Contador slipped further behind rivals Frank Schleck, Cadel Evans, Andy Schleck, Ivan Basso and Damiano Cunego after suffering on the final 2km ascent to Luz-Ardiden. On a course traditionally at the mercy of the Spaniard, Contador was outperformed by compatriot Sammy Sanchez and Jelle Vanendert, the Schlecks and Evans. McGee said Contadors dodgy right knee was a factor as the Schlecks took the points. Alberto is pretty scuffed up, McGee said. Falling knocks it out of them. It knocks the fluency out of them and they are not the same after it. It shows the nature of these guys because they are so highly tweaked. Hes feeling the effects of the falls. Once he hit that last climb, he didnt have what he expected or what we know Alberto can do. If its a question of fitness, the knee or general fatigue, who knows? Asked to reconcile Contadors failure to match the Schlecks and Evans on the opening day in the Pyrenees, McGee said: Its not a knockout blow its one in the ribs. Evans was content with an excellent performance. Apart from Frank Schleck, the Australian was the most impressive of the yellow jersey aspirants, covering every move apart from the older Schlecks escape. Contador claimed he was unconcerned after conceding more time.

Gilmore suffered the injury in a pileup earlier this month near the end of stage five in the Tour of Italy. The road worlds at Copenhagen are Gilmores major focus this year. Nothing will stand in the way of my goals for September 24 (the womens road race) in Denmark, she said. A fractured pelvis sounds serious and yes it is, but Im determined to let the bone heal quickly by complete immobilisation for the next 10 days. Records will go without supersuits, says Phelps Michael Phelps SUPERSTAR Michael Phelps has predicted world records will fall at this months world swimming championships despite supersuits being scrapped. The hi-tech suits were last legitimately worn in 2009 when 43 records were set at the farcical Rome world titles, with many doubting whether the marks would be broken for decades. Showing how much the suits slashed times, no records have been broken since they were outlawed at the start of 2010. But Phelps, training with the 80-strong USA swim team on the Gold Coast, believes Shanghai will host more world bests when the 2011 world titles start on July 24. The 14-time Olympic champion, an outspoken critic of the suits, said their absence had forced competitors to improve technique. I think they (records) definitely will (be broken), Phelps said yesterday.
