Stage 16 discussion

Hey all,

Did anybody else notice Paolo Bettini's expression just after he sprinted for second? I think he was counting on that stage going to a sprinter (him) and he looked kinda ticked. Kinda like he wanted to raise his hands and go "look at me" but then he thought, oh I got second, damn!

Go Tyler.

peas,

Steve

I missed that. OTOH, did anybody notice the rider on Zabel's right (I believe it was an FB jersey) pat Zabel on the back just after being beaten in the sprint?

That's uncanny.

At one point, when the peloton was trying to chase Qua, er, Tyler down, the entire peloton was strung out in a huge paceline. He made 'em work (his average speed ws 27 mph for the last 40 miles).
