first they blast us with Grewal’s admission …
“I was impressed,” Hamilton said. “At the end we were chasing hard and couldn’t pull it back. I will take responsibility for that, I was the captain on the road and I probably gave them too much freedom. But they earned most of that freedom.
“We were confident we could bring it down when we had to,” he continued. “Sure, we had a reduced team from our efforts from the day before, and yeah, I am still getting my feet wet, I haven’t raced in a long time. But the number one thing is that those guys up the road were really strong. People are looking at the negative, that we messed up, and sure, we did. But the guys in front deserve a lot of credit — a lot of credit. They were really strong. We really underestimated how strong they were. That guy Cameron Evans is a big, big young talent. After the fact I hear that those two are both not huge names yet, but super strong. I think you’ll hear a lot more about both of them.”
Hamilton said after the race the team was disappointed, but made a point to congratulate Evans on his race-winning ride — an example of leadership by a rider many labeled the “nicest guy in the peloton” during Hamilton’s racing career, which ground to a halt after a homologous blood-doping positive at the 2004 Vuelta España.
i’m sorry folks, but VN is showing off right now.

Adam Switters was one of the guys chopping redwoods down there at SanDimas to keep Sevilla in the leader’s jersey. I’ve done that stage race and even did a bit of work for Horner one year over that brutally bumpy circuit race. I know what it was like to ride at the front then, and i think it’s harder to do now.
and he and a few other young RockR’s put themselves to the sword all day long out there for the bosses.
so, that’s me tipping my hat to how strong those boys performed. all of them.
how much do we turn the cheek and embrace to bosum? or do we scorn to protect and punish?
i mean, i can’t say 3 words without burping up a skeleton … so, i’m not tossing rocks at glass houses here … but, i just don’t have this all figured out yet.
what do we say to TugBoat and his return to our peleton?
