    By the way.. the Wikepedia part about not riding the Vuelta because of the worlds is a joke... Lots of riders are ring the first two weeks of the Vuelta to prepare for the worlds.

    At home, my Swiss colleague will do the tour de Suisse. I will work on the final details for our logistics for Le tour.

    Jan will be in Berlin tomorrow, his brother will open a bike shop. Jens Heppner and Jan will do 2 autograph sessions.

    On June 26 I finally will do the photo shooting with a former tdf winner ;)

    For some reason I thought you might try and be at the TDS first day. I am sure I will get a stage by stage update via my Swiss friend.
    That tdf winner will have a birthday to celebrate soon, but not his.

    Actually I planned to go (tds) but I have to programme a new databank for tdf pictures for an US client and as my colleague can't programme and lives in Suisse anyway he will do Suisse completly now.

    If I have to listen to anymore of Duffers inane drivel I might commit suicide. He better not be doing the eurosport commentary for the TdF.

    But anyway, at least the race is interesting, that climb is ripping it to pieces. Good call by the Dauphine organisers to include it.

    How are you watching the race Eldrack? Is it an internet feed, or is some TV network covering the race?

    www.cyclingfans.com has all the necessary links. However the two video links (tv2sport.dk and france3.fr) are Europe only I think. Possibly the same may apply to the Eurosport audio. I'm sure cycling.tv are showing it as well, but you have to pay for that so I use the free ones instead :p .

    They were talking about his new position and his comments on cycling.tv. Notice I didn't say the only reason, just adding info to the discussion. I realize if we aren't talking about an Aussie rider there has to be drugs involved where you're concerned.

    When did he come around? Seems I remember him defending Evans to the end? Maybe I have him confused? If so I was wrong. However, this site is so funny about USPS, Disco and all those associated thinking they had/have some super special doping program vs the rest of the teams. They all use drugs.

    Gesink could always tt.

    6th jnr world champs.

    just a matter of development.

    Cant compare a 20 yo in the tt, to a 25 yo pro, who is a rouleur.

    Yes he is farking nauseating ! I can't cope with the fact he openly waffles saying shite like "now why is he attacking, whats the point of attacking, he might be just stretching his legs, you the riders do that, they attacking just to get the cobwebs out" - all this shite goes on when its obvious why someone is attacking......

    Yes if he is doing commentary for the Tour I will learn French in 1 week and listen to their coverage....... fark he is bad. Last year he was "special comments" in the studio and that was bad enough..........

    Flecha for tomorrow? After failing to get into the break today he seemed to ease up. Maybe Hincapie will fancy having a go too?

    What is Gesink talking about here ?

    Is he saying Levi is doping ?
    _____

    The young Dutchman who already impressed everybody during Paris-Nice when he took the yellow jersey at the top of the Mont Ventoux was a little bit frustrated at the stage finish in Annemasse. "There wasn't a high tempo on the climb," he noted. "A few times I could hear Levi Leipheimer saying that the landscape was beautiful. It means a few of us weren't racing flat out."

    I thought he was saying that Levi wasn't racing flat out. That he needs a high tempo to have an advantage over the kickers I suppose. As to why Levi wasn't at threshold... no idea.

    Well, Levi lost over a minute of time today so perhaps he can't race flat out :p .
