Horner SUCKS

So where did he go after Cadel helped him to a stage win? He's dropping like a rock, and can't hang to help Cadel, who at least has a shot at the overall.

I don't see what's so cool about him. He's not nearly as good as he thinks he is, and obviously is of no help to teammates.

Valverde, on the other hand, seems ready for the Tour, baby.

I'm not sure what race you are watching? Horner worked hard for Cadel Evans the past few days, and absolutely buried himself for Evans today. Horner and one of the Caisse d'Espargne riders pulled back the break today by themselves while everyone else in the lead group sat on. Horner has been in the wind a ton this week and played some perfect tactics to get a stage win the other day. He is obviously not a superman in the league of Valverde and others, but the guy rides hard. Having watched most of the stages live this week, I am very impressed with his riding. He has his team leader within 24 seconds with only a time trial to go. Evans has had opportunities to attack. Not sure why he hasn't, except Valverde is in amazing shape and is killing everyone. Valverde toyed with the other riders on the way to the finish today.
