- good lord i love the kid, but doesn't Soler look like a lanky-ass cookarocha on his bike? I mean, the sloping, angular helmet ... the buggy sunglasses, the hunched shoulders and gangly appendages sprouting in every direction...
maybe we need to nominate him for some kind of "pro-cyclist super-makeover" reality show? Him and any former eastern block rider that attempts to sport a mullet and/or Wiggins chops.
- what was up with Millar and that sun-allergy bit? did you see how much sunscreen that cat was wearing? jayzus ... talk about your walking Noxema billboard.
You've got to wonder ... why now? What's different about this tour than the others he's done? I mean, you can't get much more exposed and sun-baked than the Vuelta in late summer, fer chrissakes.
is there EPO with a UV rating he's missing out on nowadawys?
- why do i always get the horniest for her when that time of the month arrives?
- Rabobank ... could you get any more "this is my job" than these guys?
It seems abundantly clear that these boys don't need to like each other to do their jobs. And they are doing their job exceptionally well. That kid-in-need-of-hairnet Dekker is a one-man choochoo train. And, it was rather impressive the way that Menchov exploded after getting Bawkabawk to the base of the Au'beast today.
but ... you just don't imagine there are many post stage high-5s and "woo-hoos!" in the team bus with these fellers.
all business. mercenaries. diamond merchants. conquerors.
- OH, FOR FUKS SAKE?
Now Rasmussen and the Raboroids have been pulled form the Tour, as well.
Circus? Rock-bottom? whateva.
i've got work to do.
