I've been watching, between World Cup games, the Tour of Catalan where the USPS team took the opening TTT. Hincapie was wearing the leader's jersey after Boonen. Yesterday's stage was a 12k uphill ITT. Heras is on form, unlike last year when he was plagued with knee problems. He was ahead of Garmendia at all the splits by about 10 seconds before fading a bit at the end and taking second for the stage but the overall. Things are looking good for USPS' TDF defense.

Interesting to watch Hincapie, using an extremely small gear and ending up in the top 40.

Zarrabeitia for Once looked like he was finding the new CF Giant TCR.

If the pattern continues where a different USPS rider wears the leader's jersey each day, I see a problem. There are only seven stages in this race, but eight team members on USPS. Someone won't get to wear the jersey. I wonder who that will be. Maybe someone will crash out and it won't be a problem.
