Twas a sad week in cycling.........

GAHHH! Wouldn't you hate to be that trophy?
I imagine Contador had to douse himself in a mild bleach solution after giving
Vino the obligatory hug.

Handy Andy and Gilbert charging towards the finish of L-B-L-
Andy! Why didn't you try harder in that last 10K? The forces of evil are now
running the pro peloton!

As the Spring Classics come to an end, and the season of the Grand Tours looms; I find myself somewhat disillusioned, disenchanted, disenfranchised and disgusted. When the winner (the Evil Dopehead Vino) has to go on record that his "victory was clean" and is booed by the fans I am also discouraged, disgruntled, disengaged and disappointed. Additionally, anything that dismays the brothers Schleck causes me dismayal and disapproval. BTW- congrats to Frank on the new little Schleckette.

Wonderer, speculator, conspiracy theorist, and strange person that I am; I find my mind spinning around the question: Why is Andy racing the Tour of California and not the Giro? California girls are cuter? He wants to get in tip top shape for le Tour without the pressure (and hamburger factory) that the Giro can apply and become? Any ideas in the fangirl universe?

Why oh why couldn't UCI/WADA/Animal Control/ Men in Black/ANYONE have just saved us all the hassle and banned Vino for life? He's a prick and could have used a prick from the green needle at the Humane Society if you know what I'm saying. Just can't muster any kind of enthusiasm for this dood.

Cuddles' (while still in desperate need of an eyebrow waxing) won Fleche Wallone. It seems he has finally learned the value (and how-to) attack. Although I must say that the BMC kit certainly does not flatter the reporter smacker from down under. Most of you know my views on Cadel, so no need to elaborate on HOW MUCH I HATE HIM right now. I'll wait until le Tour.

Anywho, hopefully the battle among the forces of good and evil in the pro peloton take a turn towards the side of good soon! Was glad to see VDV racing today and look forward to watching him have a good Giro. There ARE forces of good! The Argle Armada-VDV-DZ, the Schlecks, Jensie, Uncle Bjaarne, Fabulous Fabian, George Hincapie, Chris Horner need to take the bulls by the horns and kick some evil A$$!

Good luck to the Best Bike Racer in the Universe, and may the force be with you all.

But the Fabulous Fabian looked like he was riding a motorcycle! Unbelievable! The man is a monster. SexyBank has a deep bench for the coming grand tours. I'm seeing Fabulous as more of an allrounder this year. Uncle Bjarne must be happy. Who wants to bet that Andy wins Amstel next week?
