Alpine Dam

--Rode Alpine Dam today. Some of the most beautiful roads I've ever ridden. The descents were unbelievable. I thought when I left Berkeley I'd miss the riding. Tunnel Road seems to quaint now... I'd take pics eventually.

--In other news, BMC has been rocked by the recent issue with Ballan (tears) and now Frei makes the list. Joe Lindsey has a nice write-up on them.

In addition, the first Chinese in the PRO peloton, Li Fuyu, has been suspended. Not that any of that matters when it comes to doping. Wasn't it Johan who said internal testing wasn't needed? Hmm...

There was also a guy busted for cocaine.

I'm not going to go into this.

--I recently, as in two seconds ago, came across a moral dilemma that's preventing me from reposting this killer pic. This guy has a sick blog so he gets the traffic. No, I won't stop stealing your pics Mr. Watson.

--Speaking of, okay this isn't Watson's work, the Graydioshack service course. I love these galleries.

That, is a pantload of chamois cream. I'd love to visit one. I think the United Health (formerly Ouch) one is in Oakland. Actually, I went to the Kings North Wheelers service course last summer...

The guy on the right is the New Zealand national champ, Jack Bauer. I paid rent when I lived there, he didn't...

--This is crazy. Niko Eeckhout, known as "Rambo," had been racing for the racing for a week with a broken vertebrae. Apparently his chiropractor was on vacation...

Not sure which is worse, this or Hamilton doing the Tour with a broken collarbone.

--Lastly, this year's Dauphine (I'm not going to copy and past the special e's) Libere will feature the Alpe d'Huez. Enjoy the commentary... (apperently "poker face" is a cognate)
