Tour of the Basque Country

Anybody watching the Tour of the Basque Country on Universal? Pretty good racing. Valverde leading Horner by one second going into the TT. Horner is showing something for all the TRS fans out there. Be interesting to see his form in July versus Levi's.

On topic, it has been a great tour to watch. Here's hoping that AV can pull it out

Don't give the spoiler! I'm waiting to watch it on Universal.

Just watched. Spoil away.

I'm now subscribed to the Chris Horner fan club. Hope he's not peaking to early in the season. Although, I'm concerned about his role in the TdF given team tactics of JB and LA.

On another note, Andy Schleck doesn't seem to have improved his TT skill much over last season.

Oh wait don't spoil the race for me, I am going to wait and watch my recorded VHS tapes over the next 2 days, but I'm going to hang out on bike forums profes and in this race thread expecting no one to spoil this race for me, that's reasonable right? If anyone spoils this race for me I will write a scathing paragraph in caps.. no one talk about the race that already happened until i'm all done watching it..

Great tour. I watched some on TV, some online live and one stage on replay online. Impressive coverage but not quite the TOC online that had full start-finish coverage with GPS (which was spotty but made it interesting). I wish there was Basque commentary on the live feed instead of helicopter and silence. The only plus was the crowd noise when the riders were on climbs, great stuff.
