Hot damn. I was driving to school this morning (yes, I have no off days in this gig) and I got a text message from my man Dirty.
This many big men at the front going over the poggio is insane!!!
As I was in the car, I called him back rather than risk life and limb stabbing at a tiny keyboard. He was at work, of all places, but took the time to give me a quick recap.
In one word: Freire.
My man Boonen was second across the line. All you can see of him in this photo is his shoulders behind Friere’s outstretched arms. Talk of second place being meaningless – he has nearly disappeared in Friere’s glory. Third place went to Alessandro Petacchi.

I can’t descend worth a shit. I have severe acrophobia. I about fell off the bike doing South Mtn for the first time the other day. I’d rather go up, looking down messes me up.
Well, that’s it for now. Back to the grind. This morning I’m reading about Constitutional Law. It feels like win.
