Caked in Mud. Awashed in Glory!
Mud galore. That's what it was all about in today's epic stage 7. I got my wish of watching one of the most exciting and mud splattered racing in memory performed over Tuscany's Strade bianche. The white dust was brown with mud and provided the perfect arena for a good ole mud slinging match. Had it been dry the peloton most likely been intact. Winner, Cadel Evans rode in command and looked worthy of his World Champion jersey. A great race and looking at the riders' muddy blank expressions leave me no doubt that this stage is a cake walk before the impending mountain stages!
