Phonak's 'defense' of Landis' yellow jersey was the worst I've ever seen. Yeah, they gave it up on purpose but, seriously, show some pride.
Anyone else read Boonen's comments about the difficulty / length of the race contributing to the culture of doping that surrounds cycling right now? Good point, or sour grapes? Either way, a man who shows up at a function wearing an undershirt that looks like this can speak his mind. Good stuff.
Also read that part of Hincapie's problems so far can be attributed to the fact that the 6'3" rider currently weighs in at about 155lbs. He dropped too much weight pre-Tour and his body is now consuming muscle mass to keep going. Or something like that. Don't these riders have nutritionists and advisors with years and years of cycling experience?
Rest day before the Alps. Sure would be something if Landis doesn't recapture yellow fairly quickly.
"It's, like, so much fun."
