Sub par field?
Well, it IS a continental race. I'd say the top end of the field is up to snuff, though. Pretty exciting battle between Lill, Mancebo, and Louder yesterday. It's great that there's already been two stages of climbing and the top three are only seperated by 40 seconds, with plenty of attacks and active racing.
There's also a quote later on in that article about how top teams admitted that it would be the hardest race in the US this race.
But yeah, maybe the field is just too mixed. Who knows. Am still enjoying it.
