Whew! Is anyone left to start on Tuesday?

(Note: this information isn't easy to find online, though it is probably available to members of the press on site - does anyone know of a place online where they are posted routinely?)

I have no idea where to get this info except at at your great site. Thank you for all the hard work and a different, and interesting perspective, on what is turning out, for me at least, to be a great, great Tour.
Thank you! It's certainly been unpredictable!!! Thanks for stopping by!
Good grief, that truly is carnage. I missed todays stage but I will look out for highlights later.
What's with all the digestive complaints? Sounds a bit peculiar to me.
