    Want someone to cheer for?

    Then this just might be the man.

    "Basque rider Javier Otxoa (Saunier Duval), a former professional who held off a rampaging Lance Armstrong to win his only Tour stage at the top of Hautacam in 2000, won his third world title at the UCI Para-Cycling Time-Trial World Championship in Bordeaux. Otxoa clocked the best time in the Men CP 3 ITT on Saturday, crossing the finish line 37 seconds faster than his compatriot Maurice Eckhard and one minute faster than Great Britain's Darren Kenny.

    Otxoa, who sustained brain injury when he was struck by a car in 2001, also took the silver medal in the individual pursuit and bronze in the kilometre time trial in the track events earlier this week."

    Yes I did. The guy who ran them over was finally convicted last year. Can't remember what his punishment was though.

    Memory...wasn't the guy driving the car that hit them the DS of another team? Seems to me I recall that...

    So I looked it up. He is variously described as the "vice chancellor" and the "sporting director" of Malaga University. He was convicted and fined about $2500 and had his license suspended for one year.
