    He's better off - he doesn't need that Albatross hanging over him!

    Given Kesslers season - I'm not surprised that he's tired.
    He's had a great season.

    Thanks for the update.

    @mpm: www.cycling.tv?


    As an attachment the preliminary startlist. I know that Klöden already announced that he will only start at the ITT.

    In the US, wcsn.com on the internet, and it is also shown on RAI-I tv on cable.

    Outside the US, cycling.tv has the internet rights, unsure about TV coverage.

    I watched todays men's roadrace - and what a superb race it was.

    The Salzberg course was bathed in sunshine and the route made demands of the entire peloton.

    Paolo Bettini confirmed his reputation as the best roadman of the current generation when he pipped "evergreen" Erik Zabel in the final sprint.
    Zabel decided with 100 metres to go to try to go for the win but Bettini who'd put in an attack on the Rennenberg (spelling?) managed to just get the extra yard at the finish line.

    A great race from the beginning - it was really great viewing.

    Great cycling day, great race... The best this year (well, if not the best than the most unpredictable). Bettini was the man in form and he proved that. Personally, I don't like him (mostly becase of that sprint incident with Baden Cooke at Giro), but today he was unbeatable... He attacked on the last climb, blew the field, than he was caught and he still had strenght and will to attack and outsprint his opponents. Great victory, great ride, great race. He deserved to wear rainbow jersey.

    The race was absolutely fantastic. Here a pic of the winner!

    I am glad Zabel didn't win... He said he would have retired immediatly if he would have won...

    It was a great race and reason being were most of the teams were smaller than nine... which gives good support to reduce the number of riders per team in the ProTour.... makes for more exciting racing..... I really thought Zabel had it from the head on shot.... Miller could of won as well if the course was a little more difficult in the final run in.....
