    The Tour of Californ I A

    Who is going to watch it? And what are your bets on the wiener? I've got Levy for a three-peat.

    On our way back through town today he told me where he's going to 'make his move,' but I don't think he'll take the overall. Said he's stronger now than he's been in 2 years though, so he could take a stage.

    I've got my money on Levi again, even though I prefer someone else to take it. Anyone else really.

    Sometimes people who link to past posts are rather toolish.

    Sean Kelly is a god, sure a god that I can't understand a word he is saying, but a god nonetheless.

    you've got to figure that levi will be more motivated than ever since he'll be riding for lance and contador in the the grand tours and he ain't getting any younger.

    Yeah Tuft would be cool.

    I'm pulling for Zabriskie. I'm hoping this is his year to FINALLY realise his enormous potential.
    I'd be doing myself, and you guys, a disservice if I didn't ride the hell out of this thing!

    I'll be there Saturday at the Prologue wearing my "Let Levi Ride '08" t-shirt that I got last year.

    Levi FTW.

    Astana will back the highest placed CG guy that has the best chance of winning. If Levi dosent show they will go down the list to the next best placed cyclist.

    If you are on a pro team and only have one egg.... then yes. Other than that no.

    Because his schedule has been crazy for the past 5 months (dope trials, securing sponsors/teams, speaking engagements) he hasn't been able to give 100% effort towards training. Friend of mine keeps in contact with him and said this... Makes sense to me.

    That dosent mean it wont show up and race hard. Just that his fitness might not be there to compete with those guys (yet).

    Watching the finish in Santa Rosa on Sunday, then riding up Altamont to watch the peloton come over on Tuesday.

    I'll be the guy with the Bear Republic flag in front of the windmills... I figure that's my best shot of getting on TV.
