Does that mean we finally get to give Mechov a nicknmae :D

Mechov is the Cookie Monster!

The Cookie Monster does have some experience with medical preparation. It looks like he and Boonen will get along famously.

Armstrongs final TT

Anyone else struck by how poor Armstrong's final time trial was? The guy tries to make his comeback clean but I reckon come the tour he'll be hoping for some new blood (probably his own) to keep him in contention. Or am I being too cynical?

He released the pedal when he saw the danger of a fall. I am sure quite a few of the top riders, also, released the pedal when they saw the imminent danger of a fall because of the rain in the cobblestones. Had nothing to race for at that point.
