Vuelta Stage 15I Love Shimano

Any of you guys see the race last night (yesterday afternoon for some of you)? It was so awesome. Unlike the TdF where it was mostly Lance vs. Jan, we had a lot of climbers who were gunning for the stage win! Bravo to Moller for staying away from the likes of Heras, Rubiera, Casero, Jimenez, and Sevilla. Awesome. Casero was such an inspiration...watching him go up the mountain, trying to chase down Moller. Too bad today is a rest day, we'll just have to wait for tomorrow's stage!

One good point to look at, was that moment when Casero jumped first time real hard and Sevilla reeled Casero back with too big gears; it looked good, but Casero hit that go-button once again and Sevilla was done...could not change his rhytm no more;I bet Sevilla had pretty 'full legs' in that moment...learning for sure...well; next time smaller gears...

Yes, this is certainly more exciting than the TdF. There are still many changes happening in the top 10 and it could still be anyone's race. Pity about Leipheimer... lost a couple minutes yesterday on the final hill.

Casero was indeed impressive, but Sevilla did a great job closing the gap and minimizing lost seconds during the last 2km of the race.

There were a lot of great efforts making this the finest stage so far in this years Vuelta.
