Looks like bit of a snooze fest with Cav getting the win and reminding us how great he is.

But what other top riders are here? Personally I think moving it to May has been the wrong move as many of the top riders may stay away as they will not be prepared to put up with the long travel out to America at this time of the year when they are in full training for the Tour de France.

It's not a really big problem and it seems to hurt more when he's walking then when he's on the bike, but if he doesn't even try for the win (he tends to hide in the peloton when he's not in the mood), that's probably why.
