Do any of you think Rasmussen can keep the yellow jersey? It's going to be hard for him tommorow to not lose time in the time trial.
And what about the Danish team dropping him from their squad? Isn't this a bit coincidental seeming that he's leading the biggest cycling race in the world?

What a fantastic ride by Vino......never stops fighting that guy - can't see him clawing back another 5 mins though, but you never know!!
And Rasmussen - time trial of his life - can he do that again in the last time trial??

Kloden or Evans for GC now.
