|I cant believe that he's not only hanging in the race, but journaling for velonews as well in his "free" time.
I bet he typed more for his article than i did at work all day too.

|Yeah great read !
I liked this part..........
""But it was pretty gritty out there. There may be a few more trips to the dentist in my future after today. """
What a guy ! ;-)

|"There is no telling how long I am going to be able to keep going, but today was a critical day for the team. With Carlos carrying the weight of our GC hopes, we didn't want him to lose too much time. Everyone put in a good effort, and I was happy to be able to do my part."
I'm kind of bummed. The team is now officially working for Sastra, not Tyler. Maybe that's how cold the sport is. A healthy Sastra is a better bet than an injured Tyler.

|When I heard of this deal, it sort of shed a new light on finishing the tour. I guess for eight million bucks one can do about anything. Hell, look what they did to Steve Austin for six million dollars.|

You are so wrong... Tyler is a true competitor. He had worked so hard, he just can't give up... And he didn't get 8 million to finish the Giro last year with a broken shoulder... In 2nd place! That was incredible, and he is incredible... I've been following him for several years and if you even read half of his diary entries , you would know he is NOT just about making a buck..
|would you ride with broken collarbone for as much? nm||cyclopathic|

|Lets set the injury straight||spookyload|

|His collarbone is cracked, not broken. And from what I have read at Le Equipe, it is a hairline fracture. Were it broken, he would not be riding his bike at all, let alone moving his arm at all since it would have to be imobilized. And yes, I did ride the last 12 hours of a 24 hours race last year with a cracked wrist. Cracked bones don't hurt unless the bone is twisted in just the right direction.
I hate to sound like the guy who doesn't think Tyler is a stud, but I am seeing way too much hoopla about his collar bone. How about Jimmy Casper riding with a neck brace? Much more difficult in my eyes. My point is it will all make a nice drama we can go see at the IMAX theater.
|spookyload= one super stud......||stik__boy|
