With the enormity of the news of his Vuelta scratch, Horner searched for solace in the only place he knows, the bike. “I found out this morning, so I went out and rode my bike for six hours,” Horner said. “It’s the best thing to do. It clears the head. It’s where I feel most comfortable, either riding my bike or hanging out with my wife. For me, the best thing to do was to ride six hours. It’s a great day. The countryside is fantastic. … If you had spoken to me this morning, it would have been a bit ugly. When you’re out training six hours, you realize life is not that bad.”

-- he is right. Thank G-d I can ride my bike. It really is cathartic. Hey -- he still is a GC winner and no one will be taking that away......at least for now.
