    Vuelta Stage 2 - Granada to Cordoba

    Temperatures were 37 C (that's body temperature for you Farenheit types) and sometimes nearer 40 C for the stage.

    De La Fuente had a long escape with one other rider for awhile, and then alone, but was caught with about 20 Km to go. He had gained as much as six minutes, but in the end was passed by Gorka Gonzales and Kohl on the Cat 2 climb near the end. They were joined by Aitor Osa, who then attacked.

    Those three were passed by Bertagnolli and McGee, who were joined soon after by Flecha with less than 4 Km to go. That was the order when they finished.

    Leaders overall after two stages are McGee, Bertagnolli +22", and Flecha +31"

    Sounds like McGee was strong today. Smart racing by Bertagnolli to get the win.

    Looks like the crankarm came loose from the bottom bracket. No sign or word of a crash. That'll make the sojourn into the coffee shop problematic.

    I've never seen that happen before. Hopeully for the mechanic it was a product failure.
    i may have overreacted

    I just realized the right, drive side crank arm and chainrings...lying in the road? Dura Ace 10 uses some sort of integrated crankset + bottom bracket right? Strange.

    No, it looks like its still attached to bike (I assume due to the chain). If you look closely, the chainring is lying on top of the cassette.


    Note to self: Do not upgrade to Dura Ace 10.
