Olympic TT....

Well, who do you think will medal? I'd put my money on Cancellara. I hope to see Levi or Zabriskie on the podium....but i doubt it will happen.

Shumi takes Silver and gets busted for doping. You read it here first.

Schumi won't even place top 10. He and his teammates are all saying how much he is suffering because of the air and humidity.

Zabriskie doesn't have form after his hospital stay.

1. Contador
2. Spartacus
3. Some small bald guy

Time for Astana to exact a bit more respect and for Contador to cement his future as the next true patron

When is the TT? (And when is it being aired on TV?)

Edit: It looks like 1:30pm Wednesday for the men, and it isn't being aired on NBC (only online).

I don't think DZ is on the drugs anymore, so he won't be a factor. He hasn't been since he left CSC.

http://www.cyclingfans.com has the start times for both the women's and men's TT on their site. The women's race is first. I don't follow women's cycling much, but I read on there about Jeannie Longo competing in this event at almost 50?!?! Amazing! Go Jeannie! :-)

it's a reference to the stellar doping program on offer to CSC riders.

Like all other Microsoft software, it doesn't really work right. There's a shock, eh?

I'm sorry boys, but nothing is more annoying than women's gymnastics. Maybe synchronized swimming.

Correct.

I discovered yesterday that We or Oxygen or whichever of the 'women's' networks NBC owns is showing the olympics but only equestrian and gymnastics events. I was so happy to know that less of that crap would be cluterring up the normal coverage.
