Another favorite (Evans) lost so much time after a flat tire that he's no longer a factor to win, but maybe he can creep back up to a podium position in today's time trial. Sánchez and Basso are 2nd and 3rd in the race (as of yesterday), more because of bad luck to the competitors rather than great riding of their own.
oh ok, yeah i think that the setup for the Vuelta was awesome. i really wish we had the same players in the Vuelta as the tour. stupid world championships. yeah i was really pulling for Gesink. bummer.

Let's not be too harsh on the US. The US is pretty good at making fat people.

I can't understand why this thread was started with comments about a "race." The problems for riders in this case were caused by at least three individuals that showed extremely poor judgment or out right stupidity.

What's important here - is to ask if these officials will be "let go" from any future race responsibilities.
There are always going to "better" or "worse" racing venues and opportunities. I doubt that the TOM will ever be one of the best - or the worst.....
