More likely saying the wrong name than mixing up the people: we had Sean Roche on the break in Stage 20 at one point.

It happened.

How is that even possible? Sergio is wearing Colombian national jersey, Sebastian isn't.

I note from Rob Hayles's Twitter feed that the Bike Channel has folded in the UK. Not a huge loss given the poor picture quality and relatively little live action, but a shame nonetheless.

The continental team they sponsored is apparently hoping to continue.

I didn't watch it for a minute, but I'm guessing the highlighted bit played a part.

I can't quite figure out why I love Argylflyer's (sp?) continual updates throughout the season. I might be missing something, but the updates seem so arbitrary and I can't figure out the purpose.
With that said, I love every single one of them.
