Vasa (Tour de France spoiler within)

Vino is Wasa.



Much like Pcad. Pcad is not a Tdf pre-race favorite however.

Kindly spare me the 'it's a long race' diatribes. Vino became Vasa today.

By the way, you were all warned about what would happen if Pcad took a day off. Fasten your BF Weenie Belts.

Come on, give Vino a break. I'd like to see you hang as well as he has following a crash the magnitude of his.

Vasa I say. Over 8 minutes off the Yellow Jersey, over 4 minutes behind Levi, 5:20 behind Cadel and Iban Mayo.

On the other hand Vino could potentially close that time gap if all the other race favorites simultaneously hurtle off a Pyrenean mountain curve. And that would be if the angry elf was climbing as well as the Big Boys.

He is not.

I dont think pcad is saying he is out classed but he is certainly out gunned in his current shape. He is battered, bruised, stitched and thats the point. He cant hold on to those guys on diminished form.

I'm not saying he is a wussy. I LOVE Vino. I'm ROOTING for Vino.

Sadly, in this event, this month, he is no longer Vino. He is Vasa. I hope I am incorrect.
