Maybe I was the only one that noticed. Prior to stage 17, they showed LA just before the race started, no question about it, LA was hydrated in a massive way. Just a guess here, I have not seen the other cyclist show that kinda water weight. Is that the secret to victory. Sure I know about taking in water. Would like to know what he is doing, ref. to him retaining the amount of water his face showed. It is safe to say, that I drink approx. 100 oz. of water a day. I have never filled out in the face like that. At Hotter than Hell last year, I did 180 oz. of water during the Century and still lost 4 pounds. Would like to hear the ave. weight lose and water intake during a long stage.

Peace out,
