Today’s Twitter Trail (2009-06-17)

  • George finishes 1.05 back. Well, I think that decides the podium chances. Still opportunity for a stage win! Go @ghincapie! #
  • Wish I could speak Italian — or at least understand it! #
  • Hold it, that F. Schleck in the first group. Andy drops from 3rd place. Yep. Valjavec, Zaugg, and Cancellara are 1,2,3 on the GC. #
  • Don’t think there will be any change in the podium GC at this point. I think Hincapie comes in 1.00+ back. #
  • Albasini wins it! Another win for Columbia. #
  • 1 K and Columbia rider is laying it down! #
  • Under the 2 k banner and all together… no, there goes a about three riders on an attack. Good jump! #
  • 2 k and another attack. It appears to be Tony Martin again. #
  • 3 k to go and the front is fluid though just now it appears group is stretching out to single file. Someone is picking up speed. Cancellara? #
  • 4 k to go and Tony Martin gets pulled back in. Cancellara is in this group with A. Schledk. #
  • Well, there is an attack by a Columbia rider. He gets a few seconds. #
  • 5 km to go and the route has leveled out a bit.ag2r is taking the front with Columbia appearing to want to play a role. Here is an attack. #
  • Columbia has four riders in this group. No @ghincapie 🙁 I think that last rider I saw was Kirchen. #
  • 6 k to go and there is no gap at all. #
  • Martin just bridged up to Taaramae. 7 k to go and the gap is still around 9 seconds. #
  • Tony Martin is the Columbia rider attempting an attack. Monfort also seems to be in position. So with Valjavec and A. Schleck. #
  • The Cofidis rider is Taaramae. #
  • 7 seconds now. Don’t see Hincapie anywhere near the front. 🙁 #
  • A Cofides rider is hanging on. He is now at 13 seconds. #
  • 9 k to go. The field is almost back together. Just an eleven second lead on the monster climb. #
  • Sportitalia doesn’t buffer. It just doesn’t look as nice. Harder to understand Italian as well. #
  • Man, if this RTL video feed could just not buffer constantly, it would be a very nice way to watch the Tour De Suisse. #
  • Still hoping for @ghincapie to get a podium finish in the TdS. Today’s will better clarify his chances. Even so, it would take a great TT. #

About Jonathan Pait

Jonathan started riding mountain bikes in the early 1990s. After discovering the ride can start at the end of his driveway, he moved to the road in 2006. Little did he know that first pedal stroke would lead him on an adventure that has become much larger than the bicycle.
