Disco's "team leader" for Georgia ... yeah, right.
"Sure, Tom will be disappointed but that's the way the race goes. If you have a breakaway and you have two guys in there, and the rest of the teams decide they don't want to win the race, that's too bad. They are the losers." BruyneelI guess there is a difference in Disco now ... "We had Brajkovic who was one of three protected riders in this race." They are racing for the win and not for a rider. You've got to respect that ... but that means if you're TommyD ... you've got to pull out the knives and cut open your own chances.
You've got to go get it Tom.

Priority Health and JitJoe's ... i can't believe they weren't chasing yesterday. If you belong there, ride like it gawdamit. With Tinkoff and Lotto - there would have been assistance. And what's more, there's the chance that Disco, Saunier, and Toyota finish it off if you get them close.
i'm sorry ... but that was amateur racing in the big leagues.
we'll see what Ben has to say about it, but ... i'm disappointed.

Us local poseurs have the Wente weekend coming up. It looks like there won't be many local Pro's showing up ... maybe HNutz Kilem or maybe an odd SoCal based pro up for some miles. Should be a good day for AJM to pulverize the universe. AJM is flying right now, folks ... please, Specialized ~ send him to Taiwan for a couple weeks to kill his fitness. Otherwise, the poor NorCal proseys are in for a bucket full of spank.
In the women? PROMAN and ValueAct have to be the favorites right now. Touchstone will have their climbers in full effect ... but, this is a race for the fit, not the pure climbers. And, after all the NRC jaunts of late ~ i'm thinking this could be the breakout of riders like VAC's Brown or PROMAN's Zell.
And us geezers are going to be banging heads like a bunch of rutting mountain goats. Oy ... it's so stocked this weekend. All the teams are up and fielding full guns. shit ... we're so behind the 8-ball for this one.
ah well ... might as well attack them fukkers.
