TdG TT not a spoiler

If you want to see some suprising results so far, check out cyclingnews.com or velonews.com real time coverage. Somebody was quite a bit faster than someone who was supposed to beat him.

Sure.... he can climb but he can't TT. Uh... right. 4 seconds slower than one TT specialist and put 20 seconds on another.

Praying Mantise 54'14.49
Tommy Boy 54'18.24
Z in 54'38.40

Man I can't believe Popo didn't land a better time the way the live report was blowing smoke up his butt...I wonder if he poped.

It could be that he was passing sprinters and that made him look so darn fast. Since there was nothing before this TT to shake up the GC, I am sure a lot of the fast TTers were passing people.
