Cadel gave it to this TT on a brutal climb with the steepest section not even a seeled road. Cadel swaped his worlds strip for the point leader jersey and was a force on the hill posting the second fastest time and taking 30sec out of Basso his main rival for GC.

Checkout BS blog for some cracking social commentary:

"Basso wasn't the only rider being pursued by a figure on foot. David Arroyo's mechanic not only ran after the maglia rosa for much of the steepest part of the final dirt track section - but he did so while rolling along a spare bike just in case the Spaniard got a flat at a rather inopportune moment. Talk about dedication, but what's next - Usain Bolt being employed to support Cav in the Tour?" - Blazing Saddles

Richie porte put ina cracing effort - holding third in GC and increasing his lead in the white jersey (young rider).
