Beautiful Ride; but not for Verbrugghe

Hammerson and I got out for an early spin up to the Tech Center.  Pretty cool riding main streets that normally are jacked with cars.  We climbed the Yosemite Bridge over I-25 which is short and steep.  Normally cars are flying across this but at 6:45 am, not a soul in sight.

 

The same couldn’t be said for the breakaway in today’s Tour stage.  I would have expected somebody to sweep the sand out of that corner before the Tour got there.  Might cost Verbrugghe his career just like Beloki on the same road.  Did anyone else notice the fourth rider that skidded in that corner?  It’s not hard to imagine all six going down on that turn.  Stupid Tour.

That was Comesso doing a very impressive slide through the turn after Verbrugghe jacked it up in front of him. It's amazing they didn't all go down together.

By the way, how does T-mobile keep surviving these off-road excursions unscathed?
