    Are you seriously suggesting that I get up at 2:30 a.m. to watch coverage sitting in an office chair in front of my computer?

    Liking the look of Eddy the Boss today. Sagan, Chavanel, EBH, look for fireworks in the last 20km.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Hmm. How come I wasn't bright enough to mention Cancellara? Absolutely phenomenal.

    Next time, perhaps you might favour us with your predictions before the event?

    I shared them with the guy at work who now owes me a big bottle of Flemish Red Ale.

    I rode the whole thing on Saturday in 30 degree weather. You can get up and watch it (or at least record it).

    As for me, I'm making a sentimental pick for Phinney next week at Paris-Roubaix. No bet though.

    Cancellara is the bookies choice but I've nobody to bet with here and don't wager over the net. Great photo in previous post.

    Indeed. It's time cycling grew up and did away with the whole podium girl crap, though.

    Much of Europe has embraced the concept that women are people too. It's time that cycling abandoned this grotesque podium girl crap. It's all part of the same culture that decided Marianne Vos's victory in the women's tour of Flanders wasn't worth televising. Time to grow up.

    As for Sagan, that was pitiful. I hope someone in the Cannondale management has the balls to tell him.

    While I agree with the sentiment the role they play is podium girl. They're up there to be sexy. The very fabric of it is selling their hotness, presumably the reward for placing on the podium. It's not exactly like he grabbed the hot UCI official. I'd say to show a more enlightened viewpoint the argument might be something like....podium girls? why?

    Lol.
    I do wish they'd televise the women's race though.
    The podium girls remind us cycling-dumb Americans that cycling isn't gay.

    Emphasis mine.

    Really? You're really saying that because these girls are up there to look attractive, assaulting them is somehow more OK than assaulting some woman in a suit?

    This is exactly the problem. The subliminal message is that pretty girls are a reward for athletic prowess and that Sagan, the jock, is entitled to impose himself on them.

    Not that much different from saying that if your daughter dresses provocatively she is inviting an attack.

    no. That's a gross misrepresentation of what I wrote.

    I'm saying the exact opposite

    I'm willing to bet she doesn't view it as an attack. And therein lies the problem.

    She's making a living selling her sex appeal.

    You actually seem to think that podium girls are appropriate. I'm saying the whole view point is archaic.

    Win a couple of races and Americans want to go and reform everything. Let's see how the doping reforms and Iraq go before we get all buttinsky with their traditions. I imagine Cannondale gives a slap on the wrist as if a High School senior shooting spitwads in class.
