Boring? Maybe, but He's in Yellow.

After yesterday's near disaster fall for Cadel Evans, you just knew it was gonna be interesting today. Well, Cadel answered most questions people may have had as to his condition with a brave performance today to take the yellow jersey by 1 second over Frank Schleck of CSC/Saxo Bank. My new favorite Christian Vande Velde of Garmin-Chipotle came in with Evans and is still holding down the 3rd spot.

Observations: Ricco is a serious threat as long as there's mountains to be climbed, but can he TT well enough? Evan's made a few jumps today to try and drop his group but was not successful. Is he in trouble? People aren't sure what to make of Vande Velde right now but the longer this race goes with him hanging around like this,... Who Knows? We may have seen the last of Valverde today, unless it was just a bad day and he comes back after the day off with a big one.

Except for the stupid positive drug test for the Liquigas rider Beltran, this tour is turning out to be VERY exciting.
