Anyone watch the Vuelta this morning? I don't want to give away anything for those who will watch it later, but for those who know what I'm talking about, what a way to cross the line! I think that's what I'd do if I had the chance! Even though he almost got hit by the car following him!

on the internet and I cannot wait to watch the recap this evening. Too bad Sastre is having such bad luck!! Now Zabel is finally back where he needs to be with the points jersey!!

That was an exciting and classy finish; his bike carried him to the line, so he carries his bike. I liked it!
a la David Sommers or Alexi Grewaljoy

After those two falls (particularly the second one, when it looked liked he'd broken his collarbone) it was great to see Blanco cross the finish line. I can't remember seeing a leader crash twice on one downhill before.
