Cycling news.

Looks like stage 6 in the Vuelta is over. I'd like to hear some thoughts on the race so far. Did anyone get a chance to watch it?

I think it would be great if Sevilla won it. Based on his performance at the TDF he has a shot. I think Zabel is racing well too. Also, Heras, Rubiera & Zberg. But, the race is still far from over.

Oh, and stick a fork in Pantani, he's done. I don't think he is going to get any stronger as this race continues.

With as many TT's as the organizers put into the race, the climber who is the best in the TT's will most likely come out the victor in the end.

I'm really enjoying watching Zabel's performance, but I thought he may have come out a lot worse after yesterday's crash. Today, he appears to be fine, and his third place on such a hilly stage is a great indicator of really how good his form is.

As for a prediction on the winner, I currently like Beloki. He's the best TT rider of the top ten right now. It should be a fun one to watch!!

Even better, no Bob Varsha commentating!!!
