    He should be back by then. The VeloNews article said he should be ready for the spring classics.

    I hope Slipstream comes to the Tour de Georgia.

    Edit: I just found out that California is in February, so I guess there's a good chance he won't be ready.

    Paris-Roubaix with a broken collarbone = Instant badass.

    I hope he gets some serious attention from the ladies after he pulls that one off.

    Winning Paris-Roubaix already makes him a badass...this just takes it to a new level.

    heartbreaking! they were in great position to take the stage with Sutton third back! He's paying dearly for that one.

    I hope he is well for the ToC. He is optimistic, thats good.

    Yeah, he more or less said it was his fault. That sucks, too. In fact, I guess I'm a bigger Slipstream fan than I thought, cause I let go quite a stream of profanity when I saw this news.
