Who is this company? It's got me curious since they got major branding today in the world! I wonder how much this gig cost them...

On a side note, Mr. Gilberto Simoni (who is a great rider) is now 3:08 behind Lance. The battle is over before it even started.

I've wondered about that company. I guess putting your name on lance's jersey is only a good move if your sure enough people are willing to take the effort to find out what the hell a "berry floor" is.
WRT Simoni...It's kind of a shame. It was great to see postal dominate today but what everyone really wants to see is LA really have to work for it in the mountains. We'll have to see who steps up to the plate....Jan? Yo-She-Bah?
I think Jan will step up and swing in theOldEdScott

mountains. May not connect with the ball, but it won't be for lack of trying.

As for Yo-She-Bah -- I've yet to see him show the fierce heart necessary to make that long, final jump from top- competitor-but-also-ran to champion. I don't know why this year should be any different for him.

yeap Simoni will loose another 2min in individual TT and then 3min in another team TT. It is unlikely Lance would crack and loose 8min in mountains.

From the VeloNews 2003 Official Guide:

Stage 19/Time Trial/49 km

This makes sense, as there is only one team TT in the TDF. BTW, did the Giro have a team TT?

... that gave some money to Postal when Boonen was still on the team. It was a way they could support the next big Belgian cyclist.

Since Boonen left, they signed Van Hejwik (sp?) and are looking for another Belgian to keep the Euros coming into the budget.
Yeah I think Berry floor had toDwayne Barry

get into the market to fight all the publicity Quick-step is getting from cycling. I think they're both Belgium companies selling essentially the same type of product.
