Am I the only one who finds it ironic that Rasmussen won a prologue/time trial? All I can ever think of is his performance in the final time trial of the 2005 TdF.

if im not mistaken its just over 4km mostly up hill , with some 2 digit grades

Dammit Susan, you bet me to it! Yes, the irony smells like a vat of, well of something very smelly.

I know it was an uphill TT, but it was nevertheless short - just plain old bullsh:eek:t

was quite suprised to see this result
9 Ezequiel Mosquera (Spa) Xacobeo Galicia 0:07:58

after being one of the top two climbers in the last two editions of the vuelta a espana, i would think Mosquera would easily be able to hang with Oscar Sevilla and Gregorio Ladino. He must still be recovering from his injuries and peaking during the spanish grand tour.

Im also laughing my *** off that Tecos Trek choose Ladino over Rassmussen as team leader even though the the chicken won the prologe

There was a sucessful four man break that finished 7 and a half minutes up on everyone else. Rasmussen and Mosquera lost nearly all their time on that stage.
