SanLuis Sandwich


Embedded image permalinkMhm... "I thought that if we stayed in the group we'd work and catch Diaz but that gamble didn't quite pay off because he stayed away." van Garderen said "I'm surprised because we were rolling through with a group of five, but they're the local team so they're motivated." Mhm... "I've been working with a psychologist," Guevara said "That's been the most important part of my progress. I've had 15 days of racing so far this year, too." I'm suprised too...even perplexed. Only with a psychologist did he worked? or maybe we are simply racist and can't believe a latino won clean his homeland race? Brasilian Diniz and Argentinian Guevara put my bet in a latin sandwich while Kwiatkowski is now 9th overall... Mhm...! "We went full gas at the start of the climb," Contador said "I went with Danny Diaz but I quickly said, hey Alberto, you don't feel good, you need to go slower. I waited for van Garderen and we worked together." Mhm...!
Sometimes the break stays away, sometimes the group fails to misure the chase's pace. This time however it all looks a little weird. On today Gazzetta there was a very hard article... Too hard maybe. You should be sure before you go so hard. Lets see next days - moths? years? - doping results...  
So far my bet is 17'' down: allez Tejay! you can still do it! ...or sony? Mhm...!
