Watch out for Cyber-Rasmussen next year with RadioShack. With Armstrong's "counseling", he could put 10 minutes into Contador in the Tour. :D

The stage was actually 110kms
and to think people accuse armstrong of beating up on the locals..
and the chicken goes beating mexicans by ten minutes...

are we even meant to try and take this seriously..? this is as ridiculous a news story as i have ever seen

thank you kease7 for as ever keeping us up to date with south american cycling, i think you are a credit (maybe cn should pay you to cover races).. but, this is just..

im lost for words...

after three stages he leads by ten minutes, with 3rd place another ten minutes behind.. sounds more like paris-dakar.. :/

this is interesting.. rasmusson not only won the stage by ten minutes, but also rode so fast that neither the tv cameras, or the press managed to get pictures of him, and as such the news have been obliged to use an old photo of him in the reports..

edit:

not as random as cycling news who have used a photo of him winning on col d'Aubisque... WOW...

Cyclingnews did use an up to date photo, it's just that Rasmussen happened to be training on the Aubisque and racing in Mexico at the exact same time. It's his superhero power. I believe he's even got a backdated TUE for it. ;)

9:41 in 110 kms? Ay Caramba! Is he back on the sauce or were his opponents riding tandem bikes? I like how he credits his team, I wonder what they did for him 10 mins back.... pull out pistoleros and hold up the rest of the peloton?
