I think overall, they did pretty well. No Time Trial but as was pointed out by Surak having TT bikes would greatly increase the cost to the teams if they used the specalized bikes but hopefully they can work on getting that in at some point. I don't think increasing team sizes to 7 will do anything but run up the cost for teams at this point. And that final stage climb was brutal, just like it was for the men a few weeks earlier (where some of the men PUSHED their bikes up that last portion). 8 days is fine for now in length. Glad to see good crowds. Having 2 mountain stages at the end was a good call, you don't want this race to be over on a Thursday.

Good job and gave us an extra week of racing to watch.
