Did everyone notice Bettini coming off that mountain -- what a ride!!
I have it on tape and a few times he it the turn so perfectly he never hit the brakes. I've raced in my life and descended from a few mountains and I could never drop that fast with that much confidence.
Another note: Has Ulrich learned to descend? I remember the 97 tour, when in yellow, Ulrich had to be coached by Riis on a few descents because he was so bad. It would have been interesting to see him on the descents today.
