    Sobering news at the Vuelta

    For all the yelling and complaining about drug use at these professional races and how it's ruining the world, they're still just races.

    Leonardo Piepoli's wife gave birth to their son but now has internal bleeding and her life is in danger. Piepoli immeadiately left the race to go be with her saying is was, "what a husband and father must do." I hope she pulls through this.

    Amen. Sad situation, but it helps us to see riders as human beings with their priorities in order.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    That's sad, but seriously... Why do you re-post what VeloNews or CyclingNews already said? You do it rather often...
