I don't think anyone will go under phinney's time, although I don't think zabriskie's time was very good

imo leipheimer won't win either. besides this year leipheimers itt suck quite a bit, other than san luis, but you never know in usa...
Agree - I don't think Levi will win, but I'm not voting for him to win. When it comes to Levi, CVV and TJ, it is which one of them comes 1st and by how much. Taylor's time looks real good, and I'll vote for him to win.

Not from Boulder, still a Phinney fanboy!

Hey now...I live here and we have our fair share of @*******....and I am a bit tired of constant hype of TP.
THere are many reasonable folks around that cringe when we hear some of the dribble...:p

He's previously shown he's better than that, especially in short TTs. His prologue in Suisse was wonderful for instance.
yes, which was a hilly climb with a technical downhil after it. not much to do with itt, really

It was an example among others.
All of his ITT results from this year suggest he's better than losing one minute in 15kms to Taylor Phinney. All the ones I remember at least.
You can check them.

I wouldn't call him a specialist, but he's better than this when in top shape (which is clearly not the case, as previous stages show).

Don't think he'll be trying very hard.

Have to say that this course isn't exactly technical.
Wide roads and gentle bends, almost like a giant, flat velodrome.
3rd best time. He's been going well here dispite no results.

I know all his results. in italy he was a pretty good itt rider, but in italy that doesn't man much. today is against real specilists of world class on a pure itt course
 
Nibali's building up very well towards the World Champs. Curious to see him in the Giro di Padania.


What Ryo said earlier is true. Nobody is losing much in the final section of the stage, meaning Phinney slowed down in the end. Kloden and TVG might still claim the win.
