    Talansky

    Talansky has been getting stronger (while teammate Dan Martin has been fading). Andrew is in 12th position following Stage 19, just 16 seconds out of 10th. Kwiatkowski and Ten Dam, in 10th and 11th, were both a minute and a half behind Talansky today, and seem to be fading. I think Talansky is going to make the top ten.

    I'm pretty stoked about this kid's showing in his debut TDF even if he doesn't make the top 10. When I consider the past riders in their debut that don't finish the race (including Armstrong) I, for one, am pretty impressed at how strong he looks at this late point in the race. The young riders in general are looking strong nowadays.

    In fact I'm kinda stoked about the whole team despite Hesjedal's unfortunate fractured rib. I even bought a Garmin Sharp T shirt like an enthusiastic kid, lol. And I don't own a stitch of team kit and never have.

    He should make 10th position. I'd like to see Garmin get one rider in the top ten.

    Dan Martin is obviously struggling just to finish in Paris but he will be one of the few happy riders with a stage win.

    Sounds like he's a bit under the weather.

    He has his stage win, anything else would be gravy at this stage I guess.

    I bought a Garmin GPS. I like to support the sponsors, particularly my favorite team.

    Lots of excitement for the white jersey and years to come.

    I'm starting to look over their stuff and might get something I can tuck away in my pack. Mind you I'm a Luddite who never owned so much as a cadence meter and carry a foldup street map in a plastic bag in my touring shorts pocket. But I might hafta upgrade this winter along with a tear-down and maintenance of my lugged steel ride.....Nothing on the bike though. That ain't period kosher, lol.
