    Good story as at 41 he's the oldest man to win a GT. Impressive since he suffered a concussion in the TdF as well as a serious blood clot in his leg. For you climbing wanna bees, I read that he's 5'11" 135lbs. Man I need to lose a little weight...

    Chris Horner has a smile for a suffer face and a soaring bird victory salute. Hard to tell which is more cool.
    His is inspiring.
