One is the Norwegian champion's jersey (Kurt Asle-Arvesen), and the other is the Danish champion's jersey (Nicki Sorensen).

This is the most absurd commentating I've heard yet.

3.5k 4:35s gap to a 3 man chase and they're talking about how they need to work together so they don't get caught.

I thought the cat and mouse game between Burghardt and Berrado was fun to watch. Very different from previous finishes. Other than that, pretty boring.

National champions wear their country colors. So CSC has the Denmark and Norway road race champions and the yellow and white jersey. Chancellara has the World Champion jersey for the TT.

Frank Schleck is also the Luxembourg national road race champ.

Lucky for him that people that know alot more about cycling put alot more faith in him than you do.
Wasn't he 10th or 12th before his crash today, that's not bad.
Just saying your comments don't show much class, he showed some heart today.

Considering that there is not a chance in he!! that you'll ever be able to do what he's done, that's a pretty idiotic statement. But looking at your profile explains much.

You need to spend more time Tugging your undoubtedly tiny Banana and less time talking about things you know nothing about.

I'm gonna cry if Cunego drops out. He was having a rough Tour and had every justification for quitting a week ago. But he's hung in there. He is the #1 rider on his team and realizes that sponsorship dollars aren't passed out just so that he can quit a race when things aren't going well. Despite his position in the race, he was still giving Lampre plenty of media exposure.
