    Seems to be in spanking form. Is it a mountain or a ridge?
    Whats he riding of the longer races?

    I wonder if an aero helmet and aero bars would have been a smidgen
    faster, for Valverde to beat Savoldelli, or was this course so short
    and technical that they wouldn't have mattered? In the pics, all other
    riders except Guennadi Mikhailov had aero bars and helmets, yet none of
    them were down in the bars... Granted, the pics were probably all
    taken at the technical corners. Maybe Valverde was faster than he
    would've been with the aero stuff because he didn't have to worry about
    coming out of the bars, getting back in, etc.
