeping through the night in his kennel, is getting used to going outside to go to the bathroom, has been introduced semi-successfully to his leash, and has been kenneled and left in the house next to Momo (in his kennel) for an hour with no apparent negative effects. Phew.
And we may have found another hunt test for Momo to go to in October. Yippee.
