I haven't been paying that much attention to the Vuelta, but it appears Frank Schleck is still in the running, sitting in 13th place overall. It would be nice to see him win a little something this year after pulling out of the TdF. More news here
Also: Jeannie Longo, the 51yo. French evergreen of the cycling world, took the opening stage of the Steamboat Springs stage race in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. I always try to remember what this athlete is capable of in her 51st year whenever I chalk a disappointing ride up to "old age".
