janny-poo done won hisself the long Giro TT ...
Boy, oh boy ... that takes some pressure of der Kaiser, that's for sure. Weirdly, now he's back as a Tour contender, immediate-like. Oh, those fickle cycling critics.
Basso is a dreamcicle, true.

Oh sad day!
It looks as though there is something going weirdly with my faithful steel steed.
How many thousands of miles have you carried my weight, dear friend?
How many mountains flown over? curves carved through? lines sprinted for?
Perhaps it was the 13,000 bunny hops.
And so, I go in search of a cheapy-cheapy frame n' fork ... something close to the right geometry to finish out the season. 54.5cm top tube, 72 degree seat angle ... yeah right.
