VdV takes Yellow Jersey in TOM
Christian Vande Velde took the time trial today at the TOM!!!!! He is now wearing the leaders jersey and is #1 in the GC!!
He came in at 39:52. Go VdV!!!!! Go Argyle!!
Michael Rogers took 2nd--20 sec behind VdV.
Don't see a certain cocky British sprinter in the top 10 for today. (You know who I'm talking about.) My voodoo doll worked!!!!!
Other riders of interest (and mostly argyle) include:
Hincapie 4th 1:02
DZ 5th 1:10
Tom Danielson 8th 1:23
Danny Pate 10th 1:24
According to the CN ticker: By virtue of his strong time trial, Vande Velde also takes over the leader's jersey. Having been a contender in this year's Tour de France, we know he stands a good chance of being able to defend the lead throughout the rest of the race, especially with a strong Garmin / Chipotle team on his side.
Bad News!! Blake Caldwell crashed in today's TT and was taken away in an ambulance. There is no word yet on how he is doing. I heard that he was conscious.
I hope to have some pics from my bud today; especially as she is a big-time VdV fangirl!
