I don't know. I'll find out on 4/29 when NBC shows it.

Yep, know the result and it's looking good for a great LBL on Sunday.

"maybe" is, like Contador, back. seems like we've turned the wayback machine back about 3-4 years. what with Contador, and Gilbert, and "maybe" showing their former winning abilities.

really looking forward to Liege, Bastogne (sp?), Liege.

wouldn't be surprised of a couple of the above mentioned, were to collectively pick up all the major tours this year.

I saw this race (taped from NBC sports HD) and 2 guys in front got caught with like 10 miles to go. It's amazing they made it almost the whole race. Usually in races I've seen the peleton pulls in the break much sooner. The bigger dude up front was a monster.
