    Pretty cool.
    ANother American up and coming stage racer.
    Too bad he's on a (phew) French team.
    Maybe Disco will get him back.

    Why is it that the US produces so many good stage racers but not many if any one day racers?

    What big one day races have Amercians won except by stage racers...
    LBL: 1 Tyler
    Fleche: 1 Lance
    Worlds: 2 Lemond and 1 Lance
    Paris Roubaix: zero
    Flanders: zero
    MSR: zero (Fred Rodriguez was close to Cipo)
    Zurich: zero
    San Sebastien: 1 Lance
    Lombardia: zero

    compared with
    Giro: Hampsten, Tyler 2nd, Greg 3rd
    Dauphine: Tyler and Lance and Lemond
    TdSuisse: Hampsten, Lance
    TdF: Lemond+Lance 10 wins
    Vuelta: Lance 4th
    Paris Nice: Julich
    Langkawi: Danielson
    should we count DuPont and Georgia and Coors Classic?

    Yeah he is a great talent. I saw him during the Tour of Switzerland and The Tour of Germany, here is a picture of him that i made during the last stage of the Tour Of Switzerland (at the Furkapass) 2005.
