I'd agree and it looks as though Contador's only getting stronger as the race goes on. I'm still befuddled and amazed at what a strong TT'ist he's become, as looking at his body type you'd never expect him to generate the kind of power and speed he does on the flats, but he's even better in the discipline this year than last.

I agree, as I don't see Killer riding away from many of the top GC guys in the mountains. I like Menchov's position right now and can see him giving the Astana boys fits. Too bad he doesn't have much in the way of support at this race, as there isn't anyone on Rabbo that can lend him help in the mountains. He's basically going to have to wheelsuck and time his attacks if he's capable.
