AToC Stage 4 -SPOILER-

The commentators think that Voigt is going to start a ferocious attack today to eradicate his 7' deficit.
Should be another interesting stage.

This break is working together wonderfully. It may make it if they keep up this rolling paceline.

just got back from riding in the rain (not there, but close enough). It's not cold out, so much, but rain sucks.

It sounds like it is windy there, though, which doesn't make anybody happy.

+1 on loving the coverage

ahhhahahah tom danielson gave up.

He popped in no man's land, couldn't hang onto the peleton and is riding in the team car. F--- it, I wouldn't want to do 135 miles in that stuff.

Danielson abandons already. I hate that f*cker. He's always sick or hurt or something. He's almost the American version of VDB.

If you're getting paid to do that stuff, you better perform. I don't think you can just call it quits for no reason.

Training pace? Christ, I wish that was my training pace, that is anaerobic for me...

Gosh, I missed the part where Danielson tried to kill himself, had his dog on EPO, rode under a fake name, threatened someone with a gun, tried to pass himself off as Tom Boonen, or had multiple DUI's. But I have to admit that I do not read the Durango newspaper.

Dominic Rollin has clearly had his brains frozen up. Struggling to put on a vest for like 5 minutes and still failing. Man it must be cold there.

Oh, ok...I had this image of the guy shooting up a poor dog. And in this day and age, you can't just dismiss something like that, can you...
