    Tour talk -- Spoiler alert

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I want to know where Cancellara buys jeans. Talk about a hard-to-fit figure -- those thighs are beyond massive.

    And I'm excited to see how Tony Martin develops over the years. Looks like he has a great future. No shame in losing out to Spartacus.

    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    Yeah, Tony Martin is great. He's got some years ahead of him. He's still in the white jersey.

    I haven't heard of Brent Bookwalter before. With that finish today, he deserves some coverage.

    Aww, at least his hometown cares: http://www.mlive.com/sports/grand-ra...nt_bookwa.html

    I remember Bookwalter from the Tour of Utah last year.

    Fabian is built identical to my DH. Of course my husband does not wear tight jeans. But my husband is one inch taller, 5 lbs light and huge thighs. Pretty funny.

    I hope Tyler Farrar didn't use too much energy on that pretty nice ride.

    I'm a huge BMC fan so I've been following Brent for a while. Down to earth guy. He was 2nd in the Giro d'Italia prologue behind Wiggins this year. This boy is going places!

    I didn't see either the Giro or Utah. See, now there's the problem with Versus (but I don't want to dis Versus. I'm happy they show cycling at all!).

    For Utah, we just had to go outside and watch it!

    Fabian is very nice to look at.

    Could the Versus crew discuss the road conditions more? I needed to hear about the road drying for the late crew another 100 times before it was going to sink in. lol

    Fabian has great hair. He even looks good with helmet hair.

    Poor Tyler. He just can't get a break. Today should have been his.

    Seriously. How much force does it take to rip off a derailleur? He's lucky he walked away from that.

    Wouldn't it be funny if...

    The Garmin team got lost? Like, if their bus took a wrong turn or something like that?

    OK - lame, I know. But it's hotter than hell right now and my brain has melted.

    Their bus nearly ran me over today. Actually, a couple team cars nearly ran me over today. Maybe I need a walking Garmin.
