Indeed it was but i still believe that the last 3 weeks of determination and strenght speaks a little louder.I think the most impressive part was Cadel addressing the french crowd in basic, halting french after the win. now that's real courage, respect and humility!
Looking back at all stages once again Cadel Evans did a masterfull job putting it all together. He does come out as a defensive rider compared to Contador and Schleck but did get the job done.
I hope that future Tours will either make the TT in the middle week and not as the last real stage or make it much shorter so it does not have such a huge impact on the final classification.
