GC victory! His goals may be irrelevant because the team will be telling him what to do.

I just read the story about Lawson signing with SS again. I was actually hoping that he would move to another team. I just don't understand how a WT rider can get so over trained in the spring that they can't recover, and have some good second half of the season racing. Doesn't SS have trainers, and nutritionists? Aren't they testing him regularly?

Vervaeke did the same thing this year. Kwiatkowski last year. Can happen to you even if you're on a good team, it seems. Hell, even Petter Northug (the Norwegian skier) did it.

Now that I think of it it's more plausible than Schutzstaffel.

Yes he’s tough, but really he should drop out now. There was a reason to stay and suffer if he could contribute to the TTT but there’s little or nothing he can do for himself or the team now. He can’t even go get a load of bottles.

He can fundraise a lot of money for a velodrome. Besides, if he aren't hurting his shoulder more, and accepts that he - obviously - isn't gonna get any help from his teammates.

Impressive from him today.

I think he can manage to get to the cobbles. Not sure how much after that, and yes fundraising for the Velodrome is Houston is worth it to stay in the race for a few more days anyway.

Lets not be surprised at how tough Lawson is,
after all like the legendary SuperG who finished
the 2013 TdeF with a fractured pelvis, he's got a
decent palmares on the track starting with national
medals in the 10-12's right up to a USA Junior Pursuit
Championship win in 2010 at Trexlertown, Pennsylvania.

Well actually you can call then anything you want! :lol: I just call them Slipstream because that is the only name that is the same since day one (Slipstream is JV's "company"). Garmin was the longest (major) sponsor (7ish years). I called them Subaru the other day and got a good laugh from some folks!

Cycling in the US needs something positive to talk about, and Craddock's providing that. Unless teams can find wealthy individuals who want to play they have to attract corporations with a positive marketing message. It's unusual for a top team in a sport to disband because of lack of sponsorship, but that's exactly what cycling is facing with BMC. EFD only survived because of an outpouring of public support through a gofundme. That positive story plus Lawson Craddock (an EFD rider) needs to be played up to regenerate interest in the US. I believe BMC is showing us that performance on the road isn't as important to sponsors as a positive image (DD is a good example).

Great job that Craddock keeps keeping on - the kid has heart :)

However, once he hits the cobbles on stage 9, his tour will be over, unfortunately.
