TdF Stage 4

In general, team time trials are only slightly less boring to watch than individual time trials (unless Rasmussen is involved). But this was pretty interesting. Two points:

  • I think bike handling is a respectable skill and should be rewarded. I was happy to see Paris-Roubaix decided by bike handling and I don't mind it being part of the Tour.

  • Garmin had four guys working for the majority of the race, compared to almost twice that many for most teams. And yet they beat almost everyone, finishing second by only 18 seconds. That's an amazing effort. One might even say superhuman!
