    ToC stage 2 - no spoiler

    Hey guys, if you aren't watching right now, turn it on. It's getting good!
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    DG is whipping the field on L.A.'s time trial bike? Guess I'll have to watch the re-run tonight.

    Just watch it tonight when you get home. Or check out the live text coverage at velonews. A very exciting race from the rainy, foggy start in Sausalito as they crossed the Golden Gate bridge to the rain and debris covered climbs along the Pacific Coast Hwy to the explosive tactical moves on the final climb of Bonny Doon to the scarily fast descent to the finish in Santa Cruz. What a great race!

    Great race so far and think Armstrong is doing great. To bad the weather is so bad.

    Memorable scenic (though very wet) start for Stage 2 as the peloton crossed the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, and a great finish beachside in Santa Cruz. No offense, but I am glad I didn't pay $500 to ride across the bridge behind Lance & Co. The race must have gone right past SKT's house in Pacifica! I thought the commentators did a good job of keeping viewers' interest when the video feed from the race course was temporarily unavailable due to the weather.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"

    In a way, though, I think the awful weather makes it a more interesting race.

    Brought back memories of when one of my kids were racing motocross, but cleaner

    Ribby and I agree that this was an excellent choice.

    It looks like they will work. They look like I'll have enough room for my hands anyway.
    Oh, I know it's a heck of a way to lose weight, but you look pretty good.
