While I was on vacation, Wim Vansevenant slipped into the runner up slot, a full minute ahead of his new challenger, a nobody who's name I refuse to even bother with. I'm afraid it will be tough to ease back into the last slot with only the time trial left. Of course with a pro like Wim, we cannot discount the last day ceremonial ride into Paris. Maybe he still has something up his sleeves. Let us hope he gets the necessary team support.
