Sean Kelly just said on Eurosport di Luca's ego got a kicking yesterday losing the bonus sprint.

Velonews: "We've spotted Di Luca doing a rain dance by his team bus, though", LOL.

Voigt: "The pave was extremely dangerous in the rain and it was too risky to try to push too hard. It's going to be a shame that the Giro, after 3,300km, that it all could be decided by a crash on the final day in these conditions. I hope that it's dry for the final riders in the hunt for the GC and that they can race in fair conditions."

Ha, that's excatly what Breukink said right after the stage. He even dared to say that di Luca might have forgone a sprint in Agnani, because after the intermediate, he could not be sure of a vicory at the end of the stage...

Is the road dry now? Looks like it. So will we get an accurate read of his form, "jacking" ceteris paribus (as always with the peleton)?

Did Lance have an incident on the course? Universal showed him slowed right down, as if he restarting somewhere, and his split looked slow.

Do you think Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwin are watching this stage together and talking just like they do on the air?

I like to believe they are...

You mean, every 4th word is "Armstrong?" I'll bet you're right..

No, he rode the corners like he was riding on ice. JB and LL have already complained on their twitter about the course. I am sure he is just passive aggressively showing his displeasure with the number of turns on the TT. He has shown himself in this Giro to be a real wussy.

No, he's just slow.

If there were an incident, I think it would be on endless repeat for the next 1/2 hour.

LL now.

Funny how Eurosport commentator pronounces Livestrong as "Livstrong", and it sounds like "LipStrong". Maybe fitting for the team and the Steer, LOL.

Don't think he's a wussy, though, more like a snorting Texan steer, stomping the ground, etc., whatever.

43rd. not good. That won't win in Monaco TT vs. Ace Contador, the new sheriff.

My thoughts exactly.
I wonder of Leipheimer has freedom to go all out now, cause him winning the TT would kinda ridiculise Armstrongs message.

yes, his ego fell off his integrated livestrongtrekTTvehicle, so he had to stop to pick it up again/change bikes with the ego red group.

More like a snorting Texan poodle today, stomping the ground and yapping on his twitter.

Any bets on how long it will take Armstrong to post his discontent on Twitter? :D

He is on the team bus now yelling "Hand me my iPhone!"

He finished already right? So any minute now....
