Amgen Tour of California
Floyd smoked them all today. Impressive. I had hoped that Hincapie would do better in the time trial but oh well. Did anyone see the Mexican National team after the prologue? Their whole team was among the bottom 15 riders. A friend of mine watched stage 1 in Santa Rosa over the weekend and said that the entire team was dropped on the main climb and never caught back on. When the peleton entered the final few circuits through downtown Santa Rosa they got relegated so that the lead pack could have a clear path to sprint. My buddy said that their team car had no spare bikes, nor spare wheels on top. Low budget team I guess. Good thing there is nuetral support in the race.
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
