Tuesday Shorts 8/26


USA Pro Challenge
Jensie (42) one of the most likable characters in the peloton retires. Known for attacking a lot and losing a lot. Good stuff. Dear Trek, more chrome please. Danke! TJV owns week long stage races in the U.S.


La Vuelta
Stage 1 TTT. Yawn. Bert makes race more interesting. Kingtana-Froome duel please. Didn't expect that stage 1 result from Movistar. They came to play. Evans rides a dark horse. Can anyone explain the Horner deal???
