Cippo wins! According to the latest report, he pipped Rodriguez at the line. Whew, finally at age 36.

Go Cippo!
I'm really pleased for him, it's about time he won it. But do you think his win substantiates the claims that the route should be changed to stop it, continually, being won by sprinters?
why no coverage on OLN??? NmSpirito di Finocchio

The Italian broadcaster was asking too much...Velocipedio

for rebroadcst rights. A whole lot of broadcasters outside of Italy declined to pay their price.

Just kidding, tifosi. Sounded like a great sprint finish. Fred was pumped even though he lost.

Also some real news in the race, as a crash in the main field wiped out Erik Dekker and others, with Dekker suffering a suspected fractured femur.

Lance worked for George, but Hincapie finished in 16th place. Lance was last in the main group.

FWIW,

Eric Dekker broke his left femur! My favorite! Oh nooooo! (nm)tempeteKerouak
