TDF stage 12 / flat - Sorenson wins in a solo break! / Jerseys unchanged...

Rinaldo Nocentini in yellow, but tomorrow will likely be his last day...And so guess what?  Yeah, Mark Cavendish did not winNicki Sorensen pulled away from a seven-man break on the 212km 12th stage from Tonnerre to Vittel, the last relatively flat day before the Tour returns to the mountains Friday. 

The jerseys were unchanged, but I hope Rinaldo Nocentini enjoys wearing yellow tomorrow, because I fear it will be his last day, as tomorrow the Tour heads into the Vosges, where danger awaits.  I expect a lot of attacking tomorrow, as the GC men realize it is on now, and they have to do something to prevent an Astana parade to the podium.  It should be exciting!
