    Jens Voigt finished the stage 7 TT in last place. Think that was an accident, I don't. Voigt has the strength to finish ahead of the sprinters if he times his breakaway correctly.

    Anything to do with those damnable thunderstorms that stranded me in the DFW airport the other day? Or did the lovely Texas heat melt the cables?

    What's up with Boonen? Mistiming sprints, giving up places when realizing he won't win... what is UP?

    Maybe he just peaked too early in the year whereas the Pimpernel seems to have peaked at just the right time.

    He was born in Lyon, but his father is Italian; hence the Italian surname.

    Given the tailwind, did you need to draft?

    Riding with hands on the middle bars in the middle of the peloton

    Bob Roll said when he rode in the middle of a large peloton he preferred to put his hands in the middle of the bars well away from the brakes so everyone would be freaked out enough to give him more room. It’s hard to tell if he was joking or serious and if there was real method to his madness. Anyone know if he really did that, and if so did the other riders back away?
