    Tremendous ride by Tony Martin last night.

    But probably not the wisest thing to smash your legs the night before a big mountain stage tonight.

    Oh me too since day one but haven't shared my thoughts about it.

    Today the party is getting started I think. Really looking forward to this stage.

    It's amazing the best weather so far for the riders was in Yorkshire. Some of the conditions so far in France have been tough.

    Really enjoying it this year, anyone can win. Not been this excited watching it since the EPO days.

    Poor Contador broke his leg yesterday. Incredible that he actually got back on the bike to climb that mountain before giving up.

    Sure cycling will always be associated with doping but these guys do have some serious willpower.
