    does the UCI test for saurkraut? it's a very effective TWE, or tailwind enhancement substance.

    Yeah I kinda had that idea in my head too, that is a huge advantage for a non-favorite. Cancellara had a bad day no doubt but Shum really destroyed them. I was thinking the winning time would be only a second or two faster than the number two guy. Do we ahve to start all this talk again? Ugh!

    This is the bed that sports have made - and we all get to lie in it. What do I mean? Everything is in question now. Well, things a bit out of norm. This 41 year old Olympic swimmer is being questioned even though she is having all kinds of voluntary tests. Someone that was not listed as a favorite (based on the VS crew) winning the first TT by a strong margin will be questioned.

    For those cycling fans that are somehow offended by such a question, you are wrong. if no one test positive in 15 years then you can be offended at such a question.
    Run, Bike, Run.

    A great ride for sure.

    It is sad that if you perform above expectations, you are thought of as a possible doper. That's where cycling is today. Tomorrow?????

    Shumacher also won the TT on a 2006 Bike!

    The new Specialized Transitions have the rear caliper mounted down low near the BB.

    Beat everybody on old gear. Wow

    That's a Walser, Gerolsteiner has been using those for 5 years.

    What did you call me? I resent being called a series of asterisks.

    Thank god it was a TT, otherwise he really would have decimated the field. What's the sense in drafting if you can't breathe.
    Has anyone else noticed that 47 is a magic number?

    interesting to note that pre-race bruyneel tipped schumacher for this stage. i'll leave you all to draw your own conclusions (presumably along previously drawn battle lines) on that one.
