    Talking of the Giro, have you read Dino Buzzati's book?

    If you enjoyed Bob Roll in Bobke II - it has a story of Hampsten's Giro - DB is worth every penny.

    (and hey, the Giro d'Israel has been totally awesome so far)

    Stuff Velosnooze - stage 4 is plain awesome to re-watch just for the punchy post-transfer-day agony; stage 5 had me rereading Buzzati's Etna chapter with the gnomes and all - and I am :yahoo:about stage 6 :D

    Limiting the damage from a crash before the opening time trial and still being able to stay in the top 10 doesn't sound like a steroid fail or enhancement. There's more to racing than drugs. Enjoy the race without an agenda.
