Never seen so many happy GC contenders!
Even Vande Velde was thrillled in spite of losing
a sec.

So, how do these guys sort out in terms of their estimated time trial?

Will Schleck and Kohl need a bigger lead going into the time trail to
make
the podium?

are 3-6 the real podium contenders?

What's the chance that someone below here will make the podium?

Thanks Bob for these great summaries!
