|Tyler took the 30 km TT over Paolo Savoldelli by 1:35. Saturday's TT will be about 43 km and fairly flat. Mathematically Tyler can win, but with the "magic" power of having the pink jersey on Savoldelli's shoulders, he might be able to at least keep Tyler from taking enough time to win it from him. It will be a test of character as well as ability.
It should almost be good enough for me to skip my Saturday morning ride!
