it's actually turning out to be a reasonably interesting Eneco Tour (spoiler)

Hmm, now where did my first sentence go?

Boom can't be too happy with today's iTT and Chavanel looks in form. One mini LBL and one mini Flanders still to go.

Yes it is, Chavanel uses his strengths as well as anyone if not better than most. Phinney need to get some of that. Argos-Shimano is sure a power for being a Continental Team.

Argos is a Pro Team Bob. Interesting that despite being a force and succesful in Tour Argos is only 18 out of 19 in team rankings. Stage wins in Tour lead to lots of exposure but few points.

Also interesting, Belgium and the US as nations have managed to collect about same amount of points as Sagan alone. Things are not well in Belgium, for first time in long memory they are having to send a reduced sized squad to Worlds.

Dumoulin, he's a local from where I grew up. Good stuff.

For my money some of the best racing of the year, and come one commentators, talking about Stybar like he's some unknown quantity is ridiculous. It happened when he won the stage earlier in Eneco and in Roubaix this year. If a dudes got two rainbow jerseys in his closet (doesn't matter what discipline) you should know who he is and know he has game.
