|Wiggins' Time Trial
Today was the last Time Trial and Wiggins kicked ass, but then it is his specialty. He wanted to crush the competition and he did.
There was an interesting interview with Tejay Van Garderen in which he was asked what it felt like to pass Cadel Evans on the road (when that happens during a TT the passer is riding superbly and the passee is usually choking on his bad legs). Very astutely his said he did not feel as though Evans was passing the torch to him, rather, Evans had been dealing with some health issues. I then recalled someone saying he'd dropped so far behind because he had a parasite. Maybe he has a tapeworm or, and this is more likely, he's full of horse shit. Instead of saying he had a bad leg day he's going to blame it on what ever he can, even a parasite. Still, Tejay comes home wearing the White Jersey for best young ride, and he's only 23.

That's right, he's a red, white and blue American!
