A little late on the update due to the fact that I just got back from Wicked with Boo and Fifi. As a review I give it a tall glass of cranberry juice with a double shot of Grey Goose!!
Today's stage was compared to that of a Classics race. So fittingly a breakaway won the stage. Nothing of real interest happened. The GC contenders finished all together. So moving on....
Astana is going to change kits before the end of the week. It's not because of a new sponsor....it's just a new look. I wonder how the riders that haven't been paid in weeks feel about that. Maybe they can sell the old kits to put food on the table.
Just to take a closer look at the top ten GC right now:
2 riders from an American Team (Columbia-Highroad) are in the top 3
2 Americans in the top 10, but they aren't on the American team
The last rider in the GC (at the Tour de France is it the Lanton Rouge, I'm not sure what they call it in the Giro) his name is Bart Dockx, a Belgium rider for Silence-Lotto. How many nasty nicknames was he called at a child? It's almost as bad a Pieter Weening, but not quite.
I found a website with some cool videos from the Giro, mostly riders interviews. I found out Chris Horner loves In N Out Burger. I guess he does have taste!!
The cutest rider in the peloton, Chechu, is 46th, 8;25 off the leader.
