Farrar takes Giro stage

American Tyler Farrar just won himself a stage at the Giro. Wearing, what appears to be, only one shoe cover. New trend in the making? A must have for the upcoming fashion season? Something the swaggerific Hincapie Sports will soon selling?

In somewhat related news (i.e., another sprinter), Thor “thug sauce” Hushovd just broke his collar bone. Right now a young man they call Cav, presumably on his merry way to race in the Tour of California, is set to measure his apartment for green drapes.

OK, fun over, back to the books.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. I heard they had a bike crash and a race broke out.

    Farrar was fussing with his right shoe after he crashed at 55K to go. Dean and he executed perfectly in the last 500 M, a textbook sprint.

  2. …classy guy, that thor “thug sauce” hushovd…i heard the little girl he ran into was totally unscathed but that the ground he landed on was scorched for a kilometer in every direction…

    …at least i think that was the story…
