the break that snapped Georgia in two

holey shyte ...

14:38 EDT 106.2km/84km to go

Janez Brajkovic (Discovery Channel) , Gianni Meersman (Discovery Channel), Christian Vandevelde (Team CSC), Rubens Bertogliati (Saunier Duval - Prodir), David Canada Gracia (Saunier Duval - Prodir), Ivan Santaromita (Quick Step), Kevin Seeldrayers (Quick Step), Timothy Johnson (Health Net), Jeffry Louder (Health Net), Ciaran Power (Navigators Insurance), Lucas Euser (Team Slipstream), Tyler Wren (Colavita/Sutter Home), Scott Nydam (BMC) at 13:50.

The world turns upside down as lil' Lucas (once again) makes an excellent break in a big Tour. (who will chase?)

I'm sorry folks, but that boy knows how to peddle his bike and I hope Slipstream has a firm grip on what a good buy they've made.

If that group heads into the finish with over 5 minutes ... you could be looking at a very interesting jaunt up Brasstown.


and, the TT?


This is great to see ... the favorites put aside for riders who risk.

the break is 70k from the finish @ over 17 minutes.


... Disco bets on Brajkovic. CSC thinks Vandevelde can nail the TT. Saunier Duval has Canada to cook up Brasstown. And all the US teams are just fukkal happy not to be chasing.

fascinating.

23 minutes?! wholey moley is right.

Hnet did good to put two in that move.

Weird.

i'm picking Powers to win the stage.

i'm going to get some nutella and beef jerky right now.

jeninsb said...

Oopsy. Powers and gravity just had a disagreement.

I like Rubens B unless he killed himself with the little attack thingy.

Hnet's the only one with numbers.

Crapshoot.

Was there a crash in the final 100K? Maybe they'll give Levi the same time as the winner.

It could not happen to a nicer guy. Lucas rocks both on and off the bike. He was getting somewhat down a few weeks ago, being put in the domestique roll at Redlands and not being able to shine. He rode strong at the U.S. open, and now this. This should help to keep his stature in the team. And I'm sure that he'll be looking to bust a move on BTB.

About that Subaru Women's kit comment:
You have to admit, some women can make anything look good/sexy.

That gal is almost as cute as my wife...almost.
