Tuesday Shorts 9/16


Vuelta
Pistolero wins Vuelta consolation prize. Gotta say, he made it exciting for all the armchair quarterbacks protected riders out there. Froome gained my respect with his cagey riding and all-in attacks. Elbows-be-ugly, much love for panache.


Grand Prix
Australia invades Canada. Gerrans rainbow stripes? Cadel retires.


Cross Vegas
