Lost July

Published by:

You really don’t expect me to be able to post during the Tour, do you? I’m on pins and needles, rooting for George Hincapie (who had a less than stellar time trial yesterday), or maybe Floyd Landis (who’s doing all right despite a broken handlebar yesterday). In addition to the losses from the latest doping scandal, some of the stars are out, the latest being Bobby Julich, who crashed out yesterday rather spectacularly. His team, CSC, was dominating the sport coming into the Tour. Now there’s almost nothing left of them. And Levi Leipheimer, another prominent American, fell behind by 6 minutes in the TT, just an awful showing. This wide-open race thing is absolutely nailbiting.
