    AToC Stage 6 -Spoilers-

    The riders are off. Who's going to make the big break today? I'm hoping for Jens Voigt as I gotta root for my countryman

    Looks like decent weather and a relatively flat stage.

    These announcers are just idiots. I wish they would pay attention to the pictures. They would make half of the stupid comments they do.

    Are you on the cycling.tv site, or the official AToC page?

    So they've said that Bryce Mead has dropped out, in the first hour or so of the race. Cyclingnews said the same thing, I believe.

    And now they're saying that he's still in the race. What gives?

    That wheel folding was incredible. Just looked like a piece of paper folding under Freddie.

    He's from the Isle of Man, the people their steal the tails from all the cats there as they are a special ingredient in a secret potent 'manxbrew' that works the same way a shot of Nitrous Oxide does in a car engine.

    Just one sip and BAM!

    During the sprint did anyone notice team High road's "other" sprinter sit up way early effectively blocking Cippo? I wonder if that was an intentional move or........

    What do you guys think about Cozza?
    I was watching him all day (Rock racing should adopt the 'tache - they would really look bad), and usually he looked like he was going to pass out at any moment. Near the middle of their escape, he was massaging his guads. When he took his pulls, his upper body was rocking like hell. Yet close to the finish, he tried to attack his companions and I think even opened a bit of a gap.
    Was he simply pretending to be exhausted?
