    Sounds right. I was going to point out reservists are far from real cops. Probably only a matter of due process that resulted in a suspension instead of directly to dropped.

    How could someone get that far off? Best team finish ever, at least in any trade team era. It is like calling the 1969 TDF a close race!

    EDIT: I think I have found what he was talking about. 1980....

    Yup. Makes a huge difference whose pace the climb is made at and if racing just where the action starts, as in whose favored terrain it is in. Much harder (perhaps more mentally than physically) to...

    I could have sworn that Phil said something about the last retiring Champion's team ending up with Just 3 riders in Paris and that he said Hinault during one of the weekend stages.

    Of course it...

    I'm inclined to think so also. And by 75 most have learned patience and even if he is quite a bit faster than that on the MUP of open sections of sidewalk he likely slows on less open sidewalk.

    I can still get to that speed. But when I do I'd hardly call it slow for a bike. At 8 times what I'd expect for a pedestrian I'd only call it slow for a racer on a decent.

    Just for the record, while I've never heard 'looking good in that spandex' I was there when a very good cyclist was propositioned by a call full of young ladies.

    I believe the cutoff time is 1.25 times the time of the winner.

    That is makeable.

    IF the peloton favors a woman riding the tour one could finish and stay within the time limits. If not there...

    So the original accusation was he is finishing every stage looking 'fresh', but once it is pointed out that he was exhausted on one stage that serves just as well as 'evidence'

    I'm going to wait to see how Fuglsang is tomorrow. I said before that Astana is not strong enough to just defend Yellow. I Still say that. But now one less man to mark and once Fuglsang is near full...

    Most likely. But lets say it is part way down the final decent, they may never get the chance. Also remember each team has only 2 cars. Iftehy have a rider off the front and a contender for the GC in...

    Not a surprise. Given something bad happened in this area. That is an easy section of road. Housing developments on both sides and only a couple of entrances per mile. The very kind of place where...

    I agree. I live in Los Angeles, home of the oldest freeway in the world, the northern part of the Pasadena Freeway. The point is that there is an oldest. The current freeway system...

    I guess it somewhat depends on what one calls a bike freeway.

    I'd say one actually exists at UCSB. Or perhaps more then one. I'm only sure of one leading into campus.

    I can think of a couple...

    And there are several killer stages coming up.

    I do not think Astana is a strong enough team to defend the Jersey with the number of riders close. By defend I mean purely defend. I think they...

    If you just mean top names out it is a lot more common than one might think. Though usually it is out before the start rather than by crash.

    Remember Alberto is on a bit of a comeback of sorts....

    Considering that Nibali got most of his lead on a flat stage where Astana was paying attention and got off the front I don't think the odds of someone else doing it to them are very good, unless...

    It could be just a harmonic convergence. But I find that doubtful.

    Joey maxed out at 120 Lbs. He would jump and twist like a cat when trying to catch flies, rear feet close to 2 feet off the ground.
