Brajkovic in Oro

Janez Brajkovic of Disco has taken over the lead of the Vuelta e Espana after stage 7! Brajkovic dragged his 115 pound frame over the line in 4th on today's stage behind Valverde, Vino and Sastre to take over the lead on GC. Triki also finished in the same time as Janez. Unfortunately for him, Tommy D was exposed as a pretender for the overall and finished 3:28 down on the day. Stijn Devolder even outclimbed Tommy D and finished in 9th on the day, only 23 seconds down.

The Disco boys are riding strong in the Vuelta, but I bet there will be a new team leader after today's stage. The good news is that Brajkovic was also an U23 world champ in the TT. He may be able to put some time into the other climbers in the TT's.

I wonder if they have a gold jersey small enough for this guy?

Look out Spaniards, "The Sparrow" is coming after you!

I'll have to watch today's stage on cycling.tv tonight. I got distracted at work and missed the end. Anybody who wants to watch come on over tonight.

Nice new masthead, by the way. I thought it was "who are you to wave your finger"?
