Despite his position in the race, he was still giving Lampre plenty of media exposure.

Cry away

Cunego has had a tough time since his illness and I'm sad to see him leave. He'll be back to crush some souls, heck he's still only 27, plenty of fight left in that kid.

I wonder what Barredo and Quick Step were offering Burghardt to let him take the stage win. Must have been tempting for Burghardt to call the team car for a consultation.

I'm over it rather quickly...he did win the Giro once, so he's got that going for him!

How can a "pro manager" know so little about pro racing?

Let me help you...

If you are already 19 and have not been noticed (probably for a good reason...lack of results), make sure you get a good education. Because there are kids over in Europe, and here, that are already there. They are already on espoir teams. Getting paid.

I know a kid on the US Under 23 team that dropped Contador in the Tour of Missouri. So you know what the competition is like. They have been over in Europe getting educated on what real bike racing is all about.

Racing 8-12 times a year won't get it done.

I once got paid to ride a bike rapidly. In Europe. And here. By 19, on a sponsored team, free bikes, etc. 11 years of racing already by then.

You will have a lot better shot at winning something in the computer game, "Pro Cycling Manager".
