Tour of Austria:
Danielson as a TT specialist, eh?
Saturday's stage is the 31 km time trial on a flat course around Podersdorf am See. "I will concentrate fully on the time trial and give it my all," said Pfannberger, who leads the GC by only 56 seconds ahead of time trial specialist Tom Danielson of Discovery Channel. CN
Tommy's probably doing the long build-up to the Vuelta, where he'll be the team leader. Lucky bastard.
But still - for honor's sake, you gotta go full-gas for this TT, TD. And ... come on - to be beaten by a guy with the name of Pfannberger?

ok ~ speaking of TT specialists ... might as well throw out some predictions for tomorrow's Tour stage.
yumpinyimminy - 52km?
that's a bloody hard TT, folks. And, today's 'sprinter stage' ended up averaging 45km an hour. Chilluns ... that is muthafrickin' fast.
almost a week into a Tour, and they averaged over 28mph for a 118 miles.
mama mia. let's just hope the race bible lied.

Geezer Nationals is next week.
Last year Williams came past me in the final 20 meters of the crit for the win, after I'd laid off the attacks to keep my teammate on the break - who had a mechanical, turns out. This year he's already nabbed himself a bronze in the Elite TT, so he's on form fo' sure.
