    Hard to bet against Fabian.

    I'm looking for David Millar to have a very good showing tomorrow. It's a shame Zabriskie isn't going to get a shot at this. With the strong finish of Frishkorn today I think Garmin-Chipotle will be pretty amped up.

    More interesting will be how much time Valverde and Evans put into Ricco. His driveling will know no bounds when the results are in tomorrow...

    hope against hope.

    don't worry, i'm sure the only reason why he won't win it is because he's clean, and everyone else isn't.

    The only way you could know that is if you administer dope for everyone on tour except millar...
    And even than there would be some doubt as to whether he's found a better source than you or not...

    Can't disagree. I fully expect that he'll say something pretty close to that when he finishes a minute behind the winner. Still, I think he'll place well.

    Yeah. He's there for the white jersey. At least that's what he's going to say because his team, the other teams, Santa Claus and his own bike are working against him.....

    If Wiggins were here, I'd pick him, but Cancellara is going to be my pick for the win. I'm also hoping for a strong showing from Slipstream.

    Maybe a surprise Top 5 from a Liquigas rider.

    three thoughts...

    first, what are the little wires sticking out the back of a lot of the TT helmets? is that the antenna for race radio? or something to do with drag...

    second, electronic dura ace is making an appearance on gerolsteiner team bikes from what i can tell

    third, what is the new helmet from giro that Caisse D'Epargne is breaking out? definitely not the shape of the advantage line, and have a black visor on it as well.

    . . . . . . . . . . .and he just finished 73rd in the time trial. With some of the big guns still to come out.

    Wonder who he can blame it on this time?

    Was it just the camera angle or did Cancellara come within inches of running over a guy just a few minutes into his ride? It was an older guy with a brown shirt on who looked like he was trying to take a photo. The commentators said nothing about it but it looked waaaaay close to me.

    It's pretty cool to see the Verses shots from Millar's car but man is Johnathan V. annoying. He sounds like a dentist. Could he be less into it?

    i'm guessing that's the technique that millar responds to. some perform best in silence, some do best when being yelled at, some do best using a dentist, businesslike approach. i'll bet behind somebody else on the team, johnathan is screaming

    At least you're at home, watching. I'm at work, grateful that the boss doesn't mind that I've got the Velonews reporting going on in the background.

    +1. They could just spend 15 minutes showing the bikes and TT kits and then flash forward to the finish and I would be good.

    I read that Hincapie would be on a new TT bike but wtf is on his head tube:



    Interesting, because the rest of the bike looks like a P3C.
    Currently riding on a 2011 Specialized Tarmac Pro SL3 with SRAM Red and either Roval Fusee SL or MAVIC Carbone SL wheels. Check out my blog: http://sigberto.blogspot.com and give Gamjams some love, too.
