Damn! That musta sucked for those two guys in the break-awayCarleton

Wow! I just watched the OLN replay of today's stage. That last three kilometers was pure suspense. I really wanted the pelaton to have large crash just so those two guys (I don't know many names yet)could sprint it out at the finish. It must have been really rough when the sprinters caught them witht the finish in sight. Wow!
without radios they might have succeded...Bruno S

one complaint is that radios make breaks more difficult. The directors of the teams can listen on the radio the time gap to the break and the distance left to the finish. The speed required to catch the break can be calculated using a computer or calculator. This information is transmited to the peloton and the result is that they can catch the break with perfect timing.
