It's amazing how strong all of the riders are for Postal. Right now they have 4 in the top 8. They may end up with 6 in about the top 15. Helps explain how strong they are in the rest of the race and how easy they make it look. (On a side note: can anyone explain to me what it means when someone has a post that just says "bump"? I'm not one of these cool internet geeks who knows all of the secret handshake type language.)

Maybe saying bump like saying "Word" or "Snap." Or if you're really square, you can say "ditto."

Check out Landis and Hincapie. Laying it down.

Its cause dead topics move down the forum page, so to bump it back up to the top of the page you have to make a post, so most people just say bump

I guess I'm too square to even say ditto. I guess it doesn't take me too long to type "I agree".

I wonder if USPS can overtake T Mobile in the team classification. They should have seven riders finish before the third one does for T Mobile (Santiago Botero).

I like my theory better. If someone says, "damn, man, did you see those guys haulin' butt at the end of the stage today?" I can just say "bump."

Bump is simply to BUMP a post back to the top of the posting list for all to see. No theory and no hidden mystery. This works especially well in forums where a thread is important but few people post but lots of threads are being made quickly. This important thread will get lost to page 2. Bumping it saves the day.

TTT

"To the Top" Not "Team Time Trial"

Amazing! Lance is absolutely amazing! I won't get to watch it until Monday because I'm at work all weekend, but it'll still be just as exciting.

Applause to Carlos Sastre who rode the time trial of his life to keep Levi from taking the 8th spot on GC. Levi's performance was probably a little sub-par today, but applause to him also for his fine top ten finish.

Phonak gets a rider into the top ten.

Virenque is in 15th, not bad.

Voeckler is behind Karpets and Casar in the White Jersey competition, but that was an interesting struggle to watch.

Robbie takes home the green tomorrow?

Phil or Paul were talking about postal being able to possibly win the team classification with some good rides today. They also said, 'they could win it again'. Did they win it last year? I too was kind of pulling for ullrich to come out and be really close to lance. Concerning the order of the riders, I thought two team mates weren't supposed to go back to back in a time trial like ullrich and kloden did. Was it not a big deal because they were spaced three minutes apart? I'm pretty happy to see azevedo up in the top five. That really awesome that postal and t mobile dominate the top five spots.

That's right, T-Mobile did win the teams competition with CSC ending up third. considering CSC was something of a favorite for this coming in, I think they must be a little disappointed. But having Basso on the podium should be some consolation.

5 from the USA in the top 12 of today's stage. Not bad for a country that pays little attention to bike racing.
