As if we didn't know who the best TT rider in the world was. The guy is just amazing. Nice ride by Zirbel.

Zorro,
Definitely agree with Cancellara but for men's road, I'll go with Sammy Sanchez.

Yes, Spartacus is a done deal. I'll be off in the woods this weekend when the road race goes down. Will have to catch up with it afterward.

Looks like about 200m climbing per lap, 19 laps; that would be about 12,500 ft.

I was hoping K. Armstrong would have pulled the double gold. But she just finished off the podium. Pretty good ride for her in the road race. Thought she had a shot catch the leader after the way she looked in the TT, but she didn't have it in her legs today.

I think Ballan might be able to pull off a repeat.

If Cancellara pulls this off I'd be super impressed, what a feat that would be...

looks like Valverde is speculating, rather giving Rodriguez a medal than pulling up Cancellara...
