cycling: OK. Team Discovery has been less than spectacular. No real wins or close victories so far. Lance has been so- so. to the point I was beginning to think that he should have retired last year on a high note.

I watched Tour of Georgia bike race on OLN - thanks for telling us in the TV guide it was 90 mins when it was 2 hours by the way - And on the final stage up the Brasstown Bald (which sounds rude) Tom Danielson from Team Discovery was in the lead and could will the multi stage race. Lance's former teammate Floyd Landis - now riding for Phonak - was in the lead before the final day. A minute over anyone. And in the last few km, Tom D was nearly caught up 56-58 seconds made up. He really pumped it and finished. Next up the massive mountain was Floyd. On his wheel literally was Lance. Lance and Floyd were working hard to keep any pace on the long, long, steep climb.

Lance wasn't helping him. If he gave Floyd someone to chase, it could be a few seconds less between Floyd and Tom at the end. and Floyd might actually catch and win the overall race. finally, when there was no hope of Floyd surpassing Tom - I think within a km, Lance took off. Took. Off. It was now apparent that Lance was toying with Floyd and not just trying to hold him back. He launched so fast that when you glanced away from the TV he was there, and then he wasn't and was up and around a turn. Shot ahead. Lance turned to look back closer to the finish when Floyd could see him again. In a typical Lance move, he looked at Floyd as if to say., "Yeah, I was F***ing with you. I could have taken you kms ago. I just helped you lose and my guy win. And you should have stayed with US Postal. Cya!" :)

This was a classic move. Tour de France fake out worthy - like a couple of years ago when he came off sluggish all day and then shot off at the bottom of a killer mountain and passed everyone. This was classic Lance and refreshing to see. It was as much to tell everyone else that he was still in fine form and has some juice even at this point in the season. I'd love to have a picture of that look as wallpaper.

60 days till the Tour.

Bring me some warm cycling weather Damnit!!!

Carpe Diem
