I live in San Diego, so do Palomar a lot? I usually race crits but I'm trying to do EC to elevate my fitness for next season. And the EC's just epic.

I think Lance will probably lose 3rd to Frank. Throughout the race, LA hasn't been able to follow the Schlecks on the mountains. However, I would like to see AC may push Lance up the mountain.
