Flat finish

Just learned from that, although technically a mountain finish, the stage really has a 2 km plateau at the end. Meaning that the group of now-5 (Landis, Leipheimer, Menchov, Evans, & Sastre) won't break apart at the end, unless one of them has legs for a huge sprint. But breaking on the final climb shouldn't be an issue. Instead, expect 2 km of constant attacks and reelings in. Maybe a photo finish.

Update: Landis has inexplicably led the Group for the last 1+ km, driving pretty hard. He can't possibly have enough after that to attack at the end. Can he?
