Another good finish today. (Stage 14)
Poor weather is forecast to come so hope it doesn't stop pictures being beamed up.

Hi,
Vuelta gets better now and a time trial to finish ? Individual I suppose.
But maybe the race is already won......anything can happen yet.........

That was good TV last night, excellent cycling docu on right after what was, IMO; quite a boring repetitive circuit stage of the Vuelta.

Hi,
Yes it showed up as the manager the sponsor the coach all being very political and two faced especially the coach ? think I got that right.
And Greg remains the only American TDF winner of course.

See the spare bikes being carried by M/cycle pasengers on their shoulders
Not many body parts available to dislodge a saddle like that
M Cyclists carried a spare bike until they got out of the monastery I think - no room for a car

Doesn't look like it:

Has something changed or has the local paper got it wrong?

The full written decision is available by following links from the quoted page if you want to see it.

Been away from computer access for a week, but before I went, local paper again, UKAD accept the drink (alcohol) for the raised levels, they don't accept that he wouldn't have drunk a load of water to rehydrate, he says he didn't for fear of throwing up in front of new team mates. Endura Racing stand by him, and EPO was beyond his financial means. The paper is the Hearald Express (Torbay), page 61, 21/8/14.
Cheers, Rob.
