It doesn't get any more textbook exciting than this: hero suffers numerous adversities; the villain threatens; but our hero in a superhuman burst conquers all!!!! If Disney doesn't make a movie of this...!

At least the final time trial is on a Saturday, and not Sunday with the bs CBS "coverage." That will tough to watch. I think Jan may still take the TT, but maybe by not enough.

Attacks this week on GC?

And my friend said, which do you want first, the good news badMel Erickson

The good news is I'm going to Hawaii. The bad news is I'll be on a plane most of the day Saturday! My only hope is we can stall leaving for the airport long enough to see the stage. I don't know what I'm more excited about. Going to Hawaii for my sons wedding or the ITT. Am I sick?
change flights and go the night before nmDougSloan

Oh, if that were only an optionMel Erickson

Frequent flyer miles on two tickets, regular fare on four others, sister-in-law with two kids 11 and 9 in tow. Brother-in-law arranged to take us to the airport. All too complicated and no one would understand anyway. Oh, the life of a lonely cycling fan!
call the airlineDougSloan

Ask the airline to set up in flight satellite radio or internet feed. You never know... ;-)
