Who won ONE stage (ie 1/21st of the overall race) but finished over an
HOUR behind The Leader of the overall race. How is THAT impressive?

PS - he beat the clock by much more than anyone else could or did.

FWIW, I'm in two different drawings that have first prizes of
$200,000+US small airplanes.

I'd have to cough up $70-80k to accept the prize.

If I win, I'll figure something out! <G>
