ToC *spoilers* Stage 1

Just figured I would start another thread so that we can talk about the stage. A break already with Lance, Levi, and Brackovic, yet no cameras?

Obviously not easy.
Anybody know where I can find the women's crit results? My coach was in it and I want to see how she did.

From what I understand the weather is too hairy for the heli's and the fixed wing plane, so the cameras on the bikes have nowhere to beam their feeds too. So no live shots until the weather clears up.

You'd think Vs would have figured out how to film a bike race from more than one camera... apparently not

Space travel usually helps us engineer better technology. It's just a few clouds.

Well I guess it's time for a glass of Tang and turn on the Daytona 500.

This is pathetic, they should at least have some radio-esque coverage since the people on motos should have walkie-talkies to get the information to the talking heads.

Just seen a shot at the finish line. It says PED on the road surface, is this a dig at Basso, Landis and Hamilton?
