Big props to Sammy Sanchez. That Spanish squad was loaded, but I don’t think anyone was naming Sanchez as a favorite. The guy rides for Euskaltel, for crying out loud. When’s the last time they ever won anything on a big stage?
On the women’s side, Cooke’s win was great to see. She chided the breakaway to work together while she sat in the back of the paceline in order to make a well-timed jump for the win. Great tactics.
On another note, I can’t help but notice an eerie similarity between Bela Karolyi and Captain Kangaroo.
and lastly…ZOMG! Dara Torres is 41!!!1!
ugh. Call me when they discover Jeannie Longo.
