Cadel and the curse of the rainbow jersey for 2010.

Could the curse of the rainbow jersey negate his normal curse?

I just got around to watching it (or at least the part posted on youtube, the last 20 minutes ... in Norwegian.)

That was an awesome race. Wow. About the only way Cancellara could lose was if all 8 of his breakmates worked against him. Which they did. Did you see him cross the line, get off his bike, lean against the barrier, and cry?

How do the Spanish always manage to F up the World Championships? This was a replay of 2007, where they came into the finish with the strongest team, tried to pull some "clever" tactics that were far too obvious and got played by everyone.

Hats off to Cadel. He played the tactics perfectly and had the power to make it stick. But damn that dude is wound too tight. When you win the world champs and aren't even in your right mind enough to throw a salute at the finish ...

Adam, you need to do more race reviews. I learn a lot about tactics from your breakdowns.
