EDR. here's what i would suggest regarding the torrents

get something like azureus. programs like this are called bit-torrent clients, and it's through these programs you download stuff. the thing you download from cyclingtorrents.nl are the initial files that tells azureus where the pieces of the files are. after you d/l the torrent file, double click it. azureus should now prompt you on where you want to save the actual video file. click okay through this, and the download should begin. lemme know if this helps.

edit: i find version 2.5.0.4 to be quite good. link is here

edit 2: someone else should chime in (i think Ze already has) about a good bit-torrent client for macs, Azureus is apparently only for windows

? You think he should have just let Gibo take the Cima Coppi? It probably means a lot more to an up and coming guy than someone with pages of palmares... and the big effort to win the stage doesn't get your respect?

Did anybody notice that only ONE SECOND separates 3rd and 4th?

1. Ivan Basso (I), Liquigas-Doimo
2. David Arroyo Duran (Sp), Caisse d’Epargne, at 1:15
3. Francesco Nibali (I), Liquigas-Doimo, at 2:56
4. Michele Scarponi (I), Androni, at 2:57



That should make the TT interesting eh?

I was utterly astonished by the 10' high snowpack on the Gavia pass in late May today. That's wild.

Scarponi was 11 seconds behind Nibali at the Stage 1 flat TT. And 8 seconds behind at the Stage 16 uphill TT. Very interesting.

I'm trying to imagine how much snow they have on that Gavia pass in February. Man the skiing there must totally rock.

I'm really enjoying watching the Giro on a daily basis. It's like the TdF only Italian.

Yeah... they shouldn't let foreigners in the race if they don't want them to compete.

I was wondering if Basso passing Scarponi had more to do with helping Nibali than helping himself.

I was definitely rooting for Nibali today.

I watched Sporza feeds of most of the spring classics this year and last. I think I may try to learn some rudimentary Dutch, before next season.

I missed the last few stages because of racing conflicts. I'll see about downloading and watching them; got the plasma hooked up to the computer so it's time to use some tekknowleddgy.

Giro was great. No rodeo commercials, no Phil/Paul LANCE LANCE LANCE (finished 33rd today but look at his Livestrong suppositories). I loved Evans comment about the early stages being raced like they were one day events. Great course, great action, some young kids showing (Giro always seems to showcase talent on the rise...Schleck, Evans, Etc).

Say what you will about Basso, but the guy looks like he was born on the bike.

Tour is probably going to be a letdown.

Yeah, Simoni's always been known for his class. His comments about Basso after the race were very gracious. Schopp got it right:

Tschopp. "As for myself, I've never received any gift in this job"

Big riders can afford to give gifts. Small riders are trying to feed their families or don't you get that? You probably expect your housekeeper to give you a little something at Christmas.
