Mount Ventoux doesn't disappoint at Paris Nice

In surpirse stage, Cadel Evans takes the victory a top Mount Ventoux. Evans benefited from Robert Gesink. Yes, Robert Gesink! The dude who climbed with Levi in the Tour of California. The young climber sprung from a select group of Frank Schleck, Nocentini, Yaroslav Popovych, and Cadel Evans. Evans was the only one who could follow. Since Popovych was going for the overall Evans wouldn't work with Gesink. The skinny Rabobank rider went 100% for the last 3km. He put up a good fight in the sprint but Cadel nipped him at the line. Gesink slipped into the leaders jersey by 30 seconds over a ageless Davide Rebellion, who never gave up the fight. Noncentini from AG2R is 3rd on GC and Popovych hangs on for fourth. Overnight leader Chavanel fell to 10th after blowing 7k from the line. Slipstream's Trent Lowe is the highest placed rider for them at 21st.

Props to Jengs Voigt for going on another one his crazy all day breakaways. Look for Cunego or Schleck to try and take one of the mountain stages before the race is over. They both seem to be riding well and are out of the overall.
