    Did anyone sign up for the online Versus coverage?

    When watching it later on, how do you fast-forward? We just can't seem to make it work!!

    I did see one of the team mechanics (from Lampre, maybe?) slip and almost fall as he was running over to help one of the crashed riders. It must have been crazy slippery if people were having trouble on foot. I hope there were no serious injuries.

    I'm glad Chavenel won -- nice to see a Frenchman on a Belgian team putting on the YJ after a stage in Belgium. Quickstep probably didn't expect much from this race after Boonen was unable to start, but now they hold the yellow, green and polka dot jerseys.

    And speaking of polka dots, WHAT THE HELL are those podium girls wearing?? Their skirts look like golf umbrellas.

    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    LOL! You know those are beautiful models with wonderful figures, but the outfit doesn't even give them a waist. Just ugly.

    Are the podium girls for the stage winners wearing rubber jumpsuits?

    I like the kookie polka dot podium girl outfits!

    Maybe the organizers could consider a 'bloodiest rider' contest and the podium girls could dress (and walk) like zombies!

    I was wondering the same thing. They are very much not flattering.

    Looks like Christian VDV and Tyler are out. Garmin took a big hit today.

    I read it was oil from the moto that crashed trying to avoid the first rider who crashed. Sad for everyone who went down (and out), but still, I'm very happy for Quickstep!

    I also like the umbrella outfits.

    I can't imagine what Farrar is thinking! Seriously? He's planning riding on cobbles with a broken wrist? The man is clearly insane.

    Love him for being so committed though!

    Sad about Vande Velde. Garmin are my boys... I can't stand it that so many of them are having so much trouble.

    Too bad for Christian and Tyler. I'm a VDV fan since he's from Illinois and I really hate that Tyler has a broken wrist. I was looking forward to him giving Cavendish a challenge. How long do you think he will make it today on those cobbles with a broken wrist??? How dedicated is that??
