    So the bigger question is, what frame is he riding, it sure as hell ain't no Specialized, and it doesn't look like like Levi's Walser...interesting looking top tube and front brake behind the fork

    That's pretty incredible that he won the TT. Good for him. Maybe it will be his year to shine... Peta vs Hondo vs Cipo vs McEwen at the Tour.

    He is doing the Giro for obvious reasons, skipping the tour, and using the Vuelta as prep for words in Madrid which he thinks he can win.

    That's too bad, but it'd be great to see him get that rainbow jersey.
