    On a TT, yes. On a road stage, ranges from as little as 3% (rare!) to as much as 22% depending on winner's average speed and the category of parcour (e.g. flat or hilly). Sweet spot in the 10-15%...

    Speaking of coming out of nowhere given the past few tours, I don't know whose blood is in my bag, but it is working. For now. Still plenty of race left. Fingers crossed.

    Do they have Orange Julius in the malls any more? A chance to get some refreshment from a young, fashion oppressed waitress and reminisce about the old La Vie Claire days.

    I do like the Eurosport commentary. As long as they don't have Carlton Kirby. He's brutal.

    Much more team coverage this year on NBC Sports. That means much less straight Phil & Paul. I think...

    Watch the Gerrans-Talansky replay. Keep your eye on the white line on the road. Sure, there are moves before and after, but for the crash "window" as he is alongside Talansky, Gerrans is moving...

    Some of you folk are either color blind or are watching on an old cathode ray tube set. Others are getting down to reasonable issues.

    I've got my problems, too. I'm not so good at picking out...

    Why is everyone beating on my boy Gerrans? Pesky Talansky, cost me a few points. If you ask me, it was him that slewed left, not Gerrans coming right. Watch Gerrans relative to the white stripe down...

    There are probably some ladies who could wheel suck along through most of the stages, and as a few folks mentioned they are less-relatively-impaired in climbs. Making the cut on a TT and getting back...

    So I guess today's results change a few things.

    So far, my only fantasy league regrets for X Merckx the Spot are Gerrans being taken out by Cav, and me not knowing enough to pick Coquard who looks...

    Yes, Cav cut me deep. I was counting on Gerrans for a nice run in the first week.

    Too early to tell, but Coquard might be the value find.

    Huh? That is THE template GC best practice. And Contador is one of the legit GC contenders who is perhaps least likely to follow it.

    The only things I dislike about Contador are: 1) that litlle...

    Yes, we did! Ha ha. But I'm feeling really good about this one. Wiggo, Millar, Kreuziger, Quintana, a few Schlecks. What can go wrong?

    Not much chatter here. Oh well, we were handily bested by the duder, and I always like seeing Singing Indurain up there as it's just the most clever team name going.

    Is there already a league on Velogames? If nobody pops up with one in a day or two, I'll create one.

    I didn't get around to nrtoone this year. Just as well, I probably would have picked Martin AND...

    No, if all you need to do is walk a little inside, then carry some light slip on shoes/sandals with you on the bike. Smaller, lighter, and more convenient to put on/off than your office shoes.

    What research did you do that led you to buy and even "love" a specific model without having an answer to this?
