TT travails and triumphs

A skinny spanish climber beats the world time trial champion, Lance is human after all, Andy figures out how to make a bike go fast in a time trial, and Wiggins just misses the mark.  Funny that Cancellara is kicking back with a beer trying to figure out how Contador beat him today.  The man that both Phil and Paul gush over and describe with that fay British accent as "a beast", was beaten by Contador in his specialty.  The questions now arise about the legitimacy of Contador's performance and rightly so.  Andy Schleck locked up his podium spot, but Armstrong's 3rd place is looking to be the target for both Wiggins and the elder Schleck brother.  My feeling is that the Schleck are going to be lloking to shred the GC contenders on Saturday's Ventoux climb.

Don't forget that this Saturday is the Luna Cycles "Day on the Greenway" to be held at the Lower Creek Greenway parking lot on Powell Ave. from 8 am to 2 pm.  We will have lots of different greenway bikes from Specialized and Fuji for test rides.  You will get 1 free raffle ticket to win a Specialized Carmel 2 bike with your test ride.  Additional tickets will be for sale with all proceeds going to Caldwell County Pathways, the folks who bring you our awesome greenway system.  Tell everybody you know to come take a spin and see what a difference a good quality bicycle makes!
