Not sure who they are. Not as good as Cyclingtv's Backstedt etc., yet, but will see.

Hey, uniballer has less rolling resistance.:D He needs everything he can get now. Must be a shocker to him to be fourth on his team. I think this is JB's comment yesterday.

Or maybe he actually met Vino in person yesterday. Think the latter lives in Monaco.

It would be funny to see Garmin ride for Contador. In fact, any team that really wants to get him next year could make a pretty great deal with him right now. Screw The Hog.

Thanks for the link. I just turned off the audio on the TV and am now getting fantastic commentary about the RACE and not just the uniballer.

Thanks also for the BBC link. I have done the same but the audio is a bit behind the pictures here. Once Wimbledon is over we will get english commentry.

I just saw a Katusha rider make a completely stupid, idiotic, sudicidal attack.
So of course it has to be Ignatiev, I thought. He's got the brain power of an orange.

Sure enough, it's him.

So much talent, so little brains. bah.

Yea, I had to switch back too because of that.... I do like the Versus commercial for the tour where they show a picture of Armstrong and then put "cancer" on the screen. They got that right at least.

You should never try! Absolutly right!
Also never ever has anyone won doing something like that!
Especially Ignatiev has not won a single thing trying stuff like that.

Sarcasm aside, you should never try in that situation. Ignatiev has tried this type of suicidal attack well over twenty times in his pro career. It's never worked. He once won by attacking inside the final 2kms at the Trofeo Laigueglia, and that's very different from this.

Attacking with over 10 to go, with no support when the pack is large and at full flight and the narrow windy roads are all behind you is stupid.

That's completely different from "You should never try".
But hey, if you like putting words in my mouth, feel free. Doesn't show you in good light, though.

Well after what Vino "promised" Contador he migh really not be interested in any other teams anymore. Absolute team leader and the ability to select your domestiques sounds quite good :)

Yea, it was a stupid attack. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

You'd have to use a proxy server like people in Iran and China etc. do. No idea how to do that.

If you can, try for SBS. Alpe d'Huez said it was good (and you get video too; BBC is just audio).

Farrar was in perfect position and never had a chance. That was sick.
