Floyd's 7 second delay in the prologue - fate?

It's incredible to think that it's all coming down to the final time trial, and I'm sure that ol' Floyd wouldn't mind having those 6-7-8 seconds back from the Prologue when he was late into the start house due to last minute tire problems.

I'm pretty sure he'd be pretty pumped up to be only 22 seconds behind....


Tomorrow will be amazing. Can't wait to watch it on TV, but I'm going to be doing a sprint tri tomorrow and I just KNOW that somebody will tell me the results before I get to watch it on TV. Happens every time.

I wonder if it's true that Floyd is capable of picking up a couple of minutes on Periero and Sastre in a time trial?

Easily on Periero not as easily on Sastre but he will do it. Just as the 1980 Olympic hockey team beat the Russians, they still had to beat Finland for the Gold Medal, Floyd will seal the deal today.

It was to claim an early lead in the "King of the Malfunctions" competition.
