Oh Jens! (get up)
Believe me these roads are full of gravel and rough surfaces and irregularly engineered corners. This is not an easy place for fast descents. The area is dramatically green with very steep valleys. Sharp mountains and sharp roads. Every turn takes their full attention. And mine, stay upright Jens!
Andy Schleck might as well just turn his bike around and ride up backwards, he looks back so frequently. Look back, attack, Cadel's head goes down, Thomas is still there, look back, attack, Cadel's head goes down, hey look it's Basso, look back, attack ...
