The yellow jersey

July 15, 2008

I won’t pretend to be enough of an expert on the Tour de France to speculate as to whether Cadel Evans wanted, in a strategic sense, to be in the yellow jersey after the Tourmalet/Hautacam stage.  All I know is that I was really happy to see him ride so well after such a horrible previous stage, and he seemed thrilled to pull the jersey on at the end of it all.

Whether Silence-Lotto is strong enough to defend the jersey is something I know nothing about, but I doubt that Cadel will give it up without a fight.

The biggest question is: will Paul Sherwen now use his preferred honorific “certain” when referring to Cadel?
