Brochard wins, Lance looking better . . .

here's a link. I'm pretty new to cycling, so i'm not real familiar with Brochard or this race, but it's nice to see lance do better after a disappointing Paris-nice.

World champion in 97 who's showing great form this year. Worst hair in the peloton.

A Frenchman any backwater hick could identify with. Doing is best to attract crossover fans from NASCAR.

I saw that Thomas Voeckler finished in 17th place. It's a great showing. Good for him, starting out his season so positively.

Poor bastard. He probably sat up just before he hit the finish line, costing him his win. Why do they do that anyway?

From the picture of the winner crossing (with the car right behind him), perhaps the guy who placed second didn't know there was someone up ahead.

The bunch sprint finished a full 7 seconds (aka eternity) behind Brochard.
