You are absolutely right, We have some good racing going on. The D-Tour has been as exciting as a race can be with Erik the ageless wonder holding onto a scant 7 second lead. Yesterday’s stage was won by a jubilant Graeme Brown who has been a bridesmaid for almost 4 years now. Looking at Graeme as he crossed the finish line you know why we race. Today’s stage should shake things up with the mountains looming.
The tour of Denmark is also worth checking out. With his prowess in the ITT, Fabian Cancellara holds a 20 second lead over teammate Stuart O’Grady. Sentimental favorite for me is Frank Hoj. Even though he is 2 minutes down, I hope he can pull off a miraculous break like the one he did at the 2002 Het Volk. I know, Frank finished second to Peter van Petegem but the effort will always stay with me as heroic.
