What the heck happened to George? I was watching as he started up Sierra Rd
before everyone else and then he simply disappeared. What happened to him?

Bonk? He was struggling as he was passed by the Levi, Horner, Gesink,
Zabrisk group on bottom half of Sierra Rd.

Curious that they didn't show that on the ToC website running coverage.

On the live video they showed George being passed by the Levi gorup on
Sierra. It happened pretty quickly once they hit Sierra.

I saw that a couple of minutes ago when they showed the actual TV coverage.
But on the web coverage that part wasn't even hinted at. And Frankie and
friend were even wondering what happened.

Well if you were watching carefully it was obvious what happend. Of
course with the speed difference between George and the Levi group if
you blinked at the wrong moment you missed George getting caught and
dropped. The web commentators don't always pay close attention to what
is going on.

I was watching it on ToC website as well and the announcers were talking
about it for several minutes about how the last time they'd seen George he
was going up Sierra Grade and had no idea what happened to him.

Tom,
I saw it on Versus...and I've got it on tape...do you want me to
review it to see if Phil and Paul noted that George seemed to be 'in a
spot of bother'? The way I recall it they were too busy raving about
Levi and Gesink and got sidetracked into the Horner/Zabriske sub
plot. Somehow George ended up with Most Aggresive Rider. THAT was a
gift, no?

Curious George couldn't shut down Domestique Rollin, but he's gonna
contend with the best in 5 weeks? He got some work to do.

Dumbass -


2 different styles of racing. 2 different types of riders.

The other guys who will be good in 5 weeks wouldn't have been good on
those climbs either.


thanks,

K. Gringioni.

Actually that was the Phil and Paul cut I saw where Hincapie was passed so
fast that if you blinked you missed it.

Cyclingnews had it on their live...

13:56 PST
"There's a Rock Racing rider up here too, most likely Pena. They're
down to six as Hincapie is Goo-oooo-ooone."

thanks,

K. Gringioni.

You're confused about what stage hunter is referencing...

You are correct about stage 3, except that the other guys who will be good
in 5 weeks would have known that as well. They would not have attacked like
a toddler throwing a pointless fit in the check out line.

The stage he's referring to was 4 and those same others who will be good in
5 weeks would have covered Rollin's move and rolled him up like a carpet.

George is a good man, but he must suck at checkers and tic tack toe.
