epic win by levi _O_

of course he also lost one minute on the descent...
Horner and Busche would not help in the chase. No Sense, Busche for Second GC. Tschopp on top. Levi, wow!

Tour of Utah is a great race.

California and Colorado made me think USA had only boring races, but Tour of Utah was very exciting.

I don't mind globalisation of cycling, if it looks like this. :)

(well, not very much)

I been preaching it all along. Utah defeats the in-town finish method. Except it works on this descent into Park City.

He didn't get dropped on the descent...
Then I must have missed something. I saw a slight pitch uphill in the final downhill where he got dropped. But on the next image he was back on. And then another part later, which was very fast downhill, he was dropped again. So unless I've missed another slight pitch uphill. I don't think so. But whatever...

He initially rode away a bit, then got caught, and then dropped on a short hill.

That was the short in the downhill I was referring to above. Then the next image he was definitely back on again. It was pretty much near the end of the downhill he was dropped again, and that was on a very fast downhill part.

edit: my feelings confirmed

” Daar bleef het niet bij, want nadat hij in de afdaling door een stuurfoutje achterop was geraakt, maar toch weer terugkeerde, had de Brabander nog voldoende macht over voor een felle sprint." (rabosport.nl)

Great result for Busche. Hopefully he can get the hell away from Radioshack after this season.
Busche comes from a running back ground. He has not been racing bikes that long. I think he has a bright future.

This RadioShack Nissan Team I like. Horner is unselfish and admitted after Stage 1 he was tired and did have good power. Yesterday confirmed that, but Horner helped Matt on the last climb. After appearing to be dropped, they came back up. Busche may have known the climb. Horner had his Grand Fondo last weekend and I don't recall him ever doing this race before. He took that descent with room to spare at the back. Probably the first time he's done it.

I was especially impressed, however, by Tschopp all through this race.

Well I think ToC has improved over the last 2 years. Well specially last year was a good race.
This year had some flaws with lots of climbs midway stages, but Sagan liked it :)

Colorado has a lot of space to improve. Last year was there first year and they overestimated the difficulty of long climbs at 3000m with an average of 3-4%. Just wasn't hard enough to cause big gaps.
